Boron is a component of many products we use in our daily lives. Reinforcement fiberglass or RFG, which generally contains boron products, acts as an alternative to wood and metal in many industrial uses. RFG, developed through solidification after melting glass at high temperatures, is a lightweight, low cost product that is high tensile, resistant to impacts, and resistant to chemical reactions. Borates allow for the transformation of RFG into an economical and durable material, which offers long-lasting solutions without the need for high-cost maintenance.
Reinforcement fiberglass, the most highly consumed borate enriched product, does not transmit heat or electricity and is highly resistant to cracking, expansion, bending, splitting, abrasion, and scratching. It easily adapts to extreme and different climatic conditions. Due to its highly effective minimization of heat transmission, it is used as an insulation material in many sectors. Its durability against physical impacts and lightweight, low cost production makes it widely preferred in textile, construction, automotive, space industry, house appliances, decoration products, military industry, marine etc fields.
“E-glass” is a reinforcement fiberglass which is widely used in the industrial field and is an industrial product with low solubility in water. With its low fragility and robust construction demonstrated in the application stages, it meets about 90% of fiberglass consumption of textile type in the world. Reinforcement fiberglass produced from boron products, which makes the main components more durable in many sectors, has a wide usage area in: sea boats, ski gears, ships, fuel tanks, train wagons, roofing materials, electronic circuit boards and automobile industry. Reinforcement fiberglass, which is also preferred in the Green Energy sector, plays an active role in the production of wind panels.
