The major advantage of reinforced polymers is it allows you to tailor the material for maximum performance at
minimum costs. Glass and carbon reinforcements can increase impact strength, improve fracture toughness,
Glass reinforced polymers are noted for high strength to weight ratios, dimensional stability, resistance to heat,
and corrosion resistance. There is a broad selection of fiber types offering a wide range of cost performance
benefits. Glass is the most widely used reinforcement for plastic products. Glass fiber comes in different
lengths and surface treatments for different applications.
Carbon Fibers posses a range of stiffness unequaled by any other family of materials. These fibers posses the
electrical, thermal, and chemical properties of carbon. Substantial weight savings are possible when carbon
fiber is substituted for more conventional material.
