Glass fiber is a mineral fiber and offers a lot of advantages for specific industrial end uses.
-Tensile strength :
at identical mass, glass fiber is twice as much resistant as steel. We have the possibility of orientating glass fiber in a direction for unidirectional fabricss or two directions. It confers to the fabric a good flexibility.
-Electrical insulation :
It is one of principal characteristics of glass fiber.
-Thermal insulation :
Glass fiber has a good resistance to hot temperatures.Its melting point is 800°C.The continuing exposure to 550°C temperature doesn't raise any concerns.
-Dimensional stability :
Glass fiber has a good stability with 3% of breaking extension. Glass fiber knows few extension and shrinkage in normal use conditions.
- Low absorption dampness : As Glass fiber is a mineral fiber, it doesn't absorb humidity.
-UV and chemical products resistance.
-Admission of a finishing treatment :
for coating, prepreg, lamination, glue-back.
- Economical task :
Glass fiber has a competitive cost regarding to properties that it confers. By the way, it is a good compromise between technical part of specification and economical part of product.
