PPG Industries has introduced a fiber glass spray-up roving that has demonstrated faster application with less resin and increased fiber glass content for enhanced structural integrity of the finished part, compared with its previous rovings. New Hybon 6400 fiber glass roving was developed to meet fabricators' needs for improved processing to reduce costs and save time, according to Mark A. Williams, director, global marketing, fiber glass thermoset products. "We worked with customers on trials to evaluate performance of Hybon 6400 roving in actual use," Williams said. "They reported being able to roll out the glass as much as 15% faster than with our previous roving."
