- Material Calculator for more than 80 products
- To estimate thickness for a laminate or conversely glass content in a laminate
- Free App for iPhone & Android
Owens Corning launched the first Technical Fabrics Guide for industrial, marine and leisure applications. The 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. The 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 “favorites” 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 and Shear Angle.
The App can be downloaded now from the App store for iPhone and iPad devices and from Google Play Store for Android devices. Search term: “Tech Fabrics Guide” or “Composites Guide.”
The Technical Fabrics Guide is the company’s second Composites App, after joining the OptiSpray Solutions Benefits App released in 2013.
