The glass fiber industry’s demand is expanding its boundaries and continuing to rise

Due mostly to its high performance and affordability, glass fiber continues to expand in downstream applications:

Density satisfies the criteria for lightness. Glass fiber has a lower density than common metals, and the lighter the mass per unit volume, the lower the density of the material. The requirements for stiffness and strength performance are satisfied by tensile modulus and tensile strength. Composite materials are more suited for high-pressure settings than conventional materials like steel and aluminum alloys because they may be designed to have higher stiffness and strength.

The largest and most fundamental application for glass fiber is in building materials.
The largest downstream use of glass fiber, or 34% of all uses, is in building materials. FRP is frequently used in a variety of building structures, including doors and windows, formwork, steel bars, and reinforced concrete beams. It uses resin as the reinforcement matrix and glass fiber as the reinforcing material.

Reinforcing materials for wind turbine blades: top products undergo continuous improvement, and the bar is high.

The main beam system, upper and lower skins, blade root reinforcement layers, etc. are all parts of the wind turbine blade construction. Resin matrix, reinforcing materials, adhesives, core materials, etc. are some examples of the raw materials. The major materials used as reinforcement are glass fiber and carbon fiber. Glass fiber (wind power yarn) is used in wind power blades as single- or multi-axial warp knitted fabrics, which primarily serve the roles of light weight and high strength performance, making up around 28% of the cost of wind power blades’ component parts.

The three primary industries of rail transit equipment, auto manufacturing, and other vehicle manufacturing are where glass fiber is most commonly used in the transportation sector. A key component of lightweight automotive materials is glass fiber composite. Due to their benefits of high strength, light weight, modularity, and low cost, glass fiber reinforced composite materials are widely utilized in automobile front-end modules, engine covers, cosmetic parts, new energy vehicle battery protection boxes, and composite leaf springs. In the context of “dual carbon,” lowering the quality of the entire vehicle has a substantial impact on lowering the fuel consumption of fuel vehicles and raising the cruising range of new energy vehicles.
