JEC World 2022 DAY 1: Passion and challenges lead the innovation to the future
Johns Manville, a Berkshire Hathaway Company, recently launched a new Advanced Composites Brand, Neomera, with the first products being thermoplastic organosheets.
Neomera Organosheets are produced in a continuous process through the impregnation of various reinforcements with low viscosity caprolactam monomer, followed by the in situ anionic polymerization of caprolactam to form the thermoplastic polyamide 6 matrix.
Agesia, a De Roeve Industries company, develops production technology and thermoplastic products to construct light, strong and recyclable transportation equipment. Using JM Neomera organosheets, Agesia is able to offer innovative yet affordable thermoplastic solutions in applications where steel and thermoset products fail.
Agesia panels consist of a PET core sandwiched between two JM Neomera Organosheets. The continuous production process allows the panels to be formed to shape as well as structural. The panels are suitable for applications in transportation, aerospace, automotive and marine.
The webinar will bring to life the solutions Agesia has developed and designed for the intermodal container industry and are based around Agesia’s new thermoplastic structural lightweight sandwich panels. The solution reduces the weight of container roofs by 75% and allows the product to perform with deformation under vacuum release.
