Johns Manville (JM) showcase advanced composites technology including OS-6 series and the new NCF-6 and CR-6 series at the recently held JEC World 2019 in Paris.
New Composite Technologies
OS-6 series 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.
Lightweighting and Design Freedom Benefits
“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 light-weighting markets. Our thermoplastic composite sheets combine exceptional properties, short cycle times, and recyclability at a cost that will drive increased adoption of composites.”
