Johns Manville to Showcase New Products at NPE2018

DENVER - Monday, May 7, 2018 – Johns Manville (JM), a market-leading manufacturer of continuous filament glass fiber and a Berkshire Hathaway company, will showcase new products at the upcoming NPE2018: The Plastics Show in Orlando, Fla.

“Johns Manville recently introduced several new products such as ThermoFlow® 641 for polypropylene and StarRov® 895 for structural thermoplastics made from polyamides that our team will promote at NPE2018,” said Brian Sapp, Global Fibers Business Director for JM Engineered Products.

“Our team will also exhibit an innovative composites tube made with AP Nylon Organosheet Tape Winding. This novelty technology has the benefits of achieving high strength fabric-based PA6 organosheets with tailored orientations that are ready for winding, laying and moulding.”

Customers and suppliers can meet Johns Manville representatives at S31199.

Johns Manville will also use NPE2018 to celebrate 160 years in business. The company started in 1858 as a roofing company after Henry Ward Johns created a roofing shingle in the basement of his New York City home. His company later merged with a company owned by Charles Manville. Today, JM holds leadership positions in the key markets it serves for thermal and acoustical insulation, waterproofing, filtration, flooring, drywall, wall coverings and glass fiber composites.

JM products help create more comfortable environments; improve the energy-efficiency and durability of buildings; enhance indoor air quality; reduce noise; and improve fire resistance, among other things. Application of JM products include reinforcing waterproofing membranes and roofing shingles; strengthening wind energy blades; insulating aircrafts; and helping to lighten automobiles to reduce CO2 emissions.

“Johns Manville has a rich history of innovation and leadership in the global markets we serve,” Sapp said. “We provide supply security and continually strive to deliver positive JM Experiences to our customers. These experiences and our drive to innovate in everything we do gives JM a competitive advantage that helps our partners succeed.”
