With the aim to increase capacity and reach more flexibility with larger and wider rolls, Saint-Gobain Adfors has invested in a new, more efficient and more sustainable coated glass mat production line in its plant in Gorlice/Poland.  
Coated glass mats are high value-added products, where the glass mat is coated with a proprietary mineral paste to bring new properties, such as UV resistance, water repellency, acoustic properties, fire resistance, etc.  
One of the main current applications is to enhance the performance of gypsum boards by replacing their typical paper cover and making the board more resistant to UV or damp conditions – critical properties to use the board as external sheathing or as tile backer board in humid environments.  
Demand for these high-added value boards has been growing rapidly worldwide, driven by lighter and more efficient construction methods.
Focused mainly on the sustainable construction, industrial and mobility markets, Saint-Gobain Adfors, the Industrial Fabrics Business unit of Saint-Gobain S.A., La Défense/France, offers glass fiber materials and a complete range of textiles and coating technologies. Customized innovative technical textiles are developed together with the customers to reinforce or face their final products.
