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.

“The certification verifies that HYBON fiber glass products exceed the requirements put forth by GL,” says Cheryl Richards, PPG Global Market Manager. “PPG will continue to support and surpass the demanding requirements of this growing and emerging industry for customers and applications worldwide,” adds Richards.
