Glass fiber is formed into filaments with a diameter of several to around a dozen micro meters and feature high mechanical strength. Such fiber is used to produce outstanding composite materials. Worldwide, NEG provides glass fiber for reinforcement of a variety of materials, ranging from plastics to concrete.
Chopped Strands for Function Plastics
Chopped strands are glass strands cut into short pieces. Combined with high-function plastics, they form fiber-reinforced thermoplastic (FRTP) products, which are widely used in automobiles, electric/electronic parts, and other products.
Roving for Reinforced Plastic
Strands of glass fiber are brought together to form roving, which is used in various fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) products, such as housing equipment and automobile parts.
Alkali Resistant Glass Fiber
Alkali resistant glass fiber (ARG fiber), with its exceptional chemical resistance, is used to reinforce cement and other alkali materials and to limit crack propagation in mortar and concrete. It is also used to reinforce FRP and FRTP for chemically resistant applications.
