Packaging (Standard Reference)

Rovings are available in a single-end internal-pull package. Each pallet weighs approximately 1 ton. Pallets are stretch wrapped for load stability. All doffs are wrapped with Tack-Pak™ for protection and to aid package run-out and transfer. Full doffs are approximately 20-21 kg (45 lb.) and they can be packaged in bulk or CreelPak™ format.


Standard Package:

  • Cylindrical bobbin without tube, Outside Diameter (OD) ±270mm, height 260-300mm.
  • Partial bobbins have smaller diameter.
  • Max bobbin weight approximately 21kg. 600 Tex and greater.
  • Bobbin covered by a Tack-Pack™ film.

Pallet:

  • Size: 1150x1150mm, 4 ways entry.
  • 16 bobbins (maxOD) per layer. Pallets are 3 to 4 tiers high.
  • Pallet is stretched-wrapped.

Identification:

  • Bobbin label (each bobbin).
  • Four pallet labels, one on side of the pallet.


Storage

Glass fiber products must remain in the packaging material until just prior to use. It is recommended to bring material in the workshop place at least 24 hours prior to use. WindStrand® 2000 roving should be stored in a dry area with ambient temperature optimally from 8°C to 26°C and relative humidity 70% or less. To insure optimal performance, retesting is recommended for products stored more than two years from the initial production. The packaging system is designed to allow stacking of two pallets. When stacking two high, care should be taken to place the top pallet correctly and smoothly. Owens Corning is not responsible for any damage resulting from stacking pallets higher than two high.
