Fiber-sizing-MichelmanMichelman will showcase its expanding portfolio of water-based fiber sizing solutions at JEC World 2020 on March 3-5, 2020, including Hydrosize®, its versatile line of fiber sizings that allows customers to tailor the surface chemistry of reinforcement fibers to the chemistry of the matrix resin, thereby optimizing the interface adhesion between the polymers and fibers.

Sizing Solutions for Different Resins

This improved interface adhesion helps fiber producers and composite manufacturers produce stronger, lighter, and more durable composite parts.

Michelman offers a diverse selection of sizing solutions optimized for a broad range of thermoplastic and thermoset resins, including high-temperature matrices. Its fiber sizings can be applied during the manufacturing process of chopped or continuous strand fiberglass, carbon fiber, natural fibers, and fillers, or can be post-applied when making non-wovens and composite pre-pregs.

Hydrosize® Carbon for a Wide Variety of Solutions

Part of Michelman’s Hydrosize brand family, Hydrosize® Carbon, allows customers to leverage carbon fiber’s unique benefits.

The Hydrosize® Carbon series offers a wide variety of solutions depending on:

  • Resin compatibility
  • Fiber type
  • Desired composite performance

Additionally, Gilles LeMoigne, Regional Marketing Manager, EMEA, is presenting the “Effect of Sizing on the Interfacial and Mechanical Properties of Carbon Fiber (CF) Reinforced Polyamide (PA6,6) Composites” during JEC’s technical conference.
