Johns Manville Launches JM Spider Plus Blow-In Insulation

Johns Manville announced the launch of JM Spider Plus blow-in insulation, a re-engineered blow-in system and the latest addition to the industry’s most complete line of insulation products. JM Spider Plus replaces JM Spider spray-in fiber glass insulation and is ideal for residential, commercial and manufactured buildings. JM Spider Plus is designed for installation by professionals using a blowing wool machine and features “Interlocking Fiber Technology,” JM’s latest building science innovation. Interlocking Fiber Technology allows the insulation fibers to spring and lock into cavities with no adhesive or netting. JM Spider Plus achieves an R-value of 15 in a 2x4 cavity and an R-23 in 2x6 walls. Additional performance advantages include: Smart engineering: Interlocking Fiber Technology expands into wall and overhead cavities, filling gaps and voids, and creating a shield against elements to achieve Grade 1 installation Flexible installation: Installs and dries quickly for same-day drywall installation – saving time and money Clean: Minimal dust and easy clean up on jobsites compared to other spray-in systems. JM Spider Plus is available to customers in North America immediately.

Johns Manville to Merge American, European and Asian Activities for Engineered Products into One Global Business Unit; Appoints Enno Henze to Lead Newly Created Engineered Products Business as Senior Vice President and General Manager

Johns Manville announced they would merge their American, European and Asian activities for Engineered Products into one global business unit. JM's Engineered Products business manufactures and markets premium-quality glass and polyester nonwoven products for the building and construction industry, filtration and battery separation media, reinforcement glass fibers for composites and specialty industrial glass products. The reorganization enhances the organization's ability to serve increasingly global needs in the composites, filtration and energy storage markets. Previously, JM operated two Engineered Products business units: one for the Americas and one for Europe and Asia. The realignment keeps some of the regional components, mostly within the nonwovens business, while the composites, filtration and energy storage businesses will be managed more globally. Henze will relocate to JM's global headquarters in Denver from Germany to lead the Engineered Products business. Enno Henze, who is responsible for JM's nonwovens, fibers and glass textiles businesses in Europe, as well as its nonwovens business in China, will lead the newly created Engineered Products business as Senior Vice President and General Manager.
