CHAMBERY, France, June 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Owens Corning (NYSE: OC)
introduced a new glass-based solution for construction, transportation and
pipe rehabilitation during the Techtextil trade show in Frankfurt, June 11-13.
Owens Corning is a global producer of glass fiber reinforcements for composite
systems with specialization in glass based non-woven solutions and the most
complete range of coated & uncoated technologies.

Samples of veils, fabrics, mats and end-use applications will be displayed at

New Sustaina® surfacing and reinforcing glass non-woven solutions for
residential and commercial building applications
After a successful launch in North America, Owens Corning is bringing its new
Sustaina® surfacing and reinforcing glass non-woven solutions to the European
residential & commercial building market.

This new technology helps meet legislation requirements on indoor air quality
(IAQ) in product-applications, supporting customers as they move towards more
sustainable solutions. The product contains a bio-based, formaldehyde-free
binder system and delivers higher tensile strength performance versus
traditional products.

Patented LOC 90 degree Ultrapipe® fabric design for cure in place pipe (CIPP)
sewer and pressure applications
With its long oriented chops (LOC) fabrics, the Ultrapipe® range is expanding
into a very large portfolio addressing all trenchless (no-dig) CIPP sewer and
pressure applications. LOC fabrics constructions (0 degree and 90
degreedirection) provide high stretch-ability for all liner types made with
folding, stitching & winding processes, combined with an increased stiffness
and strength properties. The Ultrapipe® enhanced UV curing performance allows
larger diameter, thicker laminate constructions.

All solutions are direct outcomes of Owens Corning's continued investment to
develop innovative industry-specific capabilities to meet the current and
emerging trends of our customers.
