Performance Attributes

OUTSTANDING MECHANICAL PROPERTIES
EXCELLENT PROCESSING
REDUCE COST
ENHANCED SERVICE LIFE
  • Excellent Processing

    • Designed for fast wet-out with capacity for very high glass content. <br> <br> • Smooth run-out and less fuzz, resulting in improved machine efficiencies. <br> <br> • Flexibility for use in filament winding, weaving, rebar, and pultrusion.

  • Reduce Cost

    • Provides flexibility and cost-saving through a single glass input and higher glass loading with multi-compatible resin systems.

  • Enhanced Service Life

    • Compared to standard E-glass, Advantex® glass provides longer service life in applications facing corrosion (including alkali aging) and possesses high-fatigue properties.

OUTSTANDING MECHANICAL PROPERTIES

• Excellent properties in both epoxy/amine and anhydride curing systems, unsaturated polyester and vinyl ester resins. <br> <br> • Improves axial tensile strength, inter-laminate shear strength, and burst stress for high-performance filament wound epoxy applications. <br> <br> • Designed for applications requiring high strand stiffness while increasing production efficiency.

Data based on internal Owens Corning results obtained from unidirectional (UD) samples, testing at the following conditions:

- Resin system: Epoxy LY556 + HY917CV (anhydride hardener)

- Curing cycle: 2h at 100°C + 4h at 140°C

- Glass fiber is ~70% weight fraction — tested following ISO527-5

1 For solids on direct roving, the sample must be taken after having discarded 1000 g from the outside and/or the inside of the package.

Rovings are available in a single-end internal-pull package. Pallets are stretch wrapped for load stability. All doffs are wrapped with Tack-Pak™ or shrinkable film for protection during transport. More information is available in the Customer Acceptance Standards.

Labeling

Each individual package is labeled with information including: product name, Tex/yield, producing plant, and production date.

Storage

It is recommended to store glass fiber products in a cool, dry area. The glass fiber products must remain in their original packaging material until the point of usage. The product should be stored in the workshop in its original packaging for 48 hours prior to its utilization, to allow it to reach the workshop temperature condition and prevent condensation, especially during the cold season. The packaging is not waterproof. Be sure to protect the product from the weather and other sources of water.
