Starting today, Johns Manville’s Nonwovens business segment will reduce its various brand names to a new single brand name, Evalith™. The name comes from the Latin word "evalidus", which means "very strong". The company chose Evalith™ to represent the strength of its products with respect to quality, product characteristics and their versatile application fields – from glass fiber reinforced roofing membranes to air filtration.
