Characteristics of Fiberglass Panels

time:2022-11-24

Fiberglass is a new type of synthetic material. Like other composite materials, it consists of two parts: one part is called reinforcement material, which plays a core role in the composite material; the other part is called matrix material, which plays a bonding role. The reinforcement in fiberglass is glass fiber, an inorganic material that is twice as strong as high-strength steel. There are two production processes for fiberglass sheet products, one is machine-made pultrusion production, and the other is the production by hand lay-up.
