Karl Mayer and John Manville will both exhibit again at Techtextil 2013.
Karl Mayer at Techtextil 2013 presents new products in the areas of noise and shading,
including the product “OMBRA-DLS”. The textile can regulate the diffusion of light and air. It consists of a stretchable knitted mesh fabric. By stretching and relaxation, the light diffusion of the sunshade fabric can be adjusted. The company also presents a spacer fabric which was developed for noise reduction. Together with the Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics, a knitted fabric was developed which is characterized by improved draping and light weight.
Johns Manville brings a new glass mat with a specially developed coating for digital and direct pressure. This material can be used as decoration and reinforcement layer for thin and light wood-based panels. Furthermore, the company presents binder-free, non-flammable fiberglass needle mats. The temperature resistance of this material is up to 500 ° C. In this area, Johns Manville also developed a non-combustible A2 classified material composition, which comes as a decorative panel for ventilated curtain facades.
