I know fiberglass has the properties of fire resistance, thermal insulation and is quite strong enough as well. I am planning on getting into the manufacturing of high strength fiberglass and work on bringing the cost down. It would help if someone from Civil answered to why or why not fiberglass is used in houses and in what areas if it is. I am thinking of starting with wall building with acoustic insulation, not the traditional fiberglass wool way but using vacuum.
