PPG Industries has introduced HYBON 2026 fibre glass roving, for use in wind energy and other global markets. This product enables manufacturers to make larger wind turbine blades, which could help to increase turbines’ energy output.

Manufactured by PPG at five 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 – HYBON 2026 fibre glass roving reinforces composites used to create longer, lighter turbine blades.

According to PPG, HYBON 2026 has been designed to work with a variety of resin systems, providing customers with versatility in design and engineering.

“Customers have reported higher tensile strength and fatigue performance when using HYBON 2026,” says Cheryl Richards, PPG global market manager, wind energy. “It achieves these results in both epoxy and next-generation-technology vinyl ester resins.”
