AGY has increased production output of its S-2 Glass fibre reinforcements by twenty percent with the capability to further increase its output as market demands dictate. This expansion enables AGY to meet the expected growth in both aerospace and industrial markets for high-performance glass fibres used for composite reinforcement.
AGY glass fibre reinforcements are supplied to a wide variety of markets and end use applications around the world. In the aerospace industry, S-2 Glass fibres offer unique reinforcement properties that are critical to high performance aerospace applications such as helicopter blades, aircraft flooring, interiors, and structural parts.
AGY offers S-2 Glass fiber products that are designed to be compatible with phenolics, epoxies, polyesters, vinyl esters, rubber as well as many thermoplastic resins. S-2 Glass has tensile strength that exceeds that of standard-modulus carbon fibre as well as most grades of aramid fiber. Because S-2 Glass fiber has a high strain-to-failure of 5.7 percent (compared to aramid’s 2.8 percent and carbon’s 1.5 percent) it has an exceptional ability to withstand high impact events.
With these increases, AGY hopes to stay ahead of the market demand.

The AGY Mission
AGY Strength in Materials
AGY is a growing and innovative company, which has focused on its strength in materials. Strength in materials doesn’t just refer to the inherent strength of the high performance materials we produce everyday. In fact, that is only a small part of the strengths we provide to our customers and to the end use markets that we serve.
The New AGY has built its strength in materials strategy around three key components, being a materials solutions provider, a strong customer focus and creating and motivating a world class team.
Being a materials solutions provider is all about developing tailored products for our customers that offer them competitive advantage in the marketplace. AGY has a unique portfolio of products to make the materials solutions concept a reality for customers with a multi dimensional approach to the way that AGY delivers value leadership to its customers. AGY differentiates its products along three major axes, glass chemistry, coating technology and product form bringing a selection of unique features such as small flexible manufacturing platforms, tailored sizings to improve application performance and forming and fabrication process know how to improve quality and performance.
As one of the world’s few independent glass fiber producers with a proven track record our goal is to delight our customers through a commitment to product quality and innovation delivering enhanced process technology, new product development and customer technical service.
AGY has assembled a world class team. AGY employees bring many years of experience in fibreglass yarns and high performance materials.
Materials solutions, customer focus and a world class team. These are the strengths of the NEW AGY on which we are building our future.
