Q: What is carbon fiber?
A: An important reinforcing fiber known for its light weight, high strength and high stiffness.
Q: What is E-glass?
A: "Electrical glass", the borosilicate glass most often used as glass fibers in filament winding.
Q: What is S-glass?
A: Structural glass: used as a reinforcement, designed to provide very high tensile strength.
