Multi-end roving designed to transform translucent panel applications, such as skylights, cladding and greenhouses

Owens Corning : 02 April, 2011  (New Product)
Thinner panel provides superior clarity and enables higher glass content for strength and stiffness using less resin
Owens Corning has introduced OC HiLight multi-end roving for translucent panels. It is made with Advantex E-CR glass and features a proprietary sizing that delivers unmatched clarity. OC HiLight is designed for use in applications including skylights, cladding, greenhouses and other architectural applications.

Higher glass content in finished laminates delivers strength and stiffness and requires less resin in a thinner panel. This translates to lower costs for manufacturers.

Designed for unsaturated polyester resin panel applications, OC HiLight roving achieves improved translucence by minimising the appearance of white fibres, avoiding air entrapment and reducing light distortion.

“OC HiLight roving offers many advantages to laminate panel manufacturers, starting with outstanding translucence, optical quality and light transmission,” said Hans van der Steen, Product Leader for chopped strand mat and assembled rovings in Europe and Asia Pacific . “The product works well in different processes and gives designers more flexibility with complex and decorative shapes. We are confident that the properties of this innovative product will drive use of translucent panels in a broad range of energy-efficient building applications.
