The Tokyo Olympics finally opened on July 23, 2021 after being postponed for one year due to the new crown epidemic. It is reported that the Tokyo Olympics implements the principle of "3R hosting the Olympics" and adheres to the concepts of Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle, which has attracted the attention of the Olympic world.
Fiberglass was also used in the construction of this Olympic Games. Below, let us take stock of those designs that used glass fiber in the Olympic Games!
Fiberglass + Olympic venues
The newly-built main venue for the Tokyo Olympics, the New National Competition Field, integrates the stands, roof, lounge, and main arena, and can accommodate at least more than 10,000 people.
Although the materials used in the venues are mainly steel, cement and wood, there are still many infrastructures that use fiberglass products.
Fiberglass mesh plays a decisive role in the wall construction of the New National Stadium, because if the wall lacks the support of glass fiber, it is easy to peel off. The production staff dipped glass fiber into the resin, and after curing, affixed the external wall materials such as slabs to prevent the wall from peeling off and increase the service life of the wall.
According to Jian Wu, the architect of the New National Competition Arena, there is no air conditioner installed in the stadium, but 185 blowers with strong horsepower have been installed to cover the entire stadium in order to increase the ventilation of the stadium and provide help for low-carbon cooling. Among them, the fan blades of the blower use high-strength wind power yarn for reinforcement.
Fiberglass + Olympic Village
The Olympic Village is located in the Harumi Seaside District of Tokyo, Japan. It has three areas: "Residential Area", "Operation Area" and "Olympic Village Plaza". The "Residential Area" consists of 21 buildings with 14 to 18 floors and can accommodate up to 18,000 people. .
Because of the epidemic, there are no spectators at the Olympic Games, so the number of people watching TV increases with the increase in demand for TV. Among them, electronic fabrics are widely used in PCB boards of home appliances such as TVs and refrigerators. Because of the strong insulation, heat resistance, and corrosion resistance of glass fiber, semiconductors and chips in home appliances can operate stably.
It is reported that the toilets in the dormitory of the Tokyo Olympic Village are equipped with a complete set of shower facilities. SMC products are used in bathtubs to enhance the strength of the bathtub; in the overall bathroom, SMC glass fiber is basically used as a reinforcing material to achieve an excellent effect of waterproof reinforcement.
Roof waterproof system
The roof waterproof facilities of the Olympic Village also have asphalt sand and fiberglass. Compared with traditional tiles and sloped roof drainage systems, the use of glass fiber composite materials to pave the waterproof system greatly reduces the weight of the roof, reduces the load-bearing burden of the underlying building, and makes the roof stronger and more durable. As a new infrastructure, optical fiber and optical cable communication facilities play an important role in the daily lives of athletes. Fiber optic cables are indispensable for fiber optic cable reinforcing core yarns and electronic insulation yarns. The addition of glass fiber will strengthen the insulation and mechanical properties of the fiber optic cable, while ensuring the service life and strength of the facility.
The helmet plays a role in protecting the athlete's head, especially in sports such as bicycles and baseball. In a helmet, there are at least 7-8 layers of sheets made of direct gauze fabric to stabilize the helmet structure, enhance the helmet's anti-collision ability, and ensure the safety of athletes.
A small racket also contains a lot of knowledge, especially table tennis, badminton and other items
Performance, enhance the rigidity and strength of the board surface.
The racket is indispensable. At the material level, the glass fiber strengthens the racket on the racket.
Fiberglass is also widely used in tennis, baseball, hockey, sailing, skateboarding and other sports equipment to strengthen and improve the performance of the equipment.
As a high-strength, replaceable non-metallic material, glass fiber has become an indispensable new material in production and life. The Olympic Games has brought broad development space to the fiberglass composite industry.
In the future, China Jushi will continue to improve its independent R&D and innovation capabilities of glass fiber materials, actively seize market opportunities, provide high-quality materials for infrastructure and sports equipment, actively build a world brand, provide new solutions for high-end composite materials, and make life better good!
