Fiberglass tape is composed of twisted strands of fiberglass woven at right angles to one another. It also has woven edges to prevent unraveling.
General Properties of Fiberglass Cloth
High Tensile Strength:
Fiberglass cloth is one of the strongest textile fibers, having greater specific tensile strength than steel wire of the same diameter, at a lower weight.
Fiberglass cloth has low elongation under load, generally 3% or less. Glass fibers produce fabrics with excellent dimensional stability under various types of conditions.
High Heat Resistance:
Fiberglass cloth has excellent heat resistance at relatively low cost. Fiberglass cloth retains approximately 50% of room temperature tensile strength at 700°F (371°C); approximately 25% at 900°F (482°C); with a softening point of 1555°F (846°C) and a melting point of 2075° F (1121 °C).
Fiberglass cloth is composed of inorganic materials, and are noncombustible, a natural choice where flammability is of concern.
Good Thermal Conductivity:
The rapid heat dissipation of fiberglass cloth is particularly important in electrical insulation applications.
Good Chemical Resistance:
Like glass itself, fiberglass cloth is highly resistant to attack by most chemicals.
Outstanding Electrical Properties:
Fiberglass fabric withstands high temperature and has low moisture regain. Along with its high dielectric strength and low dielectric constant, glass is of major importance and usefulness in the electronics.
Being inert, fiberglass cloth is unaffected by sunlight, fungus or bacteria.
Fiberglass cloth is lower in cost than many other fabrics for similar applications.
Fiberglass cloth is utilized in many industries for a wide range of applications such as thermal insulation, electrical insulation in the electronics industry, and even as a component in armor plating on U.S. Military vehicles, helmets, and aircraft carrier decks. Light-weightfiberglass cloths also provide a smooth finish and are ideal for producing a waterproof layer over wood or other surfaces, such as is needed in boat repair and other marine applications.
Fiberglass cloth provides exceptional strength and durability when layered with a resin to form a hardened composite structure.
