Specialty Glass Compositions
Glass fibers fall into two categories: general purpose and special purpose. The most widely used glass fiber types are general purpose, also known as E-Glass fibers. Overall E-Glass offers good mechanical, electrical and corrosion properties.
As the possible market applications of composites continue to grow, our customers have faced challenges to meet the demands related to performance, cost, reliability and durability, as well as the increased focus on sustainability and environmental stewardship.
- The length requirements of wind blades continue to grow.
- Power plants want maximum performance and lifetime from pipes and tanks in harsh conditions and environments.
- Demands for fuel economy with sacrifice of performance are bringing changes to the automotive industry.
- Continued advancements in technology require the signal speed of circuit boards to be more robust than ever before.
