AGY Completes Capacity Expansions for Specialty Glass Fiber Products

AGY Holding Corp., a leading global producer of glass fiber yarns and high-strength glass fiber reinforcement materials, has completed capacity expansions for its S-2 Glass® and L-Glass™ specialty glass fiber product lines.

"Earlier this year, AGY announced plans to increase capacity of its specialty glass fiber products," said Patrick Burns, President CEO.  "I am pleased to report we have successfully completed these capacity expansions.  AGY is now well positioned to service the continued growth in demand for its S-2 Glass high performance and L-Glass low loss glass fibers."

Compared to standard glass fibers, AGY's S-2 Glass fibers offer superior performance in strength, stiffness, and thermal properties and are available as yarns, single-end rovings, multi-end rovings, and chopped strands.  The low dielectric constant and low dissipation factor of AGY's L-Glass yarns are ideally suited for printed circuit boards designs requiring increased signal speeds and high signal integrity.
