PPG Industries’ (Pittsburgh, PA, US) fiber glass business is introducing at CAMX HYBON 2052 direct draw roving, designed for high- and low-pressure epoxy pipe applications and pressure vessels and compatible with amine- and anhydride-cured epoxy resin systems. HYBON 2052 is available in E-Glass and E-CR Glass compositions. PPG says the tailored chemistry, which uses an alkyl phenol ethoxylate (APE)-free sizing system, offers excellent fiber/matrix interfacial hydrolysis resistance and strength retention. These products are currently produced in the U.S. and are globally available in various TEX/YIELD options in filament diameters ranging from 16 microns to 23 microns.
