PPG Earns GL Certification For Fiberglass Roving Products

NAW Staff, Tuesday 26 March 2013 - 00:00:00

Pittsburgh-based PPG Industries says that its fiberglass business has earned Germanischer Lloyd (GL) certification for the HYBON 2002 XM and HYBON 2026 XM fiberglass roving products. Each of these 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," says 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,” Richards continues.
