Johns Manville (JM), manufacturer of Evalith glass and polyester fibre nonwovens, will introduce the ‘JM Path of Innovation’, a range of nonwovens innovations, at its trade fair booth at the Techtextil show in Frankfurt.

As a novelty, JM will present an innovative nonwoven with a special coating for digital and direct printing, which it says is ideally suited as a decorative and reinforcement layer for thin and light wood based materials. Self-reinforcing polyester spunbonds and also glass/polymer hybrid nonwovens for applications in thermoplastic composites used in mould constructions as well as materials with flame retarding or antimicrobial properties for the automotive, filtration or construction sector will also be exhibited.

“One of our focal points will be honeycomb structures made of pressed nonwovens which evidence excellent acoustic properties in light constructions,” JM said today.

JM will also exhibit hybrid nonwovens for flooring, wall and ceiling applications demanding a high degree of smooth and even surfaces and display outstanding haptics.

“Binder-free, non-flammable glass fiber needled mats by JM distinguish themselves with their temperature resistance of up to 500°C and will also be presented at the booth, along with the latest nonwoven developments for air liquid filtration – a segment where JM is one of the leading suppliers,” a JM spokesperson said.

“It is with special pride that JM is exhibiting at the booth a non-flammable A2 rated material composite developed in cooperation with a customer and intended for use as a decorative board for ventilated curtain facades.”

And, last but not least, the Johns Manville e-Commerce portal introduced in 2013 will be presented to a broad audience for the first time.

Johns Manville, a Berkshire Hathaway company, is a leading manufacturer and marketer of premium-quality building and specialty products. Founded in 1858, the Denver-based company has annual sales of approximately $2.5 billion and holds leadership positions in all of the key markets that it serves. Johns Manville employs approximately 7,000 people and operates 45 manufacturing facilities in North America, Europe and China.
