News International-French

8 Oct 2012

Johns Manville (JM), a market-leading manufacturer of glass fiber products, today announced the introduction of MultiStar® 819 roving developed for spray-up applications. MultiStar® 819 will be made available regionally in Europe from the company’s manufacturing operation in Trnava, Slovakia, where it was developed using new processing technology.  

MultiStar® 819 roving, designed to meet ever-more-demanding sustainability targets, is characterized by an excellent chopping behavior with very low antistatic, which improves the dosing consistency during the spray-up application. The sizing has been designed for fast wet-out behavior to increase productivity.


Mauro Malanchini, sales leader JM’s Fibers Europe business, stated, "This new development further strengthens the MultiStar® product portfolio already in use for SMC (sheet molding compounds), panel moulding, LFI (long-fiber injection) for PU reinforcements, and weaving operations in Europe with more than a dozen product offerings in assembled rovings.“
