Advanced fibre is a term used to describe any reinforcing fibres characterized by either extraordinary strength, modulus or resistance to high temperature; beyond those more well-known such as polyester, nylon fibre, glass fibre, etc. One example of advanced fibre most people have knowledge of is carbon fibre and aramid fibre, other metal fibres in the group such as glass fibres, boron, silicon carbide and silicon nitride; furthermore, whiskers of inorganics and metals.
