D1-A, D2-A, D4-A and D5-A E-glass direct rovings or single-end continuous rovings are designed for use in filament winding, pultrusion and weaving applications in polyester, vinyl ester or epoxy resin systems. Typical products include pultrusion profiles such as window frames, ladders, telecommunication cables and gratings. High-voltage insulating rods, tanks and pipes, etc. are also included.

All direct roving is manufactured to meet ISO 9001 standards. These direct rovings are produced by pulling individual fibers directly from the bushing and then winding them onto a roving package ready for shipment. The uniform distribution of a proprietary sizing system assures an excellent resin-to-glass binding through uniform distribution of the binding agent. A direct roving process represents the optimum technology in forming glass fiber and results in maximum strand integrity.

Storage

Unless otherwise specified, it is recommended to store glass fiber products in a cool, dry area.

Temperature should not exceed 35°C (95°F) and the relative humidity should be kept below 75%. Glass roving products must remain in packaging material until just prior to its use. If these conditions are respected, the glass fiber product should not undergo significant changes when stored for extended periods of time.

Stacking

To ensure safety and avoid damage to the product, skids should not be stacked more than two high. When stacking two pallets high, care should be taken to correctly and smoothly place the top pallet.
