Construction

Building construction and construction sites are filled with fiberglass products. The light weight of fiberglass helps to make tools such as ladders, shovels and tool housings easier to transport. The corrosion-resistant properties make fiberglass an ideal material for bathtubs and shower stalls. Because it is extremely thin and pliable, fiberglass makes excellent insect and solar screens. And because it is fire resistant, it is used in wall board, gypsum board and roofing shingles. In many senses, it offers an attractive and eco-friendly alternative to wood, steel and aluminum.

Applications:

  • Windows and railings
  • Gypsum board
  • Tubs and showers
  • Roofing shingles
  • Insect and solar screens
  • Wall coverings
