OWENS CORNING: Glass Fiber Reinforcements Guide

This company recently presented a chemical resistance guide for glass fibers at the international trade show for the National Association of Corrosion Engineers. The guide provides information to help end users, engineers and fabricators select glass fiber reinforcements for use in fiberglass-reinforced polymer (FRP) applications used in corrosive environments.

“We talked with specifiers and end users and realized that the corrosion market was missing an important tool,” said Ashish Diwanji, vice president, Innovation, Composite Solutions business. “This guide will help FRP designers balance cost and performance when selecting the best glass fiber to meet their needs.”

The “Glass Fiber Reinforcement Chemical Resistance Guide” contains test results, examples of specifications and information about industry standards for glass fiber compositions used in FRP applications. The results were compiled from tests conducted in the laboratory and knowledge gained in the company’s field experience, and illustrates the effect of various chemicals on different glass fibers. Examples of writing specifications are provided to ensure accuracy and consistency. The company included industry standards for glass fibers used to resist corrosion because selecting the right glass fiber is a key factor in corrosion resistance and can lower the risk of failure.
