Michelman presents fibre sizings for automotive applications

Michelman’s surface additives and polymeric binders are used by manufacturers to enhance performance attributes and add value. © MichelmanMichelman, a leading developer and manufacturer of environmentally friendly advanced materials, will spotlight Hydrosize Link fibre sizings and resin modifiers formulated specifically for automotive applications at the Automotive Composites Conference & Exhibition (ACCE). The event is jointly sponsored by the Society of Plastic Engineers’ Automotive and Composites Divisions and will take place this week in Novi, Michigan.

Michelman is a leader in the development and production of innovative and novel water-based functional dispersions and emulsions of polymers, resins, and waxes. Its robust line of solutions is used as lubricants, film formers, sizing agents, and binders during fibre manufacturing and composite processing.

Along with being a sponsor, Michelman will feature Hydrosize Link at the event, an innovative polyurethane dispersion designed as fibre sizing for reinforced composites in automotive under-the-hood applications. The sizing is available in two grades; Hydrosize Link U470 is for use with chopped strand fibre, while Hydrosize Link U480 is suitable for both chopped strand and continuous fibre.

Hydrosize Link dispersions are specifically designed to react with PA6 and PA6.6 resin matrices. They are designed to 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.

Michelman’s surface additives and polymeric binders are used by manufacturers to enhance performance attributes and add value in applications including wood and floor care products, metal and industrial coatings, paints, varnishes, inks, fibres and composites. Michelman is also well-known as an innovator in the development of barrier and functional coatings, as well as digital printing-press primers that are used in the production of consumer and industrial packaging, paper products, labels, and commercially printed materials. Michelman serves its customers with production facilities in North America, Europe and Asia, product development and technical service centres in several major global markets.
