Owens Corning has launched the first Technical Fabrics Guide for industrial, marine and leisure applications.

This new, free tool includes a material calculator and can be downloaded now from the App Store and Google Play Store app.

According to Owens Corning, the Technical Fabrics Guide includes product characteristics, benefits and resin compatibilities for more than 80 products available in the European market. Featured products encompass unidirectionals, biaxials, multiaxials, various combinations, complexes, specialty mats and woven roving fabrics.

Owens Corning explains the Technical Fabrics Guide is designed to assist customers, designers and engineers in discovering Owens Corning’s full range of fabric solutions to meet their particular end-use needs.

The company states the app material calculator enables users to estimate thickness for a laminate of a single product depending on the weight and fabric construction or, conversely, the glass content in a laminate to help identify the optimum solution for a given application. Results can be saved as “favourites” for future reference or used to send a request for additional information or a quotation.

Additional features include a “Fabrics Terminology” section defining 74 key terms such as, Drapability, Twill, Shear Angle, as well as a “News” section and the ability to save products in a “Favorites” list.

The Technical Fabrics Guide is Owens Corning’s second Composites App, after joining the OptiSpray Solutions Benefits App released in 2013. There are also two Owens Corning Apps available in support of Building Materials products.
