Fibreglass is a more cost-effective alternative to Carbon Fibre. Fibreglass’ flexibility allows it to be moulded into complex shapes and used in a variety of ways, such as the manufacture of boats, aircraft and automotive vehicles.
What is Fibreglass?
Fibreglass is a fibre-reinforced plastic, that is cheaper and more flexible than carbon fibre, and can be moulded into complex shapes. It is also stronger than many metals by weight and is non-magnetic and non-conductive.
What is Fibreglass used for?
Fibreglass is extremely flexible and can be made into a variety of shapes. It is also a low-cost material which allows it to be used in a variety of industries. Fibreglass is an immensely versatile material due to its light-weight, strength and flexibility. It has a wide range of uses in a number of industries, including construction, aerospace, automotive and marine.
Which tools should you use for Fibreglass?
Fibreglass is best cut by rotary tools. Depending on which CNC machine suits your requirements, either the Electric Rotary Wheel Tool, compatible with both the Genesis-V and Mastercut CNC machines, or the Orion Rotary Wheel Tool can be used to cut fibreglass.
