Owens Corning Introduces New ME 3060 Multi-End Roving at JEC Europe

Owens Corning, a leading global producer of glass fiber reinforcements for composite systems, today introduced its new ME 3060 roving at the JEC Europe show and conferences. This new multi-end roving, used as chop, provides customers with a combination of excellent processing characteristics and enhanced final laminate surface quality.

ME 3060 roving delivers excellent processing characteristics resulting from its uniform dispersion, low fuzz and smooth laydown. It is recommended for general purpose, stitched fabrics with polyester, vinylester, or epoxy resins, and can be used for complexes in marine and industrial applications.

"ME 3060 roving allows end users to optimize their resin consumption due to excellent impregnation quality," said Dr. Sanghamitra Sircar, Owens Corning Global Product Manager for Multi-End Rovings. "In addition, the ease of chopping delivered by the ME 3060 roving can provide benefits in terms of fewer changes of chopper blades and reduced defects from long chops. Overall, these features improve productivity for our customers and end users."

ME 3060 roving also features very good surface clarity, uniform dispersion after chop, and fewer white fibers, providing high surface quality of the final laminate.

ME3060 roving is produced using Advantex® corrosion-resistant glass fibers, which combines the electrical and mechanical properties of traditional E-glass with the acid corrosion resistance of E-CR glass.

The announcement was made today at JEC Europe, the world's largest annual composites trade show held in Paris, France, where Owens Corning is exhibiting in Hall 7-2 Booth F22.
