    • Abstract


      High silica fabric with a silica content >98% can be prepared by removing the non-siliceous ions from the E-glass fabric using HCl as the leachant. The presence of Si-OH groups makes the material hydrophilic. The extent of moisture absorption depends on the extent of leaching. The moisture present in the leached fabric decreases the volume and surface resistivity values.
