Glass fiber is formed using a large number of fine glass filaments. There are two essential types of composite and insulated glass reinforced plastic. Glass reinforced plastic is mostly composed of silica that involves melting, forming, and staple process. Each piece of glass fiber is fine with small diameter and are woven to form flexible fabric. The procedure is repeated to create several layers and are then kept to dry. The final end material produced is known as glass reinforced plastic.

Fiber glass displays characteristics of resistant to weather, lightweight, suitable for surface assortment that account for its growing adoption across a number of applications. Due to these properties, fiber glass is increasingly becoming a material of choice for several new applications. Infrastructural development and increasing adoption of clean energy are stoking demand for fiber glass especially in emerging economies.
