Michelman to display sizing solutions at JEC World
Michelmanwill display its portfolio of water-based fibre sizing solutions at JEC World 2020 during March 3-5, 2020, including Hydrosize, its versatile line of fibre sizings that allows customers to tailor the surface chemistry of reinforcement fibres to the chemistry of the matrix resin, optimising the interface adhesion between the polymers and fibres.
This improved interface adhesion helps fibre producers and composite manufacturers produce stronger, lighter, and more durable composite parts.
“We offer a diverse selection of sizing solutions optimised for a broad range of thermoplastic and thermoset resins, including high-temperature matrices. Our fibre sizings can be applied during the manufacturing process of chopped or continuous strand fibreglass, carbon fibre, natural fibres, and fillers, or can be post-applied when making non-wovens and composite pre-pregs,” Michelman said.
Part of Michelman’s Hydrosize brand family, Hydrosize Carbon, allows customers to leverage carbon fibre’s unique benefits. The Hydrosize Carbon series offers a wide variety of solutions depending on resin compatibility, fibre type, and desired composite performance.
Gilles LeMoigne, regional marketing manager, EMEA, is presenting the “Effect of Sizing on the Interfacial and Mechanical Properties of Carbon Fibre (CF) Reinforced Polyamide (PA6,6) Composites” during JEC’s technical conference.
