Properties & Applications of Different Fiberglass Supplies, Fairbanks, Alaska

Fiberglass is a type of plastic that’s reinforced by glass fibers. The glass used to make a particular sheet of this material may vary, depending on its intended use. With their wide range of benefits and properties, fiberglass supplies can actually be used in many different applications. Consider the guide below, which outlines some important properties of the material and how it can be applied.

A Guide to Fiberglass Supplies: Properties & Applications

Resistant to Corrosion

Fiberglass resists the effects of water, insects, heat, and other natural processes that may cause it to corrode. As a result, it has become an ideal material for many industries that require supplies to face such conditions. For instance, it can be used in the paper industry, as this chemical property makes it useful in the pulp-making process.

Gritty Surface

This is often used in manufacturing businesses, particularly when water, hydraulic fluids, or oils are present. With so many slippery chemicals, workers are at risk of falling. However, fiberglass mats can help prevent this from happening.


Fiberglass supplies are also very strong, despite their light weight. As a result, they are ideal for applications that require them to stand up to a significant amount of force. For instance, many car parts are made from fiberglass, as well as military aerospace parts.
