Glass fiber fabrics

Fiberglass is an attractive, lightweight (when compared to non composite products), durable material. When fiberglass is impregnated with epoxy resin, the resulting composite has high tensile strength and is stronger than steel on an equal weight basis. This high strength for its relatively low weight is the primary reason why fiberglass composites became so popular, and are widely used for many decades now. Glass fiber can be combined with other fiber material such as Kevlar/Aramid creating a hybrid fabric. This way the properties of the composing fibers are enhanced by synergy.
