"Our products offer high dimensional stability in different thermal conditions and ensure a very good paste penetration thanks to their open structure."

Johns Manville (JM) is welcoming visitors to its 100 square-meter booth at the Techtextil Show in Frankfurt, Germany (E79, hall 3.1), taking place May 9-12. The company, which produces a wide range of technical nonwovens for building & construction, filtration, energy storage and composites at 11 facilities in Germany, the United States and China, will present a wide variety of topics at the event. 

“Luxury vinyl tiles are a modern flooring material that’s very popular. We have developed a couple of tailor-made glass fiber nonwovens for this application,” said Martin Kleinebrecht, Portfolio Management & Marketing Leader at Johns Manville. “Our products offer high dimensional stability in different thermal conditions and ensure a very good paste penetration thanks to their open structure.”

For the extremely dynamic field of composites, JM offers special glass fiber nonwovens that are successfully used to enhance the performance of stiff and light-weight components.

Besides those glass fiber-based products, JM will display three components for polyester (PET) nonwovens: Bico-polyester nonwovens that are used as filter media or as carriers for automotive cabin air filtration; a two-layered PET nonwoven for engine air intake, which combines extraordinary dust-holding capacity with high stiffness; and needled PET nonwovens, which are utilized both as highly resistant geotextiles as well as filtration products with excellent efficiency and burst-strength. 

“With our broad technology portfolio and our significant market coverage, we expect a wide variety of exciting discussions in our booth,” said Kleinebrecht.
