Johns Manville Presents Specially-Coated Glass Fiber Nonwoven at interzum 2013

JM presents at the interzum 2013 show in Cologne from May 13-16, 2013, an innovative glass fiber nonwoven with a specially-developed coating that meets the surface qualities for digital and direct printing. The material offers the advantage of significantly reduced calorific potential compared to traditional decor papers, and is therefore especially suited for HPL and CPL applications that demand higher fire classes (such as those for shipbuilding or railway interiors).

The material offers high strength and performs very well as a reinforcement of  thinner and lightweight engineered wood panels. Additionally, the material helps improve impact resistance significantly.

Johns Manville can be found at interzum 2013, hall 6.1, booth E047.
