The glass fiber industry will accelerate its penetration into emerging fields

    Compared with foreign countries, my country's glass fiber industry is still in the growth stage, and the proportion of demand in new energy and environmental protection fields such as wind power is significantly lower than the global average. However, with the adjustment of my country's economic structure, glass fiber is expected to accelerate the penetration in emerging fields, thus ushering in a new round of high-speed growth.

Application requirements of glass fiber

    Glass fiber is an inorganic non-metallic material with excellent performance. Compared with organic fiber, it has higher temperature resistance, non-combustibility, corrosion resistance, good heat insulation and sound insulation, high tensile strength, and good electrical insulation. The disadvantages are brittleness and wear resistance. poor. There are many kinds of glass fibers. At present, there are more than 5,000 varieties of carbon fibers in the world, with more than 6,000 specifications and uses.

    Glass fiber is usually used as a reinforcing material in composite materials, electrical insulation materials and thermal insulation materials, circuit boards and other fields of the national economy, the main fields are construction, transportation, industrial equipment, etc.

Specifically, in the construction industry, fiberglass is widely used in cooling towers, water storage towers, bathtubs, doors and windows, safety helmets and ventilation equipment in bathrooms. In addition, because glass fiber is not easy to stain, heat insulation and non-combustion, it is widely used in architectural decoration. Glass fiber is used in infrastructure, mainly in bridges, wharfs, trestle bridges and waterfront structures. Coastal and island buildings are susceptible to corrosion by seawater, which makes the best use of fiberglass materials.

    In terms of transportation, glass fiber is mainly used for transportation in the aerospace industry, automobile and train manufacturing industries, and can also be used to manufacture fishing boats. Its process is simple, anti-corrosion, low maintenance frequency and maintenance cost, and long service life.

In the machinery industry, polystyrene plastics reinforced with glass fibers have greatly improved mechanical properties, dimensional stability of products and thermal shock resistance, and are widely used in household appliance parts, casings, etc. Glass fiber reinforced polyoxymethylene is also widely used to replace non-ferrous metals for the manufacture of transmission parts, such as bearings, gears and cams.

    The chemical industry equipment is seriously corroded, and the appearance of glass fiber has brought bright prospects to the chemical industry. Glass fiber is mainly used to manufacture various chemical equipment and accessories such as tanks, tanks, towers, pipes, pumps, valves and fans. Glass fiber has corrosion resistance, high strength and long service life, but generally it can only be used in low pressure or atmospheric pressure equipment, and the temperature does not exceed 120 ℃. In addition, fiberglass has largely replaced asbestos in insulation, heat protection, reinforcement and filtration. At the same time, glass fiber has also been applied in many aspects such as new energy development, environmental protection, tourism and arts and crafts.
