Woven Fibreglass fabrics offer the best control over thickness, weight and strength. Fabricators can choose from a wide range of fabrics to satisfy their design needs and meet specific objectives.

Filament Fibreglass yarn

Fibreglass yarn is thin and smooth. It contains a light twist and is made from continuous filament yarns. This yarn is used to weave tight, thin fabrics with a smooth finish. After weaving, fabrics are often processed further to increase fabric properties.

Fabrics woven with filament fiberglass are available in weights ranging from 100g/m2  to 2000g/m2. Stainless steel wire reinforced fibreglass fabrics are also produced where additional strength is required.

Texturised Fibreglass yarn

Our Texturised fibreglass fabrics are woven using texturised E-glass yarns with a 9µm or a 6µm diameter. The yarn is put through an air-bulking process, increasing the yarns volume and thickness. Fabrics woven with texturised yarn are much thicker than those woven with filament yarn. With this extra thickness Texturised fibreglass fabrics offer an increased thermal rating. They are highly suitable to thermal insulation applications.

These fabrics are often further coated or impregnated with various chemicals to enhance fabric properties.


Further processing of Woven Fabrics

After weaving our high temperature fiberglass fabrics can be further treated. Further treatment of the loom-state fabric can improve performance properties and offer a better solution for your application.There are several treatment options for a woven loom state fabric, these include:

Heat-treatment (caramelized)

Coating / impregnating


Heat-treatment (caramelized)

Caramalised fibreglass fabrics are made by the being passing the loomstate fabric through a high temperature oven. The heat burns off the sizing that is applied to the fiber pre-weaving. Other organic elements and impurities are also burnt off in this process. This treatment also allows the fabric to be operated at continuous high temperatures without omitting smoke.

Coating / impregnating

 By coating or impregnating our fabric with special chemical compounds, the loomstate fabric’s performance properties can be greatly improved.

Our wide range of coatings can enhance fabric performance in areas such as:

  • Temperature resistance
  • Weather Proofing
  • Abrasion resistance
  • Water repellence
  • Oil / grease resistance
  • Chemical resistance



Laminating involves applying a face to one or both sides of the woven fabric. A laminate such as Aluminium foil can be applied with a high temperature adhesive to improve fabric performance in applications involving reflecting radiant heat.
