What is the fiberglass woven roving?
※Fiberglass woven roving are bidirectional fabric made by interweaving direct rovings, with excellent dimensional stability, suitable for reinforcing unsaturated polyester resins, vinyl resins, epoxy resins and phenolic resins, etc
※E-glass woven roving features non-inflammable, anti-corrosive, high temperature resistance, insulation and other excellent property, is widely used in chemical industry, boat and car building, construction and other industry.
What are the characteristics of fiberglass woven roving?
1. Flat fabric, uniform thickness, less filament, no stains debris and other defects
2.Good desperation, rapid resin impregnated speed
3.Glass fiber woven roving have high mechanical strength and less loss of strength in wet conditions.
What is the fiberglass woven roving used for?
※Woven roving is a high performance reinforced materials, widely used in hand lay-up and mechanical products such as vessels, containers, automotive parts, furniture and sports facilities.
Fiberglass and fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP)
※If you search for fiberglass products on Google, you may find that the terms "glass fiber" and "glass fiber reinforced plastic(FRP)" are used interchangeably. Frankly speaking, if you don't know what they are talking about, trying to distinguish between the two can be confusing. One way of thinking is that there is no difference between fiberglass and fiberglass. Those who follow this line of thinking claim that FRP is just a marketing term. A better way to describe a more advanced glass fiber. They think that fiberglass and fiberglass are actually the same.
※Fiberglass(American English) or Fibreglass (Commonwealth English) is a common fiber-reinforced plastic that uses Fiberglass. Fibers can be arranged randomly, pressed into thin sheets (called chopped felt), or woven into glass cloth. The plastic matrix may be a thermosetting polymer matrix -- usually based on a thermosetting polymer, such as epoxy, polyester or vinyl ester resins -- or thermoplastic.
What is fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP)?
Basically, FRP material consists of thermosetting resins and fiberglass. The combination of resin and glass fibers, makes the main ingredient of FRP products. The resin brings the environmental and chemical resistance to the product and is the binder for the glass fiber in the structural laminate. Based on the chemical and environmental circumstances (given by the customer or user), a resin type is selected.
Future development of glass fiber and FRP
Fiberglass and fiberglass products are increasingly used in all walks of life. Particularly in construction and manufacturing, fiberglass use has exploded because it is light but very strong. In fact, in some cases, it's seven times stronger than steel, and it's resistant to corrosion. So, you see, fiberglass and fiberglass are technically different, and when you take them apart, they are the future of industrial structures.
