Fiberglass Cloth (E-glass)

What is fiberglass cloth?


a.Fiberglass cloth is made of high strength E glass fiberglass yarn, It is divided into plain weave, twill weave or stain weave.


b.Fiberglass cloth is  composite fabric composed of glass strands of different sizes. After the user applies this material to a surface, he saturates the cloth  with polyester, epoxy and vinyl and is widely used in mica tape,fiberglass tape, aircraft industry, ship industry, chemical industry, military industry and sports goods, etc.

What is the difference between E-glass and C-glass?


E-glass fiber cloth, also known as E-glass, refers to glass fiber with low alkali metal oxide content.  The content of alkali metal oxides in the aluminum-glass composition shall not exceed 0.5%.  When selecting glass fiber raw yarn, use textile sizing agent (paraffin emulsion), the content of which is not more than 2%. E-glass of R2O content is less than 0.8%, aluminum - borosilicate component.  Its chemical stability, electrical insulation and strength are very good.  Mainly used as electrical insulation materials, electrical mica products, tire cord, linoleum and glass fiber reinforced materials.


C-glass of R2O in alkali fiber is 11.9% ~ 12.4%, which is a kind of alkali-calcium silicate component.  Due to its high alkali content, it cannot be used as electrical insulation material, but its chemical stability and strength are still good.  Generally used for latex fabric, woven base cloth, acid filter cloth, window screen materials, etc., can also be used for FRP materials whose electrical properties and strength requirements are not very strict.


What is  characteristic offiberglass cloth?


1.Fiberglass cloth has good film sticking property, complete and fast resin penetration, high production efficiency and high mechanical strength.


2.Consitent thickness and excellent surface treatment.


3.Anti-corrosion and electric insulation


4.Warp and weft yarn are parallel arrangement and flat,even tension


5.Excellent durability, consistent with the life cycle of electronic products


What is main application of fiberglass cloth?


1.Insulating Materials:Mica tape,Fiberglass tape


2.Electrical industry: FRP sheets,FRP tubes, printed circuit boards and electronic equipment shell.


3.Building materials: Column beam, fence, wave color tile, decorative plate, kitchen.


4.Machinery industry: aircraft structure, fan blades, firearms parts, artificial bones.


5.Sports goods: Surfboard,fishing rod, golf club , Tennis racket, bow and arrow, pole, bowling, swimming pool, snowboard.



What are the advantages and disadvantages of fiberglass reinforced plastic?



Fiberglass  reinforced plastic is on the basis of original pure plastic, adding glass fiber and other additives, so as to improve the scope of use of materials.Generally speaking, most of the glass fiber reinforced materials are used in the structural parts of the product, which is a kind of structural engineering materials

Advantages:



1.After fiberglass reinforcement, fiber glass is a high-temperature resistant material. Therefore, the heat resistance temperature of reinforced plastics is much higher than that before without glass fiber, especially nylon plastics;


2.After fiber glass reinforcement, because of the addition of fiber glass, the mutual movement between the polymer chains of plastic is limited, so the shrinkage rate of reinforced plastic decreases a lot, and the rigidity is greatly improved;


3.Fiber glass reinforced, reinforced plastic will not stress cracking, at the same time, the impact resistance of plastic improved a lot;


4.After fiber glass is reinforced, glass fiber is a high-strength material, which greatly improves the strength of plastics, such as tensile strength, compressive strength and bending strength.


5. After fiber glass reinforcement, due to the addition of glass fiber and other additives, the combustion performance of reinforced plastic decreases a lot, and most materials cannot ignite, which is a kind of flame retardant material.



Disadvantages:

1.After fiber glass reinforcement, it will become opaque due to the addition of glass fiber, which is transparent without glass fiber;


2.After fiber glass reinforced, the toughness of all plastics decreases while the brittleness increases;


3.After fiber glass  reinforcement, due to the addition of glass fiber, the melt viscosity of all materials increases, the fluidity becomes worse, and the injection pressure is much higher than that without glass fiber;


4.After fiber glass  reinforcement, due to the addition of glass fiber and poor fluidity, in order to normal injection molding, the injection temperature of all reinforced plastics should be increased by 10-30 ℃ than before without glass fiber;


5.Fiber glass  enhanced, due to the addition of glass fiber and additives, the hygroscopic performance of enhanced plastic is greatly strengthened, the original pure plastic does not absorb water will become water absorption, therefore, injection should be into drying.



How to store fiberglass cloth?


Fiberglass cloth  itself is very soft, that would make the product easy to fold, and sometimes some special use in the process of glass fiber cloth production to join a certain amount of glue, the fiber cloth will have certain softness, in the preservation will pay special attention to this kind of glass fiber cloth, not stacking too high,Nor can it be stored upright for a long time. Here, take a look at the storage method of fiberglass cloth.

1.The material of grid cloth is glass fiber material, more afraid of water, avoid moisture, so if in the rainy summer, it is recommended not to put the grid cloth in a wet place, not to put it in the open rain, otherwise the consequences are very bad!Some customers have a large demand for grid cloth, and there will be a large number of glass fiber grid cloth in the warehouse for a long time. Some of the grid cloth is soaked in water due to some objective reasons (such as the low terrain of the warehouse), which leads to serious consequences, namely, the grid cloth is soaked.Therefore, it is recommended that you do not put it on low ground!Do not make the mesh cloth soaked.


2.Most of the fiberglass cloth is white, it is easy to dirty, so try to use plastic packaging to directly pack the mesh cloth, with white woven bag, not only to ensure the beauty of the product, plastic and can make the air does not enter the inside, so that the product is not affected by moisture.
