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.
PPG Industries' fiber glass business has received certification from Germanischer Lloyd (GL), a leading international certification body in the wind energy industry, of HYBON 2002 XM and HYBON 2026 XM fiber glass roving products.
Approved as exceeding the requirements for R-Glass fiber, each of these direct roving products is manufactured with INNOFIBER XM specialty glass composition fibers by PPG.“Our INNOFIBER specialty glass composition fiber – specifically our XM high-modulus composition – offers mechanical properties beyond those of traditional E-Glass,” said Cheryl Richards, PPG global market development manager for energy and infrastructure markets. “The proprietary sizing chemistry we apply to the high-modulus HYBON XM rovings enables our customers to make higher-performance composites, such as longer wind turbine blades – an emergent trend in the wind energy market. In addition, lighter-weight automotive and aerospace applications are possible with the exceptional mechanical properties of these high-modulus rovings.“PPG is committed to providing solutions our customers demand and to supporting their long-term growth and expansion,” Richards said. “This certification shows that the high quality of our fiber glass products backs up that commitment.”
