fiberglass is a form of fiber-reinforced plastic where glass fiber is the reinforced plastic. This is the reason perhaps why fiberglass is also known as glass reinforced plastic or glass fiber reinforced plastic. The glass fiber is usually flattened into a sheet, randomly arranged or woven into a fabric. According to the use of the fiberglass, the glass fibers can be made of different types of glass.Materials with high-temperature insulation provide an effective thermal barrier for industrial gaskets. Since fiberglass is durable, safe and offers high thermal insulation, fiberglass is one of the widely preferred materials in industrial gaskets. They not only provide a better insulation but also help in protecting the machinery, conserving the energy and ensure the safety of the professional workforce. This is the reason perhaps why fiberglass is widely used in industries given below:

  • Beverage industry: Fiberglass grating is used in many areas like bottling lines and in brew houses.I always understood the benefits of CNC routing, but it wasn’t until I spent hours cutting, grinding and sanding pieces of carbon fiber, that I realized how useful this tool really was. Today, CNC routing is a part of the daily workflow at STEVS. Here are 6 things that are important to know about carbon fiber CNC routing.

    1. Carbon fiber is the stiffest and lightest material available for 2D parts

    What is Pultrusion?

    Pultrusion converts reinforced fibers and liquid resin into a fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) via a pulling method. The fibers are saturated by being pulled through a resin bath, then shaped, pulled through a heated steel die, and shaped again.High-strength- When compared on a kilogram for kilogram basis, glass fiber composites have higher strength than metals. Pultruded products are the strongest on the axis (lengthwise) direction. The orientation and format can be varied to optimize the required strength of the final product and give extra strength to highly stressed areas.
