Print |


Our goal is to be the fiberglass supplier of choice to our customers. The ability to provide our customers with both reinforcement and yarn products enables us to serve a broad range of customers around the world.

Since 1952, PPG has been serving the fiberglass industry, and our customers have been growing and expanding their businesses to meet the needs of the industry, the marketplace and the expanded use of fiberglass composites.

Here are some recent news stories about our customers and the recognition that are receiving from the industry and the media:

PPG, Polystrand and SANLUIS Rassini Collaborate

With goals of accelerated development and freedom of design, Polystrand, in partnership with PPG Fiber Glass and SANLUIS Rassini (Mexico City, Mexico), is preparing a vehicle to compete in the Grand Touring Lite (GTL) classification in the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA). GT cars are purpose-built, highly-modified replicas of series-produced sport sedans. The class rules offer great freedom of construction by allowing one-off chassis designs, use of alternate materials and a multitude of drivetrain and suspension options.
