Johns Manville Europe GmbH (Bad Homburg, Germany) recently introduced ThermoFlow 600, a specially developed, densified chopped strand for polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) compounds. The company claims that the product's strand integrity promotes better fiber flow into the extruder and, therefore, more even fiber distribution within compounds, resulting in more consistent performance properties in molded products. The product's color performance permits critical color matching in pigmented matrices. It is available in 4-mm/0.16-inch length in 10 to 13 fiber diameters, suitable for use in various electrical and electronic thermoplastic applications, such as connectors, housings, relays, switches and motor end caps. jm.gocomp.biz/12
