Michelman and University of Delaware Evaluate Fibre Sizing Solutions

02 January 2018

Michelman has become one of the 55 members of the University of Delaware’s Centre for Composite Materials (UD-CCM) Industry Consortium. The company will sponsor a research project that will help evaluate sizing options of carbon and glass fibre for their compatibility with both thermoplastic and thermoset resins.

Michelman’s position as a sizing and surface treatment expert will complement UD-CCM’s materials research and technology transfer expertise. The technical collaboration will focus on identifying the best sizing/fibre/resin combinations that will enhance properties such as heat, impact and fatigue resistance appropriate for a broad range of end-use applications in the automotive, aerospace and electronics industries.
