Michelman will spotlight its Hydrosize Link fibre sizings and resin modifiers formulated specifically for automotive applications at the Automotive Composites Conference & Exhibition (ACCE).

ACCE is jointly sponsored by the Society of Plastic Engineers’ Automotive and Composites Divisions and takes place on 5-7 September 2018 in Novi, Michigan, US.

Along with being a sponsor, Michelman is exhibiting in booth 213 and will feature Hydrosize Link, a polyurethane dispersion designed as fibre sizing for reinforced composites in automotive under-the-hood applications. The sizing is available in two grades; Hydrosize Link U470 is for use with chopped strand fibre, while Hydrosize Link U480 is suitable for both chopped strand and continuous fibre.

Hydrosize Link dispersions are designed to react with PA 6 and PA 66 resin matrices. They are said to 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.
