“This plant represents an opportunity for fiberglass or glass wool manufacturers in Europe, China and India to capture more of their region’s growing local demand at a fraction of the cost and time it would take to build a new production line."
Hamilton, NJ (PRWEB) June 25, 2013
International Process Plants has a glass wool/fiberglass production plant available for immediate sale to be used as is or relocated elsewhere. The plant can produce more than 20 types of tissue products that are used to make glass wool insulation and fiberglass insulation for buildings, vessels, road infrastructure, as well as insulation used in battery separators and panels put in various types of machines.
According to a 2012 study by Industry Experts, global demand for fiberglass insulation has been growing steadily and was forecasted to grow at CAGR rates above 6% through 2016. Healthy construction markets in India, China and Russia, new regulation standards for energy consumption by buildings in the EU, and increased market acceptance of emerging applications, such as in framing materials, are driving this growth.
The fiberglass manufacturing process is the most common wet method, produces up to 50MM square meters per year of glass wool tissue products that weigh from 50 to 120 grams per square meter, are 105 to 210 cm wide, 0.3 to 1.0 mm thick and could be used to produce composite materials such as a blend of glass and polyester fiber.
“This plant represents an opportunity for fiberglass or glass wool manufacturers in Europe, China and India to capture more of their region’s growing local demand at a fraction of the cost and time it would take to build a new production line. It’s also an opportunity for global building product manufacturers, companies like Armstrong and USG here in the US, Momentive and Guardian in Europe, Visaka in India, to vertically integrate their supply chains or broaden their product lines by incorporating the varieties of fiberglass this plant produced in new products,” says Michael Joachim, IPP Director of Plants.
