Owens Corning: glass reinforcements to enhance vehicle efficiency

Owen Corning will be highlighting the benefits that glass reinforced composites can have on cars and trucks with regards to improved fuel efficiency and helping to reduce carbon dioxide emissions at the JEC Europe 2013 show, starting tomorrow in Paris, France.

Light weighting vehicles for improved fuel efficiency and helping to reduce carbon dioxide emissions are among the benefits glass reinforced composites can have on the cars and trucks we drive.
These topics will be among the highlights of what Owens Corning will present at the JEC Europe 2013 show in Paris, starting tomorrow, 12 March. Owens Corning, a leading global producer of glass fiber reinforcements for composite systems and residential and commercial building materials, will also introduce two additional products: New OptiSpray™ F – a multi-end roving for complex spray up applications requiring fast wet-out; and new Advantex® SE2307 roving for high performance filament-wound epoxy pipes.
Owens Corning will exhibit its extensive portfolio of composite solutions and present the following topics:
•    Wednesday 13 March, 11.30 a.m.: Winning in the Corrosion Market
•    Thursday 14 March, 11.30 a.m.: SE2307, a new reinforcement for high temperature, high pressure epoxy pipes applications
•    Thursday 14 March, 4.10 p.m.: COFAHe solution, high energy-performance façade panels based on composite profiles. This application development will be granted a JEC 2013 Innovation Award in the Building and Construction category.
