  • Publication number: 20130217822
    Abstract: Glass batch compositions for the formation of high-modulus, and high-strength glass fibers as well as fibers suitable for use as textile and reinforcements are disclosed. Fibers formed of the composition are especially suitable for use in high-strength, low-weight applications such as windmill blades and high strength and modulus applications where strength and stiffness are required in the composite. The glass composition is up to about 70.5 weight % SiO2, about 24.5 weight % Al2O3, about 22 weight % alkaline earth oxides and may include small amounts of alkali metal oxides and ZrO2. Additionally, glass fibers formed from the inventive composition are non-corrosive or substantially non-corrosive in nature. Due to the non-corrosive nature of the glass fibers, glass fibers made with the inventive composition may be used in applications where the glass fibers or a composite formed from the glass fibers are in contact with a corrosive substance.

The weight percentage of each of the components are as follows: SiO2 58˜65%, CaO 20˜26%, Al2O3 9˜17%, MgO 0.5˜1%, B2O3 0˜5%, F2 0˜1%, TiO2 0.1˜1%, K2O+Na2O 0˜0.8%, Fe2O3 0.1˜0.5%, SO3 0˜0.6%. The ternary system, SiO2—Al2O3—CaO, is basis of the fiberglass composition in this invention, which also has low quantities of MgO and B2O3. In addition, the total amount of alkaline earth oxide and the proportional relationship between MgO and CaO are rationally designed, which helps to improve the mechanical strength, heat resistance, and chemical stability of the glass. It also has excellent manufacturing performance. Moreover, the raw materials of the fiberglass composition in this invention are low in cost, and the invention meets environmental protection requirements.

    Abstract: A high-intensity and high-modulus glass fiber is provided. Said fiber is produced by improving the processes, components and proportion of conventional E-glass production process and apparatus. The fiber contains 13% CaO at most, no boron and fluorine, meanwhile ZrO2 and Li2O is first added, B2O3 is first removed, and SO3 is added. The intensity and the modulus of the fiber are slightly lower than those of S-glass or T-glass, but obviously higher than those of E-glass and ECR-glass which are highly produced and widely used or other boron-free glass such as Advantex glass. Besides the intensity, modulus and fatigue resistance, said fiber has obvious advantages over E-glass in heat, acid and alkali resistance. The glass fiber roving made from said fiber has 22% higher tensile strength and 11˜15.7% higher modulus than those of E-glass, and has 16% higher tensile strength and 5˜6% higher modulus than those of ECR-glass.

Fibers were produced from the disclosed compositions using standard glass processing equipment. These fibers yielded high temperature fibers having low density, high strength, high modulus, excellent glass surfaces requiring very little bonding material to hold the fibers together. Bio solubility is preferably promoted by ensuring that only trace quantities of alumina are present.
