Michelman has formally organized its growing chemical sales into the fibers and composites markets under a business unit umbrella.

Michelman manufactures a variety of emulsified and dispersed polymers used as sizing by fiberglass and other reinforcing fiber manufacturers.

“”Our well known capabilities in the area of emulsification and polymer dispersion technologies preceded us in the fibers and composites markets,”” said Mr. Steve Shifman, President and CEO at Michelman. “”Early successes with polypropylene applications led to our acquisition of Hydrosize in 2008 and their expertise with polyurethane. Overall, there has been a tremendous adoption of Michelman technology by fiberglass manufacturers and producers all around the world. The formation of this business unit now better positions us to help our reinforcing fiber manufacturing customers deliver product with surface treatments designed for ultimate performance in the manufacturing of composites.””
