AGY Expands Manufacturing Capacity

AGY has announced increased production output of its S-2 Glass fiber reinforcements with the capability to further increase output as market demands dictate. S-2 Glass fibers are made exclusively by AGY and are supplied to a variety of markets and end use applications around the world.

AGY (Aiken, S.C., USA) announced that it has increased production output of its S-2 Glass fiber reinforcements by 20% with the capability to further increase its output as market demands dictate. This expansion enables AGY to meet growth in both the aerospace and industrial markets for high-performance glass fibers used for composite reinforcement.

S-2 Glass fibers are made exclusively by AGY and are supplied to a variety of markets and end use applications around the world. In the aerospace industry, S-2 Glass fibers offer reinforcement properties that are critical to high-performance aerospace applications such as helicopter blades, aircraft flooring, interiors and structural parts.

AGY offers S-2 Glass fiber products that are designed to be compatible with phenolics, epoxies, polyesters, vinyl esters, and rubber, as well as many thermoplastic resins. AGY says S-2 Glass has tensile strength that exceeds that of standard-modulus carbon fiber as well as most grades of aramid fiber.
