PPG Industries’ fiber glass business receives recognition for Innofiber XM fiber glass in the Materials category of the Ringier Technology Innovation Awards 2013.

A panel of independent judges – including college professors and composites industry experts – selected the products and technologies they felt were most innovative and would make the greatest contribution to the development of the Chinese composites market.

Innofiber specialty glass composition fibers – especially the XM high-modulus composition – are based on proprietary PPG technology that yields mechanical properties beyond those of traditional E-Glass.

Dr Joe Yu, PPG director of business development, fiber glass, Asia Pacific, said, “PPG is committed to providing solutions to our customers and supporting their long-term growth and expansion. Innofiber XM glass composition fibers offer better stiffness and are more lightweight than competitors’ products, which benefits end-use applications that utilize highly-oriented fiber reinforcements, such as wind blade and transportation applications.”
