Glass fibre has a similar makeup to other fibres such as polymer and carbon fibre. While not as firm as carbon fibre it is significantly cheaper to produce and much less brittle when used in composites. Glass fibres are more commonly used than others to reinforce polymer products such as chairs and tables. This makes them incredibly strong and lightweight, while the resin in the polymer keeps it flexible.
It’s now common to find glass fibre reinforced plastic in poly tables and chairs. They often have a slight sparkle in the surface when looked at carefully. This is the glass fibres reflecting light rays.
All of the polypropylene furniture manufactured by Siesta Exclusive has glass fibre reinforcing. It’s manufactured in Europe to the highest production standards, and factory tested to meet the tough conditions of the Australian commercial market.
