Fiberglass is a super-strong synthetic material with a high tensile strength starting from 55MPa. Throughput of fiberglass shredder ranges between 300kg/hr and 6000kg/hr, based on the configuration of the materials and machine model selection. The final output size is 40mm.

Why do we need to recycle fiberglass?
As we all know, fiberglass is a broad-spectrum material. It is a material made of thin glass fibers woven together. It is made up of silica, sand and other naturally occurring materials typically found in glass. Fiberglass can be divided into two major groups, continuous fibers and discontinuous fibers. Continuous fibers are widely used in yarns and textiles. Discontinuous fibers are widely used in batts, blankets, etc. Generally speaking, fiberglass is a kind of very usefully chemical material, when we enjoy the benefits and conveniences it brings to us, we also must be careful to handle it properly and not let its toxins collect in landfills.

On the other hand, fiberglass is a very strong material and can last for many years. After recycling, it can create even greater value. For example, it can be used to make fences instead of wood fences after recycling. Fiberglass fences are more durable than wood fences. In this way, we can also protect the forest resources on the earth.

It is not only for convenient transport but also for the convenience of the next recycling step. Then we send it to professional fiberglass recycling centers. In the recycling center, it will transform the pieces/powder of fiber glasses into brand new material that can take place of wood/aluminum to build picnic tables, fencing, sea walls and other items.
