Fiberglass yarn can possess high strength and resistance to heat and chemicals.

fibreglassOne may argue that fiberglass, a silica based material, is a natural fiber, but fiberglass must be highly processed before it can be useful as a yarn. Fiberglass is very brittle and difficult to work with. It does not absorb water and has very low elongation.

Fiberglass yarn offers:
  • High strength (when the fibers are in an oriented direction)
  • Heat resistant
  • Chemical resistant
  • High (2.48 to 2.54 g/cc) densities
