What Is Fiberglass?

In the strictest sense, fiberglass is a trademarked product of the Owens Corning company, invented in 1938 and marketed as a home insulation product (Fiberglas). While home insulation remains one of its most common applications, the name itself has become a generic term for any material containing thin fibers of glass formed into a woven layer or used as reinforcement.
