Fibre glass is an immensely versatile material due to its light weight, inherent strength, weather-resistant finish and variety of surface textures.
During World War II, fibre glass was developed as a replacement for the moulded plywood used in aircraft radomes (antenna housings) as fibreglass is transparent to microwaves.
