Michelman at SPE/ACCE: To Showcase Fiber Sizing for Reinforced Plastics

Published on 2017-08-31. Author : SpecialChem

Michelman will be exhibiting and leading a technical conference at the SPE/Automotive Composites Conference & Exhibition being held September 6-8, 2017 at the Diamond Banquet & Conference Center in Novi, MI.

Fiber Sizing for Reinforced Composites

Exhibiting in booth #213, Michelman will spotlight Hydrosize® Link, a unique polyurethane dispersion designed as fiber sizing for reinforced composites in automotive under-the-hood applications.

The new sizing is available in two grades;
  • Hydrosize Link U470 is for use with chopped strand fiber
  • Hydrosize Link U480 is suitable for both chopped strand and continuous fiber

Hydrosize Link dispersions are specifically designed to react with PA6 and PA6.6 resin matrices. They deliver exceptional composite performance under extreme exposure to water, ethylene glycol, and high temperatures, conditions increasingly typical in the narrow confines of modern engine compartments.

In addition to exhibiting, Mr. Steve Bassetti, Group Marketing Manager at Michelman will lead a presentation entitled “Fiber Sizing Fundamentals and Emerging Technologies.” The presentation will take place September 7, 2017 from 9:00 - 9:30 am in the Emerald/Amethyst Ballroom. Mr. Bassetti will discuss how sizing technology and development has played an important role in the continuous improvement of composite mechanical properties and how they can be used to improve chemical and hydrolysis resistance.
