Considering that the furniture you buy forms the backbone of the interiors of your business, would not you want it to be well built, durable and stylish at the same time? Contrary to popular beliefs, custom made fiberglass furniture are quickly becoming the preferred choice among business owners in numerous parts of the world. Historically speaking, fiberglass is much older than the optical fiber. It was patented way back in the 1930s, but only recently came about revolutionizing the glass and furniture industry recently.
FIBERGLASS FURNITURE MANUFACTURING PROCESS
All fiberglass furniture are well built thanks to a five step rigorous process:
01Refining at 1500 C:
Once the composition is heated; it turns into viscous liquid (at 800 C) and finally starts to seal. At 1500 C, the structure is uniform, and the bubbles and impurities disappear.
The molten glass is transformed into a filament by being stretched at a high speed; this process is akin to the classical textile spinning process that produces thread.
Stretching and winding do not exert a sufficient effect to permanently collect hundreds of filaments into a single thread (the glass is too smooth to agglomerate). To tackle this problem, sizing is done to add a protective coating in order to allow the agglomeration of filaments and facilitate the integration of polymers.
The wires are then wound or cut according to the desired shape.
The final form of the furniture is finally dried at temperatures of 600 to 700°C.
