AIMS is the leading supplier of molded fiberglass gratings to the offshore oil & gas industry. AIMS and its sister company, Delta Composites, LLC, jointly own the intellectual property and the manufacturing of both the molded and pultruded fiberglass grating products. The molded fiberglass grating product is sold as DeltaGrate HS Molded Fiberglass Grating. (HS is an acronym for _high strengthÓ.) Our manufacturing process utilizes a proprietary manufacturing technique that allows us to introduce more glass rovings into the laminate.
Essentially, a fiberglass grating consists of two components_fiberglass rovings and resin. The glass provides the strength, and the resin provides the resistance to the environment (i.e., the corrosion resistance, the UV resistance, the impact resistance, etc.). The higher the glass-content, the stiffer the grating. As a result of the higher glass content, DeltaGrate HS Molded Fiberglass Gratings are the stiffest of any molded grating manufacturer.
