Owens-Corning Fiberglas Corp. said Friday that it has agreed to purchase Armco Inc.'s Newport Beach-based aerospace and strategic materials group for $415 million in cash. Sales of fiberglass and building materials now account for nearly 75% of the 47-year-old company's business. The move would make the Toledo, Ohio-based fiberglass giant less vulnerable to swings in the fiberglass insulation market, which in turn is heavily dependent on the housing industry.
