Owens Corning launches technical fabrics app

Glass fibre reinforcements manufacturer Owens Corning is introducing the Technical Fabrics Guide, a free app providing information about its range of fabrics for the composites industry.

The Technical Fabrics Guide includes characteristics, benefits and resin compatibilities for more than 80 Owens Corning products available in the European market. These include unidirectionals, multiaxials, combinations, speciality mats and woven roving fabrics.

A 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.

Further features include a Fabrics Terminology section and a News section.

The app can be downloaded from the App store for iPhone and iPad devices and from Google Play™ Store app for devices for Android™ (search for Tech Fabrics Guide or Composites Guide).

  • The Technical Fabrics Guide is Owens Corning’s second composites app, joining the OptiSpray™ Solutions Benefits app released in 2013.
