Fiberglass production presentation

  1. 1. A Presentation on: FIBER GLASS PRODUCTION -Group ‘E’ FY MBA
  2. 2. Introduction  Fiberglass is a lightweight, extremely strong, and robust material.  Fiberglass combines its light weight with an inherent strength to provide a weather resistant finish with a variety of surface textures.
  3. 3.  There are 4 methods by which fiberglass can be made. They are:  Fiberglass hand lay-up operation  Fiberglass spray lay-up operation  Pultrusion operation  Chopped strand mat
  4. 4. History  The history of modern fiberglass really only stretches back to the 1930s.  Mass production of glass strands was accidentally discovered in 1932 by a researcher at the Owens- Illinois, who accidentally directed a jet of compressed air at a stream of molten glass and produced fiber.
  5. 5. Continue…  A suitable resin for combining the fiberglass with a plastic was developed in 1936.  During the Second World War, it was developed as a replacement for the molded plywood used in aircraft.
  6. 6. Company Profile  The company, MAHAVIR ENTERPRISE, is engaged in supplying high quality Fiberglass Sheets : 1. Designer Fiberglass Sheet 2. Plain Fiberglass Sheet  This company deals with the sheets which are used only for shedding and roofing purposes.
  7. 7. Some Facts about MAHAVIR ENT.  Year of Establishment : 1990  Legal Status of Firm : Sole Proprietorship  Nature of Business : Manufacturer  Number of Employees : 11 to 25 people  Turnover : US$ 0.25-1 Million (Rs.1-4 crores Approx.)
  8. 8. Inputs  Fiberglass mat can be used between layers of woven fabric to help build thickness quickly and aid in all layers bonding well together.  MEKP (Methyl Ethyl Ketone Peroxide) is the catalyst added to polyester resin. It is a clear and colorless solution.
  9. 9. Continue…  Polyester resins are the most commonly used matrix in the marine and composite industry.  Polyester film is useful for making sheet. Polyester film is reusable.
  10. 10. Production Process  Plain Fiberglass sheet’s production starts with polyester film
  11. 11.  Then polyester resin is spread on the polyester film  After the polyester resin is spread completely over the film, fiber glass mat is applied over it.
  12. 12.  Over this arrangement, polyester film is again laid which gives strength and support to the sheet.  The air between the layers is then removed with a spatula-type object.
  13. 13.  It is allowed to dry for 7 to 8 hours so that it can take the shape of the mould.
  14. 14.  When dried, the sheets are given proper shape with a cutter and edges are smoothened.
  15. 15.  Designed fiberglass sheets are made by adding many other materials such as agro net, bamboo sheet, colored papers or cloth are used.
  16. 16. Output  These sheets are then transported locally or within the state as per the client’s order.
  17. 17. Applications  Telecommunications  Making storage tanks  Septic tanks  House building, door surrounds
  18. 18. Continue…  Automotive industry  Small watercrafts  Fire water, sewage, wastewater and drinking water systems.  Gas system
  19. 19. Health Problems  Workers are more likely to get affected by exposure to fiberglass. Some of the problems are: 1. A rash can appear on skin. 2. Eyes may become red and irritated. 3. Temporary stomach irritation. 4. Soreness in the nose and throat.  Smaller fibers have the ability to reach the lower part of the lungs increasing the chance of adverse health effects.
  20. 20. Steps to reduce exposure  Wear loose fitting, long-sleeved clothing and gloves.  Wear a mask over the nose and mouth to prevent breathing in the fibers.  Wear goggles or safety glasses with side shields to protect the eyes.  Open a window or a door to increase ventilation and reduce dust levels.  Use a shop vacuum after wetting the dust and fibers.
