Renewable wind energy, through technological advancements, is beginning to compete on a large, industrialised scale with other energy sources like fossil fuel, hydro and nuclear power. Owens Corning composites ensure high strength-to-weight ratio, design flexibility, excellent fatigue and corrosion resistance, and reduced drag. Owens Corning provides windmill blade reinforcement materials and glass rovings designed to suit the latest composite fabrication processes such as vacuum-assisted resin infusion and pre-impregnated reinforcement lay-up. Owens Corning offers a dedicated, industry-driven technical support network and is directly involved with the Wind Energy Association and the Save Energy Alliance.
Composite materials used in the marine industry deliver high strength, reduced weight, excellent corrosion resistance, dimensional stability and improved cost performance. Composite materials also surpass traditional materials in offering enhanced aesthetics and reduced maintenance/replacement costs. Primary applications of composites for marine use include the construction of boat hulls, stringers and decks. Owens Corning offers a full range of Advantex® glassfiber reinforcement products for the marine industry's composite needs including knitted or woven fabrics, gun roving and mats. A wide variety of weights and configurations are available for marine construction. Owens Corning also offers reinforcement solutions to the challenges facing the marine industry in reducing manufacturing costs and lowering/eliminating resin emissions to comply with industry standards and regulations.
Owens Corning is dedicated to the long fiber thermoplastics market and has developed new processes and materials to yield longer fiber lengths. These longer fiber lengths will improve impact strength in applications such as appliances, electronics, automotive and other applications.
