Latest information on continuous filament glass fibres (CFGF) and human health. GlassFibreEurope continually reviews and updates product information based on the latest evaluation of work by different laboratories.
GlassFibreEurope (GFE) and Tech-Fab Europe (TFE) have called on all actors in the glass fibre value chain to stand united in the fight against illegal trade practises by China.
These industry guidelines have been drafted to support individual companies in the supply chain to establish their company specific manufacturing processes and procedures according good manufacturing practice, but don’t replace the respective requirements set by Commission Regulations.
Glass fibre-reinforced plastics (GFRP) are composite materials made of a polymer matrix reinforced with glass fibres. The glass fibres therein are treated with a sizing to hold individual filaments together and to promote adhesion to the polymer matrix. Glass fibre-reinforced plastics are covered by Regulation (EU) No 10/2011. Until 31.12.2015, compliance of the sizing was solely based on a risk assessment in accordance with Article 19. This guidance document intends to assist the supply chain actors in determining compliance of sizing formulations with the new requirements of Regulation (EU) No 10/2011.
