Michelman on Lightweighting at Future of Composites in Transportation Symposium and Exhibition

July 02 2018

Exhibiting at The Future of Composites in Transportation Symposium and Exhibition being held by the JEC Group, Michelman introduced visitors to its portfolio of fiber sizing solutions that help the transportation industry exploit the benefits of composites: design freedom, consolidation of parts, and integration of functionality while meeting its lightweighting initiatives. The event took place on June 27-28, 2018 in Chicago, IL.

Michelman fiber sizings are available for a variety of application types, and dramatically improve fiber-polymer interface adhesion. This allows the replacement of heavier alternatives with lightweight composite components.

Featured products included select Hydrosize Link grades, a family of polyurethane dispersions developed as a fiber sizing specifically for under-the-hood applications.

Michelman also highlighted its portfolio of Hydrosize grades for use with recycled carbon fibers. These include Hydrosize U2-04, Hydrosize HP3-02, Hydrosize PA845H and Hydrosize HP-1632. Michelman offers a diverse selection of sizing solutions that are optimized for a broad range of thermoplastic and thermoset resins, including high temperature matrices. The company’s fiber sizing can be applied during the manufacturing process of chopped or continuous strand fiberglass, carbon fiber, natural fibers and fillers, or post-applied when making non-wovens and composite pre-pregs.
