Fiberglass 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 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.
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.
These finishes provide multiple benefits, some of which are listed below:
- Chemical resistant
- Acid resistant
- Alkali resistant
- Compatibility with epoxy, phenolic, and polyimide resin systems
- Water repellent
- Weaveset for added stiffness
- Heat cleaned and scoured for removal of binders
- Flame retardant
- “Painted look” for ceiling tiles
- Teflon®B for filtration fabric

Fiberglass 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.
