AGY and CTG/Taishan Launch Production of s-1 HM Glass Fibre

AGY and CTG/Taishan Launch Production of s-1 HM Glass Fibre

AGY has announced the start of production of S-1 HM glass in conjunction with CTG/Taishan Fiberglass. 

The companies explain the material was developed by AGY and will be produced by CTG/Taishan Fiberglass to fill the cost and performance gap between traditional E-Glass products and higher performance glasses such as AGY’s S-2 Glass  products. 

 “We are looking forward to working with AGY and producing S-1 HM glass,” said Mr. Zhiyao Tang, Chairman and President of CTG/Taishan Fiberglass.

S-1 HM glass was developed primarily for the wind energy market with input from blade and turbine manufactures. While AGY and CTG/Taishan Fiberglass are targeting the wind energy market with S-1 HM, they both believe the material has potential for many other industrial applications.

“Since S-1 HM glass is mechanically superior to E-Glass, but much less expensive than the extremely high-end glasses, we feel that S-1 HM will be an excellent fit for composite manufacturers in a wide variety of markets,” said Drew Walker, CEO of AGY.
