PPG Industries’ HYBON fiber glass roving products have gained certification from Germanischer Lloyd, for use in the wind energy industry.

The certification includes HYBON 2001, 2002, 2006 and high-performance 2026 fiber glass rovings. It applies to products manufactured at all five PPG fiber glass locations – three in the United States; one in Wigan, England, U.K.; and one in Zibo, Shandong Province, China, that is a joint venture of PPG and Sinoma Jinjing Fiber Glass Co. Ltd.
