Michelman Showcase Reinforced Plastic Composites Expertise at JEC Europe 2015

03 March 2015

Michelman’s Hydrosise, its brand of fibre sizings, along with complementary products, which have been produced to help composite manufacturers develop stronger, lighter, more durable and effective products and will be featured during JEC Europe 2015.

Michelman recently introduced new solutions designed to support advanced generations of lightweight, engineered resin composites increasingly being used in automotive applications. The company also unveiled new fibre sizings that comply with the European Plastic Implement Measure (EC/10/2011), and are being used in composites destined for food contact applications such as coffee machines, plastic dishes, food processors and other appliances and kitchen items.

As evidence of its expertise in the reinforced plastic composites industry, Michelman says it has recently been chosen to join an elite, 122-member consortium that will make up the new Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI). The Institute is a $259 million public-private partnership that will help advance the state of knowledge and commercialisation of carbon fibre composites.

Michelman offers a full line of sizings and lubricants used to optimise glass, carbon and natural fibres used in PE, PP, Thermosets, PPS, PA, PC and PET/PBT resin composites, by tailoring the surface chemistry of reinforcement fibres to the chemistry of the matrix resin. Complementary product lines include FGLASS, Michem Emulsion, U-Nyte and Hydrolube.

Michelman will be exhibiting in Hall 7.3, Stand M3.
