The six advantages of  fiberglass products

Fiberglass (also called fibreglass and glass fibre) is material made from extremely fine fibers of glass. It is used as a reinforcing agent for many polymer products; the resulting composite material, properly known as fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) or glass-reinforced plastic (GRP), is called "fiberglass" in popular usage. Glassmakers throughout history have experimented with glass fibers, but mass manufacture of fiberglass was only made possible with the invention of finer machine-tooling.

Compared to other products, products made of fiberglass have following advantages:

1.Light weight & high strength

The relative density is  1.5-2.0,Only 1/4 - 1/5 to that of the carbon steel. But the tensile strength of fiberglass is close to or even more than that of carbon steel.And  the strength of fiberglass could compare to that of alloy steel.

2.Good corrosion resistant performance

Fiberglass is the material which has good corrosion resistant performance. As it is resistant to air ,water ,acid ,alkali,salt with general concentration and various oil and solvents,it has been aplied to many areas of chemistry,replacing carbon steel,stianless steel ,wood ,non-ferrous metal and so on.

3.Good diaelectricity
Fiberglass is the good insulated material,it is used to make insulated products.It can keep good diaelectricity properites under high frequency.

4. good thermal properties

FRP thermal conductivity is low.It is 1.25 ~ 1.67kJ / (m·h·K)at room temperature, 1/100 to 1/1000 to that of metal .In stantaneous ultra high temperature case, it is the ideal thermal protection and resistant to ablative materials.

5.Easy to be designed

Fiberglass could be designed to a variety of structured products to meet the requirements.

6.Excellent technology

The process is simple, forming a prominent economic effects, especially for complex shape and difficult to forming a small number of products, but also to highlight its technology superiority.
