Thermoplastic Composite Sheets - Neomera® NCF-6 Series
Neomera® NCF-6 organosheets are based on non-crimp fabrics, offering solutions for very specific needs, depending on the fabric style. We can offer Neomera® PA-6 organosheets based on uni-directional, quadrax and eventual other fabric styles upon demand. Our proprieraty sizing we use on our glass fiber for non-crimp fabric production is unique by offering covalent bonding to the thermoplastic matrix.

What are NCF-6 organosheets?
Neomera® NCF-6 organosheets are semi finished products consisting of a non-crimped fabric impregnated with caprolactam creating a PA-6 matrix during the JM in-situ reaction process. The advantages of the thermoplastic matrix lie in the hot forming capability of the semi finished products and the resulting shorter process times compared to conventional thermoset fiber composites. This is of particular interest in the automotive industry with its short processing times. Frequently used fiber materials are glass, aramid and carbon. For non-crimped fabrics, the fibers can be e.g. all in 0° (uni-derectional), 0°/+45°/-45°/90° (quadrax), or any other design. Non-crimped fabics are not woven, but are laying on top of each other, for Neomera® NCF-6 being stitched with a glass yarn, properties are defined by the fabric design. Neomera® NCF-6 organosheets are fully recyclable and due to the unique production method having a lowe carbon footprint.

"Did you know that glass fiber and thermoplastic resin are a perfect combination for impact resistance? Johns Manville Neomera® organosheets are made with high peformance thermoplastic resin reinforced with long or continuous glass fibers; and have demonstrated superior impact resistance than metals and even carbon fiber composites."
