Johns Manville Presents Structural Composites Advances at Composites Europe 2019


Johns Manville is showcasing thermoplastic composites products for lightweight applications at Composites Europe 2019 in Stuttgart, Germany.

The new technology includes:

OS-6 series – It is an AP Nylon Composites Sheet reinforced with continuous woven fabric and impregnated using JM proprietary technology with complete fiber impregnation to enhance impact resistance, strength and stiffness in thermoplastic composites.

The new CR-6 series combines formability with excellent impact resistance through a chopped roving (CR) reinforcement. This innovative product enables a range of high formability applications for thermoplastic sheets with quasi isotropic properties.

The new NCF-6 series is reinforced with high-density continuous non-crimp fabric not conventionally possible with organosheets. This leading-edge product will offer superior strength, stiffness and impact resistance in structural applications.

“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. “Our thermoplastic composite sheets combine exceptional properties, short cycle times and recyclability at a cost that will drive increased adoption of composites.”
