News International-French

5 Mar 2013

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.
