Johns Manville (JM), a market-leading manufacturer of continuous filament glass fibre and a Berkshire Hathaway company, is showcasing affordable thermoplastic composites products for lightweight applications at the ongoing Composites Europe 2019 show in Stuttgart, Germany. The new technology includes 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 using JM proprietary technology with complete fibre 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 polymerisation 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."

Composites Europe is a tradeshow that attracts over 300 exhibitors from 30 nations who are displaying materials, technical solutions and innovative application examples at present. Customers and suppliers are meeting Johns Manville representatives at hall 7/booth c86 – 03. (PC)
