Owens Corning will further invest in the composite materials industry in the Americas by expanding glass fibre reinforcement capacity at its Amarillo, Texas, facility in 2008.

The expansion will increase the company’s ability to meet market demand in North America for Advantex single-end roving products — highly engineered composite materials for multiple high-performance applications.

“”Our OCV Reinforcements division is investing in the future of the North American composites industry so that we can meet the growing market demand for glass fibre reinforcement products,”” said Chuck Dana, president of Composite Solutions. “”This expansion will ensure the local supply of Owens Corning Advantex single-end roving products for our customers in the Americas, while improving manufacturing productivity.””

The expansion of the Amarillo, Texas, facility will increase its capacity to produce single-end roving products by about 40 percent. Advantex single-end roving products are designed to provide superior performance over standard “”E”” glass in highly corrosive applications like pipes, tanks, grating, cooling towers, and others servicing the energy, mining, infrastructure, and industrial end-use markets.
