Imagine a private completely built with as its body, what could be it advantage and disadvantage? Discovery has shown that most conveying products and other industrial products were made with except for its carriage or tank area, the drivers are and components were completely sealed with against the usual method of using iron and steel. A good example of such truck is the brands of MACK, DAF, MAN, ETC.
The had been known for lots of advantage over metal sheets such that manufacturers of expensive products prefer to metallic sheets, such manufacturers include; manufacturers, domestic and speedboats manufacturers, and truck manufacturers, etc.
We shall be going into details on how such material has become so preferable to our famous metallic sheets. Here is what we simply believed that would have made such manufactures to prefer to metal sheets:
Unlike metal sheets which deform their shape at any slightest impact, thereby creating an ugly look and may need the service of a panel beater to get it into shape assisting it with panel . Even with such services, in most cases, the panel can never look as smooth as it was earlier made by the manufacturers.
However, fiber has proven to be different, this is because; it does not deform in shape even at a high impact. It is known for its elastic strength which enables the shape to return back to normal after an impact has been made on it. However, when the impact exceeds the elastic limit of the fiber, it will crack. Such heavy impact could only occur when there is a fatal accident giving room to a very high impact force, but the good news is that; even such crack can be repaired within 24 hours by patching the together again with its needed materials. For this reason, it is easier to fix a cracked than to smoothen deformed metal sheets.
IS STRONGER FOR IMPACT
Considering why all the above-mentioned manufacturers use ? Yes, it is because can withstand great impact than metals. If a of 50N can deform an alloyed sheet of 1mm thickness, it may take up to a of 100N to crack a sheet of 1mm thickness. For this reason, it is employed when any product would face impact steadily while on service.
IT CAN BE COLD-WORKED
Unlike metal sheets which require professional companies to produce them in their various thickness and will do so only through the application of heat and be rolling of the heated metals to obtain the sheets in their various thickness, a process that can take days or several hours.
can be made with ease when all the materials needed are available, a simple process of dropping the net and applying its calcium powder and bonding liquid will get the ready for use within 24 hours.
IT CAN ADAPT TO WEATHER CONDITIONS
Fiber does not get hot during hot sunny hours, it does not allow water to pass through it, it is highly adaptive to any weather condition. While metal sheets may contribute to the internal rise in of a product does not.
CANNOT SINK IN WATER
When not attached with heavy metals in the products metal skeleton, fiber can make the entire product to float in water, a good reason it is used in the making of speedboats.
IT CANNOT CORRODE OR RUST
can neither corrode nor rust even when left uncovered in a severe weather condition for years. A quality that has made it preferable for ship making and products to enhance their durability.
Except for special alloyed metal sheets, metal sheets tends to corrode after years of abandoning in an open air in severe weather condition.
IT RETAINS ITS LONGER
It has also been discovered that has a greater with than metals, for this reason, it tends to retain any on it for a very long time especially oil use in metals.
Nevertheless, let us look at the possible reasons while is not used generally in-place of metal sheets;
MAY BE MORE EXPENSIVE
Considering its scarcity as the materials needed for the production are products of petrochemical which are few around the globe, the materials such as the net and others are expensive and not readily available like metals which are readily available.
NEEDS ITS EXPERT FOR SHAPING
Unlike metal sheets that can be handled by anyone and made into a shape, needs experts to make it into shape and such expert may not be common in the industry.
WEIGHT LIMIT OF
When at a small thickness within 1mm may be lighter than steel sheets of the same thickness, but when a is made to be thicker so as to gain some advantages in the intended conditions of use, they may become heavy. So if without being that thick it would not serve its purpose, then it may become a limit that may put metals into preferable conditions.
