Glass fibre production

Glass fibre is made either from a direct melt process or a marble remelt process. Both start with the raw materials in solid form. The materials are mixed together and melted in a furnace. Then, for the marble process, the molten material is sheared and rolled into marbles which are cooled and packaged.

 

The marbles are taken to the fibre manufacturing facility where they are inserted into a can and remelted. The molten glass is extruded to the bushing to be formed into fibre. In the continuous filament process, after the fibre is drawn, a size is applied. The particular size applied often relates to end-use.

 

End uses for regular fibre glass are mats, insulation, reinforcement, heat resistant fabrics, corrosion resistant fabrics and high strength fabrics.
