FRP Bonding Angles

FRP Bonding Angles consist of layers of multi-axial E-glass laminated with a high performance epoxy resin, with the fibre direction tailored for optimum load carrying capability.

The 90 Bonding Angles have been designed to provide a quick and effective means for making right angle joints between DuFLEX panels.   These pre-cured angles can be bonded in place with an epoxy paste adhesive, and are ideal for inaccessible areas where wet fibreglass taping would be difficult.


  • No wet lay-up
  • Lighter and more consistent than wet lay-up
  • Extremely high strength – to – weight ratio
  • Faster to install than wet lay-up, especially overhead
  • Improved stress transfer between laminates
  • Fatigue resistant
  • Can be kerfed and curved for bases of partitions

Bonding Angle Performance Data

Queensland University of Technology (QUT)
Test report CET 4149/3 –
Tensile tests to fibreglass connections – fins.
Sample Data: Specimen 1 – polyester bonded : Specimen 2 – epoxy bonded
Test Equipment –
Grade A Tinius Olsen Universal Testing Machine, loading rate = 5mm/min

TestSpecimenThicknessNominal AreaFailure Load (kN)/Apparent Shear
12Resisting Shear (mm2)Failure ModeStrength (MPa)
1212148,40077.6 part shear through polyester bond : part tearing1.60
1142130,40068.5kN shear through epoxy bond2.25

In both circumstances, failure of the joins was through the adhesive rather than the Bonding Angle.
