Glass yarn is manufactured with continuous filament, low alkali, “E” glass yarn
and are woven on high technology shuttle-less looms coated with crylic acid
copolymer liquid, to set the weave that gives the fabric good dimensional stability.
Glass is an inherently inert substance. It does not rot; it does not decay; it does
not absorb moisture as, for example, do natural fibers such as cotton or Hessian. It will also not leach out volatile solvent oil from the medium it is reinforcing.
It is unaffected by microorganisms, or by the effects of elements. Glass fiber
has high tensile strength and will not stretch, thus significantly improving the
life of the protective coating by giving much higher resistance to cracking
than an un-reinforced product.
