In this chapter, fiberglass reinforced plastics (FRP) raw materials are discussed with particular emphasis on their use in polyester molding compounds. A discussion of the background chemistry is included, where applicable. The chemical formulas are provided for inert fillers together with notes on where the base minerals normally are found, any relevant processing information, normal packaging, and the fillers contribution to the FRP product.
