Fiberglass Fabric

fiberglass fabricFiberglass fabric is the primary product manufactured by BGF Industries. BGF began weaving fiberglass fabric in 1941 and has continued to grow over the years to become one of the world's leading producers of fiberglass fabric. Fiberglass fabric is a strong and durable woven textile generally used for non-apparel applications.



Fiberglass Fabric Configurations

Fiberglass fabric is woven in various configurations and constructions from five basic weave patterns: plain, leno, satin, and basket. Fiberglass fabric is available in widths from ½” for narrow tape styles to 72” for broad woven fiberglass fabric. Fiberglass fabric is sold in rolls ranging in length from 50 yards to 3,000 yards. Prices for fiberglass fabric are calculated per linear yard according to width and quantity purchased.

Fiberglass Fabric Finishes

BGF's fiberglass fabric is available with a special finish applied or untreated. The finishing process adds value to the final product as well as performs a necessary function for further processing. A variety of finishes are available depending on the customer's resin system and processing requirements. BGF's finishes for fiberglass fabric are developed by our experienced team of research & development chemists and are proprietary in nature.

Fiberglass Fabric For Everyday Products

fiberglass fabricFiberglass fabric can be found in many products used every day, but we seldom realize they are present. Fiberglass fabrics are generally found hidden beneath composite materials or other layers or so that they are not visible to the eye, yet provide the support system that adds strength and stability to the product while not substantially increasing the weight. Fiberglass fabric is used in applications where high heat is present and strength and dimensional stability are important. Peak beneath a carpet tile, cut inside a computer circuit board, or examine a conveyor belt, and you'll see an example of an industrial fabric. When weight, strength, temperature, and durability are critical considerations, engineers turn to solutions from BGF's fiberglass fabric.
