As wood scarcity becomes more of an issue, lightweight designs are increasingly desired by furniture manufacturers. Johns Manville provides an innovative solution via our b-stage impregnated specialty glass fiber nonwovens. By reinforcing lightweight panels, weight savings of up to 30% can be achieved.
In addition to weight savings, ultra-thin particle boards are considered state-of-the-art when it comes to furniture production. And, our special b-stage nonwovens also offer higher fire protection classes for furniture and wood panels.
DPL particle boards reinforced with JM nonwovens can reach the demanding impact properties of boards produced with HPL/CPL technology – without the necessity of line investments. This can offer a significant competitive advantage.
And finally, decor printing directly onto our specially coated substrate can replace the need for decor paper.
