Fiberglass is a composite material, which is widely used in the aerospace industry for its lightweight and eco-friendly nature. It is made of glass fiber reinforced plastics. Fiberglass is a fiber reinforced polymer, which is made of plastics and reinforced with glass fibers in a continuous stranded fashion. The plastic may be a thermoset plastic (mostly epoxy, polyester, or vinyl ester) or a thermoplastic. Glass fibers are made from various categories of glass, depending on the end-use. Glass fibers have silica or silicate along with some amount of oxides of calcium, magnesium, and boron. Fiberglass is lightweight and strong. It is not as strong as a carbon fiber but stronger than many metals. Its raw materials are comparatively cheaper than those of carbon fiber composites.
