Michelman’s Gilles LeMoigne, Regional Marketing Manager, EMEA, will lead a technical presentation entitled Effect of Sizing on the Interfacial and Mechanical Properties of Carbon Fiber (CF) Reinforced Polyamide (PA6,6) Composites as part of JEC World 2020’s Carbon - What Materials and Processes for the Future? conference track.  Mr LeMoigne will discuss the effects of fibre surface-treatment and sizing on the interfacial and mechanical properties of carbon fibre/nylon (PA6,6) composites.

Michelman, known in the fibres and composites industry as the ‘interface experts’, and manufacturer of industry-leading Hydrosize fibre sizing solutions, will feature its Hydrosize Carbon family of products at JEC World 2020.

Hydrosize Carbon allows carbon fibre manufacturers to optimize the interfacial adhesion between polymers and fibres by tailoring the surface chemistry of their reinforcement fibres to the chemistry of the matrix resin. Their diverse range of grades offer a wide variety of solutions depending on resin compatibility, fibre type, and desired composite performance.

Designed for high-temperature polyamides applications, the Hydrosize Carbon 200 Series is APE, solvent, and VOC-free and is perfect for fibre-reinforced nylon composites where greater thermal stability is required.

Formulated for polycarbonates (PC) and other PC blends such as PC-ABS, the Hydrosize Carbon 300 Series produces good chemical resistance along with interfacial adhesion to these polymer systems.

Hydrosize Carbon 400 Series includes high-performance grades that can withstand the extreme processing temperatures that many high-temperature thermoplastics require. Appropriate materials include PEEK, PPS, PEI, and others used to produce various composite engine components. This series exhibits excellent thermal stability, mechanical properties, and low creep.

Finally, the Hydrosize Carbon 700 Series, currently under final stages of development and formulated to improve the performance of carbon fibre reinforced vinyl ester composites, is targeted for SMC applications. Its proprietary chemistry allows for increased adhesion between the carbon fibre and various vinyl ester compounds.

Mr. LeMoigne’s presentation will take place at noon on Wednesday, 4 March 2020. Michelman will exhibit in Hall #5, Booth G73, at the Paris-Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre.
