JEC World 2018 preview: Michelman

Michelman to highlight fiber sizing’s impact on composite performance at JEC World 2018.

Michelman (Pavilion #6, Booth K83) will showcase its expanding portfolio of fiber sizing solutions at JEC World 2018 on March 6-8, 2018.

The company will showcase Hydrosize, a versatile line of fiber sizing 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. 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 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.
