fi·ber·glass

(fī′bər-glăs′)
A material made up of very fine fibers of glass. Fiberglass is resistant to heat and fire and is used to make various products, such as building insulation and boat hulls. Because the fibers in fiberglass are capable of transmitting light around curves, fiberglass is an important component of fiber optics.

For nutrient analyses, water samples were filtered using 47-mm Whatman GF/C glassfiber filters (1.2 [micro]m pore size).
Solid aerosols were trapped on glassfiber filters with the collection efficiency of 90%.
Water samples were taken 50 cm below the water surface in 500 ml bottles, filtered through a Whatman 0.45 um glassfiber filter, transferred 500 ml polypropylene bottle, acidified with 5 ml of concentrated HNO3 to pH less than 2.0.
Seawater samples were taken 50 cm and 1 m below the water surface and filtered through a Whatman 0.45 um glassfiber filter.
GF filters feature a unique triple-layer construction made of glassfiber upstream fleece pleated together with heterogeneous double layer PES membranes for the highest total throughput performance and excellent clarification capability in critical pre-filtration applications.
More Audis in the future will be underpinned by the ASF structure, with materials such as magnesium alloy, glassfiber reinforced polymer (GFRP), and carbon-fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) joined to steel and aluminum using techniques such as bonding, flow drill screwing, and riveting as well as welding.
