Fiberglass glasses are formed into pieces in the form of fibers by preparing them for use in different forms. Fiberglass, which is also described as glass fiber, is mostly used as insulation, cladding, surface coating and roofing raw material in construction and construction sector.
Fiberglass, Next Generation Material of Construction Industry
Industrial glass fiber has been included in our life as the raw material of the first insulation materials. As insulation material, the insulation panels, roof panels and roof plates have been produced in large scale and have enabled the buildings to be healthy living areas.
Then the new generation material of glass fiber, roof, facade and surface coating gave life to glass reinforced plastics. Glass fiber or fiberglass, GRP, glass reinforced panels as a semi-finished structure of this material chemically and mechanically much more durable and has created an effective aesthetic image. The FRPs developed with the contribution of fiberglass are becoming more and more widely used in the interior and exterior of buildings.
In other words, the name of the material which is abbreviated as fiberglass is the glass-reinforced plastics. Fiber-reinforced materials are commonly referred to as abbreviated fiberglass, meaning that the difference between glass fiber and FRP has gradually disappeared. However, it should be kept in mind that there are different meanings in technical language. GRP has been incorporated into our lives by combining glass reinforced plastics, fiberglass and resin using many different process technologies. GRP is used extensively in the construction sector for the construction of panels used in roof, facade and wall coverings.
History of Fiberglass
In the last quarter of the century, the building and the construction sector, the name of the fiberglass often announces, contrary to what is believed to have a history dating back many years. Especially fine glass decorations have entered the human life and history with goblet, vase and various textile products. It is remarkable that even in the Renaissance period, vases and goblets were decorated with glass ropes. The industrial production of fiberglass was first seen in the 1930s. Afterwards, it was accelerated to see both production and trade and export goods. The effective use of compressed air has a great influence on the production of fiberglass. This method, which provides mass production opportunity, is effective in the construction of glass fiber and has been used in more sectors.
First Use, Roof Panels
Fiberglass has changed the building sector up to its genes by being the main item of production of FRPs. First of all, the condition of being a component of building with the roof panels of the FRPs was extended to all parts of the buildings.
Use and Advantages of Fiberglass in Construction Area
The main material of Fiberglass FRP 's is preferred in the construction area due to the fact that the strength and productivity advantages come from the beginning. FRP is used as a highly effective insulation material due to its waterproof properties. The waterproof feature of fiberglass material is effectively used in exterior and roof panel applications. Again, the benefits of this feature are utilized in indoor installations and in areas where water is used extensively.
FRPs are used in roof panel and wall cladding. In this way, they have been effective in the aesthetics of buildings.
In addition to the general architecture of the buildings, it is seen that fiberglass semifinished products are used together with FRPs effectively in indoor use areas. The ideal use of water without damaging the structure is possible with this semi-finished product.
Due to the nature of the composite material formed by glass fiber and plastic resin, its aesthetic formability and durable structure has been effective in being the most preferred interior design structure and coating material.
Fiberglass reinforced plastics due to glass fiber are durable and flexible and they are used to protect the walls of concrete, steel and wooden walls as well as their ability to form walls on their own.
Thanks to these properties, they provide effective protection of the structure against heat, corrosion, rust and impacts. All these positive features have been achieved thanks to the resilience of the new generation resins to the glass.
The fire resistance of GRP panels such as firepan is also highly effective in building buildings as safe areas. The FRPs function very effectively in making all buildings ready for use as a healthy and safe living space.
In addition, as in Polser AMB, which is a patented product of Polser A.S.
Polser AMB product has been developed with nano technology which can make a GRP panel 99.99% antimicrobial. is a unique product patented worldwide. For hygienic panels for GRPs, products that have many advantages compared to their counterparts are reliable, healthy and never carcinogenic substances.
The use of fiberglass reinforced plastics with non-complicated application techniques facilitates the widespread use.
Of course, as with every industrial product, it is important to produce and apply the right techniques to take full advantage of this product offering great advantages. It is not possible to expect the same performance from each company's fiberglass product. Polser Inc. is the world's leading FRP company in fiberglass processing. Each batch guarantees the same high standards in production.
