Fiberglass Glass is made into pieces in the form of fibers by preparation for use in different forms. Fiberglass, also known as fiberglass, is mainly used as insulation, cladding, surface coating and roofing raw material in the building and construction sector. The glass fiber materials produced by ZBREHON have provided housing construction materials for many construction companies in Asia, and have been welcomed by customers.
1.0 Fiberglass, the ideal material for the construction industry
Industrial fiberglass was included in our lives as the raw material for the first insulation materials. As insulation materials, insulation boards, roof panels and roof panels are mass-produced to make buildings a healthy living area.
Then a new generation of materials for fiberglass, roofing, facades and surface coatings gave life to glass-reinforced plastics. Fiberglass or fiberglass, GRP, glass reinforced panels as a semi-finished structure of this material are chemically and mechanically more durable and create an effective aesthetic image. FRP, developed with the contribution of fiberglass, is more and more widely used in the interior and exterior of buildings.
In other words, the material name referred to simply as fiberglass is glass-reinforced plastic. Fiber-reinforced materials are often simply referred to as fiberglass, meaning that the distinction between fiberglass and FRP has gradually disappeared. However, it should be remembered that technical language has different meanings. GRP incorporates glass fiber reinforced plastics, glass fibers and resins into our lives by using many different process technologies. GRP is widely used in the construction industry for the construction of panels for roofs, facades and wall coverings.
2.0 History of Fiberglass
In the last 25 years of this century, the building and construction sector has frequently proclaimed the name fiberglass, contrary to what is believed to be its history going back many years. Especially exquisite glass decorations have entered human life and history along with goblets, vases and various textile products. It is worth noting that even during the Renaissance, vases and goblets were decorated with glass cords. The industrial production of glass fibers first appeared in the 1930s. After that, both production, trade and export speeded up. The effective use of compressed air has a great impact on the production of glass fibers. This approach, which offers opportunities for mass production, is effective in the construction of fiberglass and has found applications in many more fields.
2.1 First use, roof panels
Fiberglass changed the DNA of the construction industry by becoming a staple item in FRP production. First, extend the condition of the FRP roof panel as an integral part of the building to each part of the building.
2.2 The use and advantages of FRP in the field of construction
The main material of FRP is the first choice in the field of construction because of its strength and productivity advantages from the beginning. FRP is used as an efficient insulation material due to its waterproof properties. The waterproofing properties of fiberglass materials are effectively used in exterior and roof shingle applications. Also, the advantage of this feature can be used in indoor installations and areas where water is widely used.
FRP is used for roof panels and walls. In this way, they are effective in terms of the aesthetics of the building.
In addition to the general structure of the building, it can be seen that fiberglass semi-finished products are effectively used in indoor use areas together with FRP. This semi-finished product can ideally use water without damaging the structure.
Due to the nature of the composite material formed from fiberglass and plastic resin, its aesthetic formability and durable construction has effectively become the most preferred interior design construction and coating material.
Due to fiberglass, glass fiber reinforced plastics are durable and flexible and can be used to protect concrete, steel and wood walls and their ability to form walls on their own.
Thanks to these properties, they can effectively protect structures from heat, corrosion, rust and impact. All these positive properties are made possible thanks to the elasticity of the new generation of resins to glass.
