Owens Corning recently announced a strategic alliance with glass fiber producer Taishan Fiberglass, a subsidiary of China National Materials Group Sinoma, to grow the use of alkali-resistant (AR) specialty glass products sold under the brands Cem-FIL®, Anti–CRAK®, Slurry-FIL™ throughout the world. Manufacturing for the alliance will reportedly be based in China and supported by Owens Corning global research and development centers, which will provide product and application development for these specialty reinforcements. Taishan will concentrate on the China, ASEAN, Japan, Korea, South Africa and Saudi Arabia markets, with Owens Corning serving markets located throughout the rest of the world.

“We believe a bright future exists for glass reinforcements to be used in cement materials, the largest materials market in the world,” said Arnaud Genis, group president of Owens Corning. “With Owens Corning’s history of invention and pioneering in glass fiber reinforcements, together with Taishan’s strong manufacturing experience in China and Sinoma’s experience in cement materials and engineering, this alliance is the right combination to bring growth to AR glass reinforcements for the foreseeable future.”
