Glass fiber specialist Owens Corning says that it has introduced its Foamglas cellular glass to the North American market.

The material has been developed for use in commercial roofs to provide stability to the roof membrane even under sustained stress. It can also support rooftop equipment such as solar assemblies, the company said.

Foamglas insulation has improved compressive strength and is fire resistant and impervious to moisture.
