Fiberglass Manufacturing

Growth of Fiberglass Manufacturing
The fiberglass market is expected to grow by 20 percent from 2020 to 2025. Factors such as
extensive use of fiberglass in the construction & infrastructure industry and the increased use of
fiberglass composites in the automotive industry is driving the growth of the fiberglass market.
Fiberglass is a high quality material for making modern, professional, and commercially viable
products because it is strong, durable, extreme weather resistant etc

Fiberglass can also be molded into any shape, so it is perfect for creating custom designs and due
to it’s lightweight property it is transportation friendly.

How is Fiberglass manufactured?
Fiberglass is manufactured from a mixture of silica and other materials such as recycled glass.
This mixture is heated and extruded into fine strands. These strands are then collected into
bundles called roving fiberglass which can either be used to create into a product or be woven
into fabrics to suit other applications. These fabrics include chopped mat unidirectional as well
as woven. There are a variety of manufacturing techniques in the production of fiberglass
products.The most common forms include pultrusion, gun roving, filament winding, molding etc.

Fiberglass and fiberglass-reinforced resin materials are manufactured into useful shapes by
coating several layers of fiberglass which are laid down inside the mold and bound with resin.A
polyester resin is brushed on to bind the layers of fiberglass to form an extremely strong and
smooth surface with the desired thickness.
