|Container loads with mixed goods available?
|It is often possible to have a 20ft container loaded with two or more types of fiberglass - say 1/2 loaded with Rovings and 1/2 with Chopped Strand Mat - as long as the goods come from the same factory.
|You can get samples from us to check the quality. If you need a large batch of samples to
test on your production line, we will be happy to co-operate with you. Once you approve of the
samples, we then ship the container loads of fiberglass - the exact same quality as the
samples you checked.
|Do you have a standard price list?

| E-Glass and C-Glass - what's the difference?
|The main difference between C-glass and E-glass is the percentage alkali content. E-glass is suitable for electrical insulation. Whereas C-glass fiberglass has greater resistance to acid and corrosive chemical substances. For the appearance, FRP products made with E-glass are more transparent than C-glass. Tensile strength is slightly more superior with E glass. C-glass is available in woven roving, roving, chopped strand mat, and others. Price for c-glass is about 10% less than for e-glass materials.
