High-Modulus High-Strength Fiber Glass Materials
High-modulus high-strength (HMHS) glass fibers are a unique reinforcing material for high-load structures.
As for their physical and mechanical characteristics, glass reinforced plastics (GRP) based on HMHS fibers are superior to those GRPs reinforced with traditional alumoborosilicate fibers (E-glass). The advantages of the HMHS fibers are explained by their optimum chemical composition.
High elasticity and strength properties of composites based on the HMHS fibers determined their wide application in aerospace, automotive and shipbuilding industries.
