“MultiStar 277 comes close on the success of our new multipurpose product MultiStar 267, which we launched in 2006,“ said Per-Olof Algotsson, European Reinforcements business director for Johns Manville’s Engineered Products Group (EPG). “Since being launched at JEC composites exhibition in 2006, MultiStar 267 has been well received in the market and is rapidly becoming the preferred material for multipurpose SMC moulding applications targeted at the automotive, industrial and electrical industries.”
Johns Manville say that MultiStar 277 delivers a Class A surface when formulated for auto exterior applications.
”The launch of MultiStar 277 further extends our leadership in the European SMC market,” said Michael Huff, vice president and general manager of Global Reinforcements for Johns Manville’s Engineered Products Group (EPG). ” As industry players consolidate, expansion of our MultiStar product line with the addition of MultiStar 277, is a great example of our independent commitment to the global reinforcements industry.”
