The Greatness of Fiberglass

Fiberglass Products

Fiberglass is a great material to use in many applications because to its durability and its light weight. Today the fiberglass industry is rapidly growing because of its unique versatile ability. Many boats are made out of fiberglass because of how light the material is. The only reason a boat floats is because of the displacement and fiberglass helps keep a lot of that extra weight to a minimum. Fiberglass has an amazingly smooth finish and has a very attractive look. If it gets scratched or damaged the fixing process is not too difficult to get repaired or even repair at home if the damage is not too incredibly bad. It is also a material that is very easy to clean. Any wax, polish or cleaner can keep fiberglass looking like new if it gets dirty.

Fiberglass Fabrication Companies can shape and cut fiberglass in many which ways to make it into objects that we can use. There are seven different types of fiberglass that is used on today’s market. There is E-glass, A-glass, E-CR glass, C-glass, D-glass, R-glass and S-glass. Each one of these has a unique quality and the intent of the final product decides which one of these types will be used. E-glass is the most general type used when the fiberglass intent is to reinforce plastic. A-glass contains only a small amount of boron oxide. E-CR-glass has the highest acid resistance above all others. C-glass is chosen for the use of glass staple fibers. D-glass has the highest dielectric constant in its contents. R-glass has the highest mechanical properties and S-glass has the highest tensile strength. This gives us a well rounded bunch and a variety to choose from for any fiberglass project or creation.
