Michelman to display fibre sizing products at JEC World
Michelman will display its expanding portfolio of fibre sizing solutions including Hydrosize, a versatile line of fibre sizing that allows customers to tailor the surface chemistry of reinforcement fibres to the chemistry of the matrix resin, thereby optimising the interface adhesion between the polymers and fibres, at JEC World 2018 during March 6-8, 2018.
The improved interface adhesion helps fibre producers and composite manufacturers produce stronger, lighter and more durable composite parts.
Michelman offers a diverse selection of sizing solutions that are optimised for a broad range of thermoplastic and thermoset resins, including high temperature matrices. The company’s fibre sizing can be applied during the manufacturing process of chopped or continuous strand fibreglass, carbon fibre, natural fibres and fillers, or post-applied when making non-wovens and composite pre-pregs.
