Glass fibers are formed from complex mixtures of silicates and borosilicates in the form of mixed magnesium, aluminum, sodium,calcium, potassium and other salts.
The most commonly used types are E-type and C-type fibers.
In the past, the fiber is used for decorative purposes, today it is used satisfy the requirements of industry.

It is used for;
Fire extinguishers,
Fire protection fabric production.

The fibers are thin and transparent.
The surface of fiber is smooth.
The value of elongation at break of the fiber is around 2%.

Non creasing
Not flexible
High strength
Resistant to moisture
Resistant to fire
Poor thermal and electrical conductivity
Resistant to chemical actions
Resistant to high temperature
Resistant to microorganisms
