Glass fibre can be used for a variety of applications when certain characteristics are needed. Fabrication of glass fibre with resins into composites covers wide range of different application for the world market. Mostly E- or ECR-glass fibres are produced into chopped strand mat, nonwoven tissue, direct roving, chopped fibres and assembly rovings.
SIZING AND BINDER CHEMISTRY
Combining fibres with sizing and binders give the fibers needed qualities and characteristics to interact with the resins for the final application. Sizing and binder chemistry is one of the most important parts of the process of producing glass or basalt fibres.
Made from volcanic rock, basalt offers better physical and mechanical properties than fibreglass in certain applications. With lower cost than carbon fibre, basalt offers intriguing option for many applications. Challenges of continuous production limit usage in the world market.
