Veronica: Golf club kayaks and boat proofest all have fiberglass in them, along with many other items that may surprise you. Hi I'm Veronica watchmojo.com, until you are going to take a closer look at fibre glass from the fiber itself, to the finished product. We are counseling hearing about fibre glass, but can you explain what that really means?
JP Schroeder: Its basically sand, that's melted and made into a fiber, and the fibre is very, very fine and we can assemble the fibre in fabrics and then when we mix that with resin we can make all kinds of light weight high performance stuff.
Veronica: How is that benefit the products that you use it with?
JP Schroeder: Well, because its very strong for its weight, we can make products that are light, that are very stiff perfect for a lot of sporting goods or for boats or for windmills, and that's really the basic building block of composite parts.
Veronica: Is there a huge price difference if this fiber involve.
JP Schroeder: Yeah, fiber glass is the also the least expensive of the high performance fibers, so we have a yellow stuff which is a acronyms like Kevlar, carbon which is black, but those are much more expensive fibers they are even lighter, and they are even stronger than fiber glass but they do cost more.
Veronica: When you go to buy product like the one's that we have behind as what would you look for?
JP Schroeder: Well, basically it's how much do you want to spend, you can spend a lot of money but it's not really linear you know you start spending much, much more money for a little bit of performance abundant.
Veronica: So what product personally do you think that you should go on the high end?
JP Schroeder: Well, I think carbon is probably you know the sexiest and the fibrous out there, all the high performance bicycles now are carbon fiber, they are so light and there is so efficient pedaling they are fast, and they look good.
Veronica: Can you tell us a little bit more about this kayak we have here?
JP Schroeder: Yeah, this kayak here it's a bit special, it was a designed it's the show case of the materials that we make at JP minds. The red that you see is the polyester fiber, its there to give a little bit of color its also puncture resistances the yellow strand is Kevlar very light weight, very stiff and also very impact resistant in the black is carbon so it provides a stiff structure that will pedal efficiently and go fast. All these together end up being very light weight and that's you know that's the really cool thing about it.
