Industry Overview:

When it comes to versatility, you have to go a long way to beat fiberglass, which is used in building everything from skateboards to bridges. It’s lightweight, it improves aerodynamics, and it adds durability and low-cost reinforcement. Combined with the right resin, it provides a great payoff in terms of increased strength.

Of course, there are more ways to make a great thing even greater, and that’s true for fiberglass and the opportunities it presents for people who know how to get the most from science and technology. Can we find ways to increase recycling of fiberglass? How can we make it more moisture-resistant and boost its tensile strength?
