Fiberglass Mat for Resilient Flooring

Fiberglass mats, that are used as backing components in PVC and polyolefin based resilient flooring products, must meet a number of quality criteria, such as dimensional stability, moisture resistance and indoor aging resistance.

Offering significant benefits versus other reinforcements, they can extend the lifetime of floors, especially in high-traffic areas.? ?

What is a Fiberglass Mat?

A fiberglass mat (also called glass veil or glass nonwoven) is a flat fabric composed of chopped fiberglass oriented in a random pattern and bonded together. Originally invented to replace cardboard in waterproofing membranes, fiberglass mats have long since conquered additional applications such as commercial and residential construction, energy storage and automotive. Fiberglass mat can be tailormade to fit the properties the end applications require by adjusting for instance the fiberglass (glass type, fiber sizing, fiber length, fiber diameter, fiber mixture), the binder systems, the mat thickness, and the mat density. Fiberglass mat is sold in rolls of various widths and lengths. Most of the glass fiber mats manufactured worldwide are produced on similar (but not identical) machines to those used in the paper industry.
