Fiberglass is an irreplaceable material in many areas like building, boat, and aircrafts-making, for repairing houses, roofing, and many others. This material is very light, durable, and strong which allows us to make use of it for different purposes. In addition, it can be twisted in different shapes, and that’s a huge benefit, too.

Probably, the only disadvantage of this miraculous material is that it is very hard to get off the skin once it gets stuck to it.

Can fiberglass be applied in construction? Of course, it can! 

 

The Benefits Of Fiberglass Use In Building Area

 

Those who are not familiar with the topic or with the area of building/construction will definitely be surprised when they learn that such a super light and so seemingly fragile material as fiberglass is used for…building roofs! Well, for making roof panels, to be precise.

 

Why was it chosen for such a specific area of use? In fact, everything is about this material’s characteristics.

 

  • Fiberglass is light that allows working with it much easier than with tiles, for instance, or other roofing materials
  • It is very durable and strong. It is actually the same strong as steel!
  • This material is resistant to corrosion which is a huge advantage for any external  works (especially roofing)
  • It is resistant to aggressive chemicals and liquids
  • It provides electrical insulation
  • It requires minimal maintenance
  • And finally, fiberglass is extremely easy to work with

 

Due to all these qualities, using fiberglass panels is one of the most popular methods in exterior and roof panel applications. Such cover protects any surface from corrosion, heat, moisture, rust, and many other harmful impacts. Even as a fire-protecting material, fiberglass is far more efficient (for example, compared to plastic) making the place where it is used a safe to live area.

Also, this material is widely applied in wall cladding, again, being many times more usable compared to some other materials. It is especially popular for protecting the walls of concrete, as well as steel and wooden walls. In addition, fiberglass is able to form walls itself.

Another external area of fiberglass use is tenso-structures. If fiberglass is paired with fabric, it can become a great help when erecting shades in public places, let’s say, or exterior facade skins. It is able to provide the whole structure with proper rigidity while remaining light at the same time. In addition, it doesn’t tend to decay or disintegrate like gypsum.

This super material even found its place in construction methods! 

Even certain indoor works go for it when the conditions of exploitation require that, for instance, for the various interior design purposes or as a coating material.

 

The only disappointing issue about this wonderful material is that fiberglass can’t be touched with bare hands. It can be dangerous to our skin causing inflammation, various irritations, and even painful reactions.

That is why, when working with it, it is strictly required to wear protective gloves and make sure that all your arms are covered with long-sleeved clothing, and your face and eyes are also protected to prevent accidentally breathing some particles of it in.
