Glass Cloths

Glass cloths are manufactured from glass yarns. They have high thermal resistance, high corrosion resistance and high tensile strength, and are easily handled; the composition and diameter of the fibers can be altered as desired. The disadvantages of glass cloth are the lack of flexibility of individual fibers, causing splits and fractures, and its low resistance to abrasion. However, backing glass cloth with a lead plate, rubber mats or other rigid materials provides for longevity. Backing with cotton or rubber provides about 50% greater life than in cases where no backing is used.
