glass fibre Eng.
Properly known as fiber-reinforced polymer, it is melted glass drawn into thin fibres some 0.005-0.01 mm in diameter. The fibres may be spun into threads and woven into fabrics which are then impregnated with resins to give a material that is both strong and corrosion resistant for use in car bodies and boat building, heat-resistant fabrics and insulations.
