October 5th, 2015 by

AIKEN, SOUTH CAROLINA – (October 5, 2015) – AGY Holding Corp., a leading global producer of glass fiber yarns and high-strength glass fiber reinforcement materials, has completed capacity expansions for its S-2 Glass® and L-Glass™ specialty glass fiber product lines.

“Earlier this year, AGY announced plans to increase capacity of its specialty glass fiber products,” said Patrick Burns, President & CEO.  “I am pleased to report we have successfully completed these capacity expansions.  AGY is now well positioned to service the continued growth in demand for its S-2 Glass high performance and L-Glass low loss glass fibers.”

Compared to standard glass fibers, AGY’s S-2 Glass fibers offer superior performance in strength, stiffness, and thermal properties and are available as yarns, single-end rovings, multi-end rovings, and chopped strands.  The low dielectric constant and low dissipation factor of AGY’s L-Glass yarns are ideally suited for printed circuit boards designs requiring increased signal speeds and high signal integrity.
