Asbestos fibres

Asbestos fibres Asbestos fibres are modified natural fibres. Long regarded as a wonder material for its good thermal isolation and electrical insulation abilities, it has been recognized as a dangerous substance because of its tendency to cause lung cancer. It differs...
Basalt fibre

Basalt fibre

Basalt fibres Basalt fibres made from rock solidified from volcanic lava are suggested by some as the alternative to glass. Until recently, they were used solely in the form of basalt ‘wool’ for thermal insulation purposes, however, new technology open for...
Carbon fibres

Carbon fibres

Carbon fibres The use of carbon fibres has only become widespread over the past couple of decades or so, but their growth has been rapid since their inception. The complex series of processes and the inert atmospheres needed for carbon fibre production tend to make...
Ceramic fibre

Ceramic fibre

Ceramic fibres Ceramics are the latest in a series of new materials earmarked for use as fibres. Many of them are oxides, with similar drawbacks as properties and drawbacks as glass fibre, carbon fibre, and basalt fibres; usually have a very high melting temperature,...
