Fiber glass is a type of glass that is composed of fine, strand-like fibers. It is made by melting glass and then drawing it out into thin strands. Fiber glass is used in a variety of industries, including the windmill and hydro energy industries.
At MM Composite we use this material in many different productions and therefore, we have great experience within this. Fiberglass production typically begins with the gathering of raw materials. Silica sand, soda ash, limestone, and dolomite are pumped into a furnace where they are melted at high temperatures. Once the materials are melted, they are drawn out into thin strands and cooled. The resulting fiber glass strands are then spun into yarns, which can be used to create a variety of products.
Fiber glass is an essential material in the windmill industry, as it is used to create the blades for wind turbines. Fiber glass is also used in the hydro energy industry to make the turbine blades for hydroelectric power plants. Fiberglass blades are noticeably lighter than their metal counterparts, making them easier to transport and install. In addition, fiberglass is less likely to corrode or degrade over time.
Fiber glass is an extremely versatile material that can be used in a wide variety of applications. It is strong, durable, and resistant to heat and corrosion. Furthermore, it is low cost and light weight make, which it an ideal choice for us to use in windmills and hydro energy productions. As a result, fiberglass is less likely to corrode or degrade over time, making it a more durable option for use in these industries.
