Johns Manville to Showcase Three New Rovings at JEC World 2016

Johns Manville (JM) has introduced three new rovings: MultiStar 566 for panel and fabrics reinforcements; StarRov 090 for reinforcement of composites profiles; and StarRov 089 for reinforcements of styrene-free resins.

According to JM, these new offerings will serve the building and construction, sporting goods and wind energy markets and will be introduced at JEC World.

“JM innovates and develops new products based on customer feedback and partnerships,” said Brian Sapp, Global Fibres Business Director for JM Engineered Products. “These new products capitalise on JM’s professional expertise in technical service, innovation and commercialisation and build on with 50 years of roving manufacturing experience in Europe,”

New product highlights:

  • MultiStar 566 for thermoset reinforcements delivers improved feeding and chopping with excellent translucency for panel applications and flat homogeneous mat layout for fabric processing with fast resin impregnation.
  • StarRov 090 for reinforcement of composites profiles is multi-compatible with Epoxy, unsaturated polyester and vinylester resins with good wet-out performances. It is designed for profile and filament winding fabrication.
  • StarRov 089 for reinforcements of styrene-free resins has demonstrated excellent inter-laminar shear strength (ILSS) and improved modulus performance. Styrene-free resin systems enables manufacturers to become better environmental stewards, meet regulatory standards, and increase lamination productivity to be used in wind energy or demanding composites applications.

JM will be exhibiting in Hall 6, Stand F32.
