Johns Manville (Trnava, Slovak Republic) will introduce at JEC Europe 2013 a new engineered reactive glass fiber for improved performance in structural thermoplastic composites. This technology development has enabled products such as StarRov RXN886, which is ready for testing for use in the inmold caprolactam polymerization process. StarRov RXN 886 maximizes glass-matrix bonding, resulting in improvements in strength, multi-axial impact, aging performance, and dimensional stability of polyamide-6-based structural composites. The technology and product is ready for testing by customers in a variety of processes, including TP-RTM, TP-RIM, TP-pultrusion and TP-filament winding. Also new from Johns Manville is ThermoFlow 674 and 601, for glass reinforcements in polyamide and PBT/PET engineered thermoplastics, respectively. These materials were developed to reinforce engineered plastics in compliance with COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) No 10/2011 of 14 January 2011 on plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food.
