Designed for all Resin Systems and Optimized for Weavers

PARIS -- Today at the annual JEC Composites Show, Owens Corning (NYSE: OC), the leading global producer of glass fiber reinforcements for composite systems, introduced SE1550, a new single-end Type 30(®) roving which is compatible with all major thermoset resin systems and weaving processes. The new roving will be available globally and is made from the company's Advantex(®) glass, a corrosion-resistant E-CR glass fiber reinforcement that meets ASTM D578, ISO 2078 and DIN1259-1 standards.

"SE1550 roving is designed for applications such as woven, knitted and multi-axial fabrics or pre-pregs where enhanced mechanical properties including fatigue performance are required for all resin systems," said Global Product Leader for Type 30(® )Eric Carlier. "Our advanced sizing and chemical binding technology makes the roving compatible and well-suited for use in unsaturated polyesters, vinyl esters and epoxy resins." This technology was optimized for use by weavers to improve productivity by minimizing the changeovers required as they manufacture fabrics for use in multiple resin systems.

Fabrics manufactured using SE1550 roving provide superior mechanical performance in major thermoset resin systems and excellent performance retention after exposure to moisture. These properties are beneficial in end-use markets like marine, water pipe and other consumer and industrial applications.

The SE1550 roving delivers a range of benefits that include processing with low-fuzz, less clean-up and reduced glass waste. The high-quality fabrics can shorten cycle times, provide high resin pick-up and improve part aesthetics.
