News International-French

2 Jun 2014

Owens Corning, a leading global producer of glass fiber reinforcements and engineered materials for composite systems, launched the first Technical Fabrics Guide for industrial, marine and leisure applications.

The Technical Fabrics Guide includes product characteristics, benefits and resin compatibilities for more than 80 products available in the European market. Featured products encompass unidirectionals, biaxials, multiaxials, various combinations, complexes, specialty mats and woven roving fabrics.

The Technical Fabrics Guide is designed to assist customers, designers and engineers in discovering Owens Corning’s full range of fabric solutions to meet their particular end-use needs.

The material calculator enables users to estimate thickness for a laminate of a single product depending on the weight and fabric construction or, conversely, the glass content in a laminate to help identify the optimum solution for a given application. Results can be saved as “favorites” for future reference or used to send a request for additional information or a quotation.

Additional features include a “Fabrics Terminology” section defining 74 key terms such as, Drapability, Twill, Shear Angle, as well as a “News” section and the ability to save products in a “Favorites” list.

This new, free App can be downloaded now from the App store for iPhone and iPad devices and from Google Play Store app for devices for Android. Simply search “Tech Fabrics Guide” or “Composites Guide.”
