Industry Overview:

When it comes to versatility, little can best fiberglass, which is used in building everything from pole vaulting poles to helicopter rotor blades. In and around your home, you can probably find it in your roofing laminate, insulation, septic tank, and swimming pool. It is used in protective sports gear, especially helmets and facemasks for high-impact positions like catchers and goalkeepers. It is used to create automobile bodies as well as individual automobile parts, bicycles, and aircraft.

Its properties, and the advantages those properties add over other materials, are what create fiberglass’ high demand. It combines both a light weight as well as a lasting durability. It is stronger than metal, and less expensive than similar materials like carbon fiber. It is moisture-resistant, corrosive agent resistant, and aerodynamic.
