reinforcing fibres | Innovation Right:


Michelman has introduced its Hydrosize EP876 high molecular weight


epoxy-based sizing for


various fibres used in PBT for automotive and electrical/ electronic


applications


tures, conditions increasingly typical in the narrow confines of modern engine compartments. Rick Michelman, Executive VP and Chief Growth &


Technology Officer at Michelman, says Hydrosize Link U470 and U480 fibre sizings “have an incredible impact on performance.” He says Hydrosize Link technology eliminates the fibre producer’s step of adding secondary crosslinkers such as blocked isocyanates to the sizing bath. This not only simplifies the fibre manufacturing process, but more importantly allows better control over the desired degree of reactivity and ultimately composite performance. The two new grades differ in their level of reactivity.


demonstrated specific strength improvements of 50% and specific stiffness gains of 25% over E-glass fibre equivalents. In addition, it claimed that interlaminar shear strength, a measure of the fibre-matrix adhesion, was typically found to half way between similar glass and carbon composites in the same resin system.


Size does matter Michelman has just introduced two new polyurethane dispersions intended as fibre sizings for reinforced composites in automotive under-the-hood applications. Hydrosize Link dispersions react directly with the matrix resin, delivering what the company describes as exceptional composite performance under extreme exposure to water, ethylene glycol, and high tempera-


Ealier this summer, Michelman introduced Hydro- size EP876, a high molecular weight epoxy-based fibre sizing for fibres used in PBT. This is a water-based, formaldehyde-free dispersion that can be used with glass, carbon and natural fibres, producing good strand integrity and offering good chopping behaviour.
