S-A E-glass Multi-End continuous Rovings are reinforcements for sheet molding compound (SMC). These products are designed for a wide range of structural or pigmentable polyester compression molded applications. SMC applications include automotive exterior body panels with Class A surfaces, recreational vehicle housings, automotive and recreational semi-structural applications, water- tank panels, and business equipment.

S-A Multi-End rovings are manufactured to meet ISO 9001 standards. S-A rovings are produced from a collection of continuous glass filaments gathered, without mechanical twisting into a single bundle. The filaments, which make up the bundles, are bonded together with a special size. Multiple bundles are then pulled together to form a strand. The strand is wound into a tubeless package that is ready for use in customer applications.

Packaging

Pallet height, cm (in) 99 (39) or 127 (50), Pallet length, cm (in) 112 (44), Pallet width, cm (in) 112 (44), 48-roll pallet weight, kg (lb) 816 (1799), 64-roll pallet weight, kg (lb) 1088 (2399)

S-A Multi-End continuous Roving is available in a single end internal pull package. Each pallet contains four layers with 16 doffs per layer (64 per pallet) or three layers with 16 doffs per layer (48 per pallet). Doffs are available in weights 17kg (37.5 lb), and are wrapped in a plastic bag, then packed in a cardboard box. All pallets have ends that are air-spliced together. 4-end or 16-end run-outs are available dependent upon specific customer requirements.

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.
