Fiberglass

E- / ECR-Glass

E-Glass (E = electric): is considered to be the standard glass fiber

ECR-Glass (E-Glass corrosion resistant): fiber of very high corrosion resistance, free of boron and fluorine

Glass fibers are produced from the melt of a specific glass type (for example E-Glass). They consist of a uniform filament diameter and appear as continuous fiber or as staple fiber with certain length, using different sizings. Engineering plastics are aging, weather and chemically resistant and non-combustible, have a high elasticity modulus, which is improving the mechanical properties.
Engineering plastics belong to the most important engineering materials and have a wide range of application in aerospace industry, boat building, automotive, white goods, electrical, sport and leisure industry.

Milled glass fiber

Milled glass fiber – not just a filler

Properties:
Milled fiber redounds to the reduction of the shrinkage, increasing flame-retardance for better dispersion and excellent flowability of plastics granules.
Milled fiber is reproducible in the same quality (grit size and color) and thus it is not “milled filler” only.
We can offer milled fiber with or without silane-based surface treatment.

Specification:
Fiber length: 75-200 µ
Density: 0,2-1 g/cm³
Colour: white

Fields of application:
Compounds, Paints and coatings, gelcoats
