Johns Manville (JM), which makes continuous filament glass fiber, will showcase a range of its composites technology at JEC World 2019 in Paris.

The technology includes the company’s existing OS-6 series and the new NCF-6 and CR-6 series. OS-6 series is an AP nylon composites sheet reinforced with continuous woven fabric and impregnated with complete fiber impregnation, while the new CR-6 series has a chopped roving (CR) reinforcement. The NCF-6 series is reinforced with continuous non-crimp fabric that is not conventionally possible with organosheets, JM says.

‘JM is creating a platform of nylon thermoplastic composite sheets using our innovative in-situ polymerization technology,’ said Matthew Walp, composites business leader at Johns Manville. ‘In addition to our OS-6 series introduced in years past, our new CR-6 and NCF-6- series increase design flexibility by providing product designers a collection of materials to realize light-weighting that will expand the use of composites in automotive and other lightweighting markets.’
