Toledo, Ohio-headquartered Owens Corning, a supplier of glass fiber reinforcement materials to the wind energy market, has launched a new Weblog to provide technical information to designers, engineers and other professionals who work with composite materials related to wind energy.

The blog is a forum for sharing technical information about composite materials and their fabrication, the company says. The objective is to learn from each other, with the ultimate goal of advancing the wind energy market, lowering the price of wind energy and increasing its use. In addition to the information the company writes and posts, the team will also answer readers' questions about composite materials and processes.
