First, I thought it might be worthwhile to give a little background information on Owens Corning, what our business is, and why we are interested in glass surfaces.
OC is now mainly a building materials company--pink insulation is the most well known OC product. In fact, OC has copyrighted the color pink for insulation. In addition, OC is the largest U.S. producer of residential roofing materials and vinyl siding.
Currently, about 20% of the OC business comes from the sale of fiber glass used as reinforcements in various thermoplastic and thermoset resins.
Everyone has their mental picture of how various sizing ingredients interact with the glass surface and with each other--we have begun to change some of those mental pictures.
