Fiberglass, in particular, is being replaced by hemp-based plastic materials for several reasons. Hemp plastics are extremely strong and yet very lightweight and can, therefore, provide various functional efficiencies. Whether they are more durable than fiberglass will depend on how they are manufactured. But hemp is also entirely sustainable, non-hazardous, and provides excellent insulation compared to the regular fiberglass material. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Cleverclogs 0 Questions 204 Answers 0 Best Answers 414 Points View Profile Cleverclogs 2020-08-16T12:50:52-04:00Added an answer on August 16, 2020 at 12:50 pm Whether you work in construction or you want to know a little more about hemp composite vs. fiberglass, there are a few distinct differences between the two. Both hemp and fiberglass are both incredibly strong. However, there are certain situations where one is better suited to a job than another. Hemp fiber is also significantly cheaper than carbon fiber to buy and process. Because of the strength of both of these materials, some companies are now combining fiberglass with hemp to deliver the ultimate solution in terms of performance across a range of applications. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp acevedobenitez 0 Questions 182 Answers 0 Best Answers 366 Points View Profile acevedobenitez 2020-07-26T13:14:47-04:00Added an answer on July 26, 2020 at 1:14 pm For a natural fiber substitute to fiberglass, you can’t get better than hemp fibers. As a hole, hemp fibers insulate better than fiberglass and are more durable. Because hemp is a sustainable resource, you do not have to worry about harming the environment for production. You really also do not have to worry about the health concerns of fiberglass with hemp fibers. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp MarcLouis 0 Questions 187 Answers 0 Best Answers 376 Points View Profile MarcLouis 2020-07-25T10:48:08-04:00Added an answer on July 25, 2020 at 10:48 am Hemp is known to be stronger than fiberglass.

The short answer is yes, hemp is stronger than fiberglass. I’m sure there are other variations and factors that have to be considered if doing a strength test, but again the short answer is hemp wins. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Moogdummy 0 Questions 246 Answers 0 Best Answers 521 Points View Profile Moogdummy 2020-07-13T17:39:47-04:00Added an answer on July 13, 2020 at 5:39 pm No, it’s not necessarily, but apparently, if you combine the two, you get a super-strong composite according to this research! https://www.researchgate.net/publication/328005439_Studies_on_mechanical_strengths_of_hemp-glass_fibre_reinforced_epoxy_composites 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Abe Melbourne, Australia 2 Questions 238 Answers 0 Best Answers 559 Points View Profile Abigail 2020-07-11T10:06:50-04:00Added an answer on July 11, 2020 at 10:06 am Yes, I assure you it is, and its ten times stronger and has lighter weight than fiberglass material also with the best safe experience when facing accidental traumas! Looking back at history, we would see Henry Ford building the hemp fiber car for racing cars! These days the hemp that is consumed in the outside world makes plastic production less needed, which will lead us into taking the world back to green! 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp wordsmith 0 Questions 256 Answers 0 Best Answers 531 Points View Profile wordsmith 2020-07-13T17:39:23-04:00Added an answer on July 13, 2020 at 5:39 pm Hemp fibers are considered one of the strongest among other natural fibers. It is the best choice as an alternative for coconut, bamboo, flax, and more natural fibers. Fiberglass is the oldest and is commonly used fiber. But hemp fiber is more cost-effective and more durable at the same time compared to fiberglass. Mechanical properties of hemp fiber are also way better than fiberglass. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp CrayM 0 Questions 311 Answers 0 Best Answers 655 Points View Profile CrayM 2020-07-13T17:38:25-04:00Added an answer on July 13, 2020 at 5:38 pm Yes, it is!

That hemp plastic was 10 X stronger than steel. Car manufacturers are now using hemp composite to make dashboards, door panels, and trunks. They are cheaper, stronger, and lighter than glass and fiberglass, so they are even great for gas mileage. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp wavess 0 Questions 234 Answers 0 Best Answers 495 Points View Profile wavess 2020-07-08T18:03:09-04:00Added an answer on July 8, 2020 at 6:03 pm Hemp is stronger than fiberglass.
