Ceramic bushings of different geometries and sizes have been developed for drawing continuous glass fibres as reinforcements. Both pure alumina and stabilised zirconia have been used in fabricating such bushings. The characteristics of fibres drawn through these bushings are shown to be similar to those drawn through conventional platinum-rhodium ones. Alumina bushings have poor corrosion resistance properties with respect to E-glass but are satisfactory for A- and C- glass compositions. Stabilised zirconia bushings give superior performance with regard to E-glass.
