Default checkmark 532c0226933c1e8d3a627c06fe543a847c8fd37eb08cacd61b6a83b3fc0c769f Suitable for Drinking Water Applications
  • Excellent processability

    Due to proprietary sizing, the product shows low static build-up and fuzz, easy choppability (no long fiber cut), excellent runnability (smooth unwinding), leading to excellent fiber distribution. <br> Excellent fiber distribution enables the chopped strand layers to remain open and thus allows great wet-through and impregnation.

  • High mechanical properties

    The product design provides high mechanical properties to the final part (see technical data).

  • Suitable for drinking water applications

    495 product has been assessed for compliance with the requirements applicable to glass fiber reinforced plastic in contact with drinking water. For further details, please contact ProductCompliance@owenscorning.com.

  • Enhanced service life

    Advantex® glass helps fight corrosion, enhancing service life compared to standard E-glass.

Applications

Packaging (Standard Reference)

Each pallet can be packaged in bulk or Creel-Pak™ packaging format. Pallets are stretch-wrapped for load stability and for protection during transport. All individual packages are wrapped with Tack-Pak™ packaging to aid package run-out and transfer. More information is available in the Customer Acceptance Standards.

LABELING

Each doff has a self-adhesive identification label showing the product description, net weight and production date. Each pallet has at least two identification labels detailing the product reference, pallet net and gross weights, production date and pallet production code.



STORAGE

Unless otherwise specified, it is recommended to store glass fiber products in a cool, dry area. Ideal conditions are at a temperature between 10°C and 35°C and a relative humidity between 35% and 85%. The glass fiber products must remain in their original packaging material until the point of usage. If the storage temperature is below 15°C, it is recommended that the product be stored in the workshop, within its original packaging, at least 24 hours prior to use to help prevent condensation. The packaging is not waterproof. Be sure to protect the product from the weather and other sources of water. When stored properly, the product can be used up to 2 years from the date of manufacture, and retesting is advised after 1 year from the initial production date to insure optimum performance.
