Fiberglasses Have Shown Immense Use In Modern Technology

Fibreglass, also known as glass fibre, is made up of fine glass fibres. It is lightweight but has immense strength to withstand loads easily. It is made by combining different materials like limestone,silica sand, and soda ash. Waste glasses are used as raw materials, so all of these ingredients are measured accurately to produce perfect fiberglass (ไฟเบอร์กลาส, which is the term in Thai).

What Are The Characteristics Of These Glasses?

Firstly, these fibreglass glasses are extremely light weight but have extreme durability, which results in reinforcing them in different activities.

Secondly, these super lightweight glasses are corrosion resistant, so they can withstand every weather condition and all chemicals or salt water.

Thirdly, fibreglasses are also used in electric circuits or glasses as they are excellent electrical insulators.

Where Are They Applied?

  1. Fiberglass is used, especially in creating roofs and construction sites. Its desirable strength is why it is mostly used in building processes.
  2. In the aerospace department, fiberglass is used to run aircraft at high speed. These materials need to be strong enough.
  3. If we want to talk about the marine department, it has also been used to make the body of any boat or deck. Its lightweight and corrosion-free properties are of great use here.

What Are Its Advantages?

Fiberglass is much cheaper than other high-performance materials, so it is a cost-effective solution for many applications. This particular glass can be easily customized to different shapes and structures, and it is flexible enough to be fitted in other applications. It is also adaptable to various environments and can withstand heat and cold weather.


This particular glass is not breakable but can form cracks. Most importantly, it cannot be recycled as we cannot separate the glass fibres from the resin mix, so it can be a big environmental issue.

What Are The Different Types Of Fibreglass?

  • E- Glass fibre
  • D- Glass fibre
  • R- glass fibre
  • Advantex glass fibre
  • ECR Glass fibre

There are different varieties of glass fibre, each with unique properties. E-fiber is mostly used in electrical appliances as it is lightweight and resistant to heat. D-fiber is suitable for cookware, electrical cables, and electrical appliances. Adventex is acid-corrosion resistant, so it is used in the mining and oil industries as it contains a high quantity of calcium oxide.


 Fibreglass is used to make glasses so that they are not easily broken. Many of us have the wrong concept of whether fibreglass and carbon fibre are the same, but these two are entirely different. Carbon fibre is made of carbon and is not cheap like fibreglass. Fibreglass is accustomed to every appliance because it is durable, heat—or cold-resistant, and anti-corrosive.
