Glass Fibre: Classification, Production, Structure, Properties & Applications
Lipsa Mohapatra

All kinds of glass fibres are highly amorphous in nature. There is no cohesive force between the fibres due to the absence of intermolecular attraction. The more cross-linking capacities of cationic elements like boric oxide and alumina increase the strength of the material. Glass E is the strongest fibre with high insulation properties.
