Michem® Emulsion 11226

Brand Family Overview

FGLASS™ is a versatile family of fiber sizings and film formers used in the manufacturing of both glass fiber and carbon fiber. It is suitable for both chopped strand and continuous fiber applications.

Usage

Useful as an additive in fiberglass sizing formulations used to reinforce polypropylene. This emulsion has a very high molecular weight, similar to a polypropylene coupling agent. The molecular weight enhancement should provide additional properties to the fiberglass, not achieved with standard low molecular weight polypropylenes. Being cationic in nature it should provide better adhesion to the glass fibers when processing and forming.
