About FBGR Onyx

All the benefits of Onyx are present in FBGR Onyx, but with the added benefit of selective fibre reinforcement with continuous fibreglass, to make key areas far stronger than they would otherwise be. Several concentric rings of continuous fibreglass are added around the perimeter of the part, and further fibreglass infill can also be requested for multidirectional strength.

FBGR Onyx parts.

The application that you have in mind for FBGR fibreglass should be discussed with us so that we can confirm its' suitability, and clarify which areas of your design require the additional strength and stiffness.
