PPG Industries (Pittsburgh, Pa., USA) will feature at JEC Europe 2013 industry-standard products, updates on glass operations and composition research, and information on technology currently in development. Products include:

  • CHOPVANTAGE HP 3610 chopped fiber glass, an industry standard for hydrolysis-resistant polyamides in long-life coolant systems, is the first to have all of its ingredients approved for the positive list of the Commission Regulation (EU) 10/2011. The regulation establishes specific requirements applicable to the manufacture and marketing of plastic materials and articles intended to come in contact with food.
  • PPG is evaluating cast polyamide inmold caprolactam polymerization technology, which focuses on making a one-step, high-performance thermoplastic composite part with the versatility of a thermoset and the ductility and recyclability of a thermoplastic. The company unveiled the technology in January to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and Tier 1 molders and compounders at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) 2013 in Detroit.
  • The portfolio of INNOFIBER specialty glass composition fibers has been updated, and PPG will provide details on new products and updated test results for the line.
  • Recent upgrades and reinvestment in technology and equipment for the constructions of L.E.X. and TEXO texturized yarns have enabled PPG to continue offering these products to customers worldwide.
