Material is different, fiberglass is glass drawing and then made into a variety of products, such as fiberglass cloth, fiberglass cotton, can be used for FRP production, heat preservation, fire prevention, heat insulation, and other aspects, such as oven, refrigerator appliances. It can also be used for sports equipment, such as golf clubs, skateboards, surfboards, and so on.
Carbon fiber, which is carbon yarn, can be woven into various specifications, such as 1.5K, 3K, etc., which can be used for the production of various plates and profiles. Can also be used as a lot of high-grade boxes, paddles, piano cases, auto parts, and so on.
Glass fiber (formerly known as Glass fiber or Fiberglass ) is a kind of inorganic nonmetallic material with excellent performance. It has a wide variety of advantages, such as good insulation, high heat resistance, good corrosion resistance, and high mechanical strength, but its disadvantages are brittleness and poor wear resistance. It is made of glass ball or waste glass as raw material by high-temperature melting, drawing, yarn, weaving, and other processes, the diameter of the single wire is several microns to more than 20 meters microns, equivalent to a hair of 1/20-1/5, each strand of fiber filament is composed of hundreds or even thousands of single wire. Glass fiber is usually used as a composite material in the strengthening material, electrical insulation materials and thermal insulation materials, electric subgrade board and other areas of the national economy.
Carbon fiber (CF) is a new type of fiber material with high strength and high modulus with more than 95% carbon content. It is made of organic fibers such as flake graphite microcrystalline along the axial direction of fiber stacking, after carbonization and graphitization processing and obtained microcrystalline graphite material. Carbon fiber is “soft outside and strong inside”, lighter than metal aluminum, but its strength is higher than steel, and it has corrosion resistance and high modulus characteristics. It is an important material in the defense industry and civil industry. It not only has the inherent characteristic of carbon material but also has the softness and processability of textile fiber, so it is a new generation of reinforced fiber.
