JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
JEC Europe 2013 -Johns Manville, a leading manufacturer and marketer of premium-quality building and specialty products, will present its new, pioneering engineered reactive glass fibres developed for improved performance in structural thermoplastic composites.
Innovative products, such as StarRov® RXN 886, will be introduced for the in-mould caprolactam polymerization process. The new product maximizes glass-matrix bonding, resulting in improved strength, multi-axial impact, ageing performance, and dimensional stability of polyamide-6 based structural composites. The product can be used in a variety of processes, including TP-RTM, TP-RIM, TP-pultrusion, and TP-filament winding.
Johns Manville will also present new applications where ThermoFlow® chopped strands are used in polyamides and polypropylene. Additionally, automotive applications using MultiStar® 272 roving for SMC and StarRov® LFTPlus 490 contributing to lower odour LFT applications will be displayed. For the building and construction segment, high structural profiles using StarRov® 908 roving will be presented.
