Johns Manville (JM) reports that its plant in Slovakia has received Good Manufacturing Practice certification for its continuous filament glass fiber (CFGF) used in contact with food in engineered thermoplastic applications, according to EU regulation 10/2011.

The certification was granted by the certification body TÜV SÜD Slovakia. This certification is the first to be granted to a European CFGF manufacturer.

JM has developed a range of CFGF grades for various engineered thermoplastics intended to come into contact with food, including ThermoFlow 674 chopped strands designed for PA and high-heat polymer reinforcements, ThermoFlow 636 and StarRov 490 for PP and ThermoFlow 601 for PBT/PET.
