S-glass and High Strength Glass offers improved properties over traditional E-glass.
S-glass differs in formulation from more commonly used E-glass and features improved mechanical properties. This high strength glass fiber is used where increased performance requirements are required. These fibers are lower in density than E-glass, producing a lighter laminate with higher stiffness. S-glass produces enhanced mechanical properties compared to E-glass and with lower cost than aramid or carbon fiber.
