Owens Corning offers a wide range of glass tissues for wall covering applications
From their initial introduction as a technical solution for reinforcing mineral walls, glass non-wovens have grown to a modern and fashionable wall covering material.
Owens Corning specialty glass non-wovens are ideally suited to match the technical and aesthetical requirements of builders, painters, architects and the end-user.
In their introduction into the wall covering market, the use of glass tissues was mainly driven by their capability to reinforce mineral walls, to cover cracks in the plaster layer, or to limit the development of cracks. An additional positive side effect of using glass non-wovens as wall covering material is related to the improvement in fire performance they can bring.
Over the last couple of years, glass non-wovens were still mainly used because of their technical advantages, but increasingly, architects and consumers are realizing the aesthetical advantages this solution brings to the wall: smooth surfaces with a very fine structure - pleasing to the eye, robust and enduring.
Specialty non-wovens are specifically well-suited to match the needs of the wall covering market. Our proprietary manufacturing technology leads to a very fine, smooth, and uniform structure of our non-wovens – highly aesthetic and, due to the wide range of our portfolio – fulfilling the vast majority of technical requirements.
Owens Corning offers a wide variety of standard products for the wall covering industry as well as a growing number of products which are specifically engineered to customer requests.
