Glass Fabrics

Fiberglass fabrics are the core strength comprising the interior structure of the fuselage in most aircraft today. Our E-glass and high strength S-glass fabrics for composites applications utilize a heavier construction with complex weave patterns to produce a very high strength, high performance, lower cost fabric than carbon or Kevlar®.

Specifications

MIL-Y-1140 This specification covers the basic forms of untreated glass fiber used by themselves or as components of other materials. The materials are generally used as electrical insulation, mechanical support, or as structural members.

MIL-C-9084 This specification covers the requirements for glass fabrics that have been woven, cleaned, and finished for further fabrication into the glass fabric base resin laminates and sandwich materials.

BMS 9-3 This specification covers the requirements for woven glass fabric reinforcements used by The Boeing Company and Boeing subcontractors, and supplied to The Boeing Company and Boeing subcontractors by raw material material suppliers for structural and nonstructural laminated products. This specification requires qualified products.

LOCKHEED FMS-3015B This specification establishes the minimum requirements for woven glass cloth that has been suitably finished for fabrication into an epoxy laminate.

LOCKHEED 5PTMGG15 This specification establishes the requirements for miscellaneous styles of glass fabric, glass yarn, and glass woven tapes.

AMS 3824 This specification covers E-glass in the form of woven cloth primarily as a reinforcing material for structural plastic laminates with finishes suitable for use with various resin matrices.
