Fiberglass fabric is a flexible mesh made from spun-glass fibers that are woven into a pliable, cloth-like material. Fiberglass fabric is rarely used alone. It is normally found layered with resins or other materials, where it provides a flexible framework, as well as a fireproof and waterproof barrier.
Fiberglass is a versatile and cost-effective material used in an endless variety of industrial and commercial products. Since it is made from glass, it is naturally resistant to heat, fire, water, chemicals, pests, and bacteria. It is lighter and more flexible than other types of mesh products such as steel, but still retains high tensile strength, which means it can hold up under pressure without breaking. In fabric form, fiberglass has the added benefit of conforming to odd-shaped angles and curves, such as those found on a surfboard or a snowmobile. In these applications, the fiberglass fabric provides a framework to which a liquid resin is bonded, providing strength, form and durability to the end product.
