JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
Owens Corning, a leading global producer of glass fiber reinforcements for composite systems and residential and commercial building materials announced that its OptiSpray roving solutions are available globally. Multi-end rovings provide high performance and flexible processing in a variety of spray-up molds.
Designed for spray-up processes in a variety of applications including marine, sanitary, swimming pools and transportation, OptiSpray™ solutions provide optimum wetting for good surface finish and mechanical strength in the finished product. The family of solutions includes OptiSpray™, OptiSpray™ H and OptiSpray™ F rovings.
“This family of products is made with Owens Corning’s patented Advantex® glass fiber which combines the electrical and mechanical properties of traditional E-glass with the corrosion resistance of EC-R glass,” said Dr. Ashish Diwanji, Owens Corning vice president, innovations. “OptiSpray rovings are designed to provide optimal processing and performance for spray-up applications in a wide range of mold shapes and resin systems.”
OptiSpray™ solutions deliver performance benefits including easy chopping, rolling and air release; flat lay down and uniform dispersion; excellent conformability without spring back; optimal resin consumption and excellent performance in vertical parts. The result is a finished product with great surface quality and strong mechanical properties. Customer evaluations indicate OptiSpray™ solutions are outperforming other products currently available in the marketplace.
“OptiSpray™ solutions improve manufacturing efficiency with less down time and potentially lower resin consumption,” added Diwanji. “We are able to use our global network to supply our customers locally and provide technical support.”
