E-Glass Fabrics – Aerospace Applications

For many years, fabrics woven from E-Glass Yarns have been successfully engineered into aerospace applications. The high tensile strength to its relatively low weight, along with its excellent flame resistances, makes it an ideal component to contribute to safety and low weight requirements in the transportation industry.
