Owens Corning Introduces New Sustaina® Glass Veil And Ultrapipe® Fabric Design At Techtextil 2013

CHAMBERY, France, June 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Owens Corning (NYSE: OC) introduced a new glass-based solution for construction, transportation and pipe rehabilitation during the Techtextil trade show in Frankfurt, June 11-13. Owens Corning is a global producer of glass fiber reinforcements for composite systems with specialization in glass based non-woven solutions and the most complete range of coated & uncoated technologies.

Samples of veils, fabrics, mats and end-use applications will be displayed at company booth G71 in hall 3.1 during the show.

New Sustaina® surfacing and reinforcing glass non-woven solutions for residential and commercial building applicationsAfter a successful launch in North America, Owens Corning is bringing its new Sustaina® surfacing and reinforcing glass non-woven solutions to the European residential & commercial building market.

This new technology helps meet legislation requirements on indoor air quality (IAQ) in product-applications, supporting customers as they move towards more sustainable solutions. The product contains a bio-based, formaldehyde-free binder system and delivers higher tensile strength performance versus traditional products.

Patented LOC 90 degree Ultrapipe® fabric design for cure in place pipe (CIPP) sewer and pressure applicationsWith its long oriented chops (LOC) fabrics, the Ultrapipe® range is expanding into a very large portfolio addressing all trenchless (no-dig) CIPP sewer and pressure applications. LOC fabrics constructions (0 degree and 90 degree direction) provide high stretch-ability for all liner types made with folding, stitching & winding processes, combined with an increased stiffness and strength properties. The Ultrapipe® enhanced UV curing performance allows larger diameter, thicker laminate constructions.

All solutions are direct outcomes of Owens Corning's continued investment to develop innovative industry-specific capabilities to meet the current and emerging trends of our customers.
