AGY has expanded its product portfolio with the acquisition of Owens Corning’s range of S-Glass products and the scale up of S-1 HM glass fibre production in conjunction with China Taishan Glass (CTG).
“Our range of high performance products has increased with the introduction of a number of new products we have developed and brought to the market such as S-3 HDI and S-3 UHM glass fibre fine yarns. And, with our recent acquisition of the S-glass range of products, we feel AGY has a great portfolio of materials to meet the needs of a number of key markets. AGY has been working diligently to ensure the smooth handover of S-Glass for Owens Corning’s customers. AGY is now also sampling a number of customers with S-1 HM glass material produced in the CTG’s new furnace facility constructed in Taishan, China,” commented Patrick Burns, President & CEO.
The portfolio of products includes S-2 Glass, S-1 Glass, S-1 HM glass, S-3 HPB glass yarns, S-3 HDI glass fine yarns, S-3 UHM glass, S-Glass, L-Glass yarns, ZenTron rovings, VeTron rovings, and E-Glass fine yarns.
“The expanded portfolio will come at a time when AGY is moving into new markets and seeing growth in a number of existing market areas. This ability to offer a number of solutions to the customer base will be a great help. AGY has demonstrated great success with our ability to take information about the needs of our customers and translate it into the right material solutions. With this expanded portfolio, AGY will continue offering the right high performance material into a number of key markets,” said Iain Montgomery, Director of New Business Development.
