May 27, 2003: Johns Manville Introduces New Acoustic Insulation Line

DENVER — The Performance Materials Division of Johns Manville has announced the launch of Acoustic XG™, its new line of formaldehyde-free acoustic insulation products. According to the company, the products provide excellent acoustical performance in residential, commercial, and industrial applications.

"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.
