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.

- S-Glass Fiber Composites (Fiber Type) Market Share Breakdown of Key Players: 2019 & 2025
S-Glass offers approximately twenty five percent greater strength than E-glass and has enhanced properties at higher temperatures.
[ClickPress, Thu Apr 19 2018] The report "High Performance Composites Market by Resin Type (Thermoset, Thermoplastic), Fiber Type (Carbon Fiber, S-Glass, Aramid Fiber) Application (Aerospace & Defense, Automotive, Pressure Vessel, Wind Turbine, Medical), Region - Global Forecast to 2022", The high performance composites market was valued at USD 23.50 Billion in 2016 and is projected to reach USD 33.33 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.0% from 2017 to 2022.
Different types of glass fibers are available, and E-glass and high-strength glass (known as S-glass in the USA, T-glass in Japan, and R-glass in Europe) fibers are commonly used [8, 9].
High performance fibers and yarns commonly used for ballistic protection are S-glass, aramids (e.g., Kevlar 29, Kevlar 49, Kevlar 129, Kevlar KM2, Twaron), highly oriented ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (e.g., Dyneema, Spectra), PBO (e.g., Zylon) which is a p-phenylene-2-6-benzobisoxazole, new polymeric fibers such as Polypyridobisimidazole (PIPD) (referred to as M5) etc.
Construction of this hull--in Fort Pierce, Florida--begins with a vacuum bagged PVC foam core and biaxial S-Glass knitted fabrics with two layers of Kevlar using epoxy based Vinyl ester resin.
