We produce chopped glass fiber strands from two types of glass: E-glass with a thermal resistance of up to 600°C and SiO2-glass with a thermal resistance of up to 1000+°C. Each glass type has its own properties, hence also application areas.
Chopped strands are short glass fiber strands that retain the initial structure of the yarn also when chopped. The length of the chopped strand is 3, 6, 9 to 12 mm, while the filament diameter is 6, 9, 11 to 13 μm.
Chopped fiberglass strands are commonly used to manufacture fiberglass chopped strand mats (CSM), used as an insulation filler, applied as a concrete cement reinforcement.
