Owens Corning Builds a New Advanced Technology Facility in Gastonia, North Carolina

Owens Corning is building a new advanced technology facility in Gastonia, North Carolina, that will help meet demand for bio-based products. The new equipment will add manufacturing flexibility to produce different widths of the company's new Sustaina(R) non-woven glass fiber fabric. This will enable more customers to use the product in their applications. The new plant will be able to run four-meter widths of Sustaina(R) fabric, rather than the narrower width currently produced on existing assets.

Owens Corning Announces Two Products to its Suite of Sheet Molding Compound (SMC) Solution

Owens Corning announced two products that add to its suite of Sheet Molding Compound (SMC) solutions. Both products use Owens Corning's patented, boron-free Advantex(R) glass. Advantex(R) ME1975, a new glass fiber multi-end roving, is designed for use in SMC Class A applications in automotive and transportation markets. The global market for automotive body panels that includes passenger vehicles and heavy trucks is about 60KT. While the benefits of using composites to reduce weight are well-known, it has been difficult in the past for composites to provide good surface quality in large vertical walls. With increasing competition between auto makers, standards for Class A surface finish are becoming more stringent. ME1975 is designed with a proprietary chemistry applied on Advantex(R) glass fibers and a fiber configuration that allows higher paste viscosity in large surface areas and difficult contours. This creates a Class A surface appearance without rippling, enabling Tier 1 customers to replace metal in parts with long vertical walls without the significant rework and scrap that were characteristic of previous composites used in these applications.

Owens Corning Declares Quarterly Cash Dividend, Payable on Nov. 4, 2014

Owens Corning announced that its Board of Directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.16 per common share. The dividend will be payable on Nov. 4, 2014 to shareholders of record as of Oct. 20, 2014.
