 Fiberglass Summary
Fiberglass is made of the same materials as regular glass—sand, soda, and lime--and can be produced by three methods.
In the third process, bulk fiberglass (fiberglass wool) is produced by melting the raw materials in a furnace and allowing the liquified glass to flow through tiny holes at the bottom; high-pressure steam jets catch the resulting strands and force them into fibers 8 to 15 inches (20 to 38 cm) long.
