Cheswick, Pa.-based PPG Fiber Glass has sold its 50% interest in the PPG-Devold fiber glass joint venture to Hexagon Devold, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hexagon Composites. The 50-50 joint venture was created in 2007 to manufacture glass fiber reinforcement fabrics for use in turbine blades for wind energy.

PPG says it will continue to manufacture fiber glass material for the wind energy industry, and Hexagon Devold will continue to manufacture multiaxial and unidirectional reinforcement fabrics at PPG’s Shelby, N.C., fiberglass facility.

“PPG is a key supplier to many independent weavers and fabric manufacturers for wind turbines, including Hexagon Devold, and we look forward to continuing that relationship with them,” says Kevin McDonald, PPG general manager of U.S., Canada and EMEA fiberglass reinforcement.
