TIGRIS® Chopped Open Fiberglass

Tigris® Chopped Strands

Tigris® Chopped Strands are E-Glass filaments, precision cut from continuous fiberglass yarns. They are designated for low tolerance applications that require exact length and low moisture content. Naturally, Tigris® Chopped Strands embrace only the finest attributes in thermal, acoustic, and electric insulation.

Tigris® Chopped Strands are available at customer specified lengths ranging from 1.5 inch (4 cm) to 3.9 inch (10 cm). They offer reliable, superior performance for continuous operating temperatures up to 1000°F (500°C) and short time temperature peaks of up to 1200°F (650°C).

Tigris® Open Fibers

Tigris® Open Fibers offer high quality insulation features at an economical price. They are made from long fiberglass strands chopped to a length specified by the customer. A carding process separates the copped strands into its filaments.

Tigris® Open Fibers offer reliable, superior performance for continuous operating temperatures up to 1000°F (500°C) and short time temperature peaks of up to 1200°F (650°C).
