Fibreglass

Fibre glass is a popular construction material for crash helmets, sometimes also known as glass-reinforced plastic or GRP. Fibres of glass are laid in a polymer such as epoxy resin or a thermoplastic to produce a very strong and durable matt of material that’s relatively cheap to produce but easy to mould into complex shapes. In a crash helmet, it makes for a lightweight and strong helmet with a shell that’s less brittle than carbon fibre and able to stand significant abrasion as well as absorb substantial impacts before cracking.
