Glass fibre

Glass fibres are thin threads obtained from molten glass (glass filaments).

Several thin filaments are collected in a strand. Those strands are bundled to a roving with different thicknesses depending on its usage.

SINOI Glass fibre

Glass fibres are resistant to ageing, exposure to weather conditions and chemicals. They are also incombustible and light weighted. The high modulus of elasticity is used for improving mechanical characteristics of synthetics.

Since glass fibres are very notch-sensitive they are treated with a so called "sizing agent" during the manufacturing process, which means that they are coated with a chemical mixture ("size").

In order to produce fibre-reinforced plastic material, the rovings are used for the production of various types of woven glass fabrics (glass cloth or woven rovings) depending on the material requirements.
