Many goods that we use in our daily lives contain boron-based products. Textile fiberglass, which also contains boron products, is preferred by various industries as an alternative to wood or metal. Obtained by melting glass at high temperatures and then solidifying it through physical and chemical processes, textile fiberglass is a light and low-cost product that is resistant to tension, physical impact, and chemical reactions. Made to be a durable low-cost material with the help of boron products, fiberglass has a long lifespan that does not require expensive maintenance.
As the most frequently consumed material among those that are manufactured with boron-based products, fiberglass does not conduct heat or electricity. It is also highly resistant to fracture, expansion, bending, fission, corrosion, and scratches. It can adapt to difficult and diverse climatic conditions. Moreover, since fiberglass minimizes heat conductivity, it can be used as an insulation material by a great variety of sectors. Since it is lightweight, resistant to physical impact, and can be produced with low costs, fiberglass is widely preferred, for example, by the textile, construction, automotive, aerospace, household appliance, ornaments, military, and navigation industries.
“E-glass” is a type of textile fiberglass, which has low water solubility and a wide area of industrial use. Due to its strong structure and low fragility during the application phases, it comprises 90% of the world’s textile fiberglass consumption. Produced with boron-based products for greater durability of the main components, textile fiberglass has wide areas of use for the manufacturing of boats, skiing equipment, ships, fuel tanks, train wagons, roofing material, electronic circuit boards, and motor vehicles. Also preferred in the green energy industry, textile fiberglass plays an active role in the production of wind turbines.
