Glass Fiber And Carbon Fiber, How To Choose The Material You Need?

Now most people may think that carbon fiber is better than glass fiber in all aspects. In fact, they have their own advantages. In terms of electrical performance, carbon fiber is a good conductive material, while glass fiber is an insulating material.  Soaring Blue Whale will take off to tell you to choose products of different materials according to your needs.

1.Glass Fiber

Glass fiber is a kind of inorganic non-metallic materials with excellent performance. There are many kinds of them. The advantages are good insulation, strong heat resistance, good corrosion resistance and high mechanical strength, but the disadvantages are brittleness and poor wear resistance.

The glass fiber reinforced resin matrix composite material has good mechanical properties, and at the same time is an excellent electrical insulating material, which is used to manufacture insulating parts of various meters, motors and electrical appliances, and can still maintain good dielectric properties under high frequency. Electrical properties and electromagnetic wave penetration, suitable for making radomes. Glass fiber can also be used as a reinforcing material to make products such as reinforced plastics or reinforced rubber, reinforced plaster and reinforced cement. Coating glass fiber with organic materials can improve its flexibility, and can be used to make packaging cloth, window screening, wall covering, covering cloth, protective clothing, and insulation and sound insulation materials. Another feature of glass fiber is that it is cheap and can be mass produced.

2. Carbon Fiber

Carbon fiber is a high-strength and high-modulus fiber with a carbon content of more than 90%. High temperature resistance ranks first among all chemical fibers. It is made of acrylic fiber and viscose fiber as raw materials, after high temperature oxidation and carbonization. It is a new material with excellent mechanical properties. It has the inherent characteristics of carbon materials and the soft and processability of textile fibers. It is a new generation of reinforcing fibers.

Carbon fiber is "flexible on the outside and rigid on the inside". Its quality is lighter than that of metal aluminum. It is only one-fourth of steel, but its strength is nine times that of steel. It is resistant to strong acids and alkalis, high modulus, ultra-low resistance, fatigue resistance, wear resistance, The characteristics of high temperature and radiation absorption are not only used in national defense and military industries, but also used in the reinforcement of industrial and civil buildings, railway highway bridges, tunnels, chimneys, tower structures, etc. In railway buildings, large roof systems and sound insulation walls There will be very good applications in the future. Carbon fiber composite materials are mainly used in the aviation and aerospace industries; it can also be used in sports equipment, such as tennis rackets, snowboards, racing cars, rowing boats, etc.; currently, it is also used to manufacture the main bearing components of automobiles, such as spring steel plates, transmission shafts, etc.; It is also very helpful for medical treatment. The carbon fiber composite medical bed has a high X-ray transmittance, which can reduce the radiation damage of X-rays to patients.
