May 27, 2003: Johns Manville Introduces New Acoustic Insulation Line
"After completing months of development, we are pleased to announce the roll-out of this next generation of products. Our ability to meet the market's need for formaldehyde-free acoustic insulation products is a major part of our marketing strategy," stated Erika Williams, business manager for Johns Manville.
Whispertone® Wallboard XG is manufactured through the combination of fibers bonded with a special formaldehyde-free thermosetting resin to produce structurally rigid board-type insulation, says the company. With a smooth surface and white in color, the product is available in either plain or with a Dura-Glass® mat facing. Applications include HVAC equipment insulation.
Microlite® XG fiber glass equipment insulation is a lightweight and resilient blanket-type thermal and acoustical insulation made of flame-attenuated glass fibers bonded with a formaldehyde-free thermosetting resin, the company says. It can be used for a variety of appliance and equipment applications that require high thermal and acoustical efficiency in a minimal space, says the manufacturer.
