New Fiber Sizing and Interface Adhesion Technologies


Michelman has developed Hydrosize Link, a unique polyurethane dispersion designed as fiber sizing for reinforced composites in automotive under-the-hood applications. The new sizing is available in two grades;Hydrosize Link U470 is for use with chopped strand fiber, while Hydrosize Link U480 is suitable for both chopped strand and continuous fiber.  Hydrosize Link dispersions are specifically designed to react with PA6 and PA6.6 resin matrices. They 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. The company Michelman is a global developer and manufacturer of advanced materials including fiber sizing and resin modifiers used in the production of reinforced plastic composites. This company will be exhibiting and leading a technical conference at CAMX 2016 Expo being held September 26-29, 2016 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California.
