What's the difference between glass fiber and glass wool?

Answer:

Glass fiber (formerly known as English: glass fiber or fiberglass) is a kind of excellent inorganic non-metallic materials, variety, has the advantages of good insulation, strong heat resistance, good corrosion resistance, high mechanical strength, but the disadvantage is brittle, poor wear resistance. It is a glass ball or waste glass as raw materials by high temperature melting, wire drawing, winding and weaving process for production, the filament diameter of several microns to twenty micron, the equivalent of a hair 1/20-1/5, each bundle of fibers by hundreds or even thousands of root root filaments. Glass fiber is usually used as reinforcing material in composite materials, electrical insulation materials and insulation materials, circuit boards and other fields of national economy. Glass wool belongs to a kind of glass fiber, it is a kind of man-made inorganic fiber. Glass wool is the molten glass fibrosis, the formation of cotton like material, chemical composition of glass, is a kind of inorganic fibers. With good forming, small volume density, thermal conductivity, both thermal insulation, sound-absorbing performance, corrosion resistance, chemical stability.
Glass fiber is an inorganic non-metallic material used in chemical, electronic, communications and other applications. Glass wool is a kind of glass fiber, and its use is narrower.
Glass wool belongs to a kind of glass fiber, it is a kind of man-made inorganic fiber. Glass wool is a product will be environment-friendly formula binder processing molten glass fibrosis and thermosetting resin based form, is a production of glass fiber with diameter of only a few microns into a fibrous body elastic. Therefore, glass fiber can not be used instead of sieve plate, glass cotton should be used
