Fibers & Composites
We manufacture a variety of polymeric dispersions and emulsions used as fiber sizing, carbon fiber sizing, glass fiber sizing, binders and lubricants by fiberglass and other reinforcing fiber manufacturers
The treated fibers are in turn used to manufacture nylon, PBT, high performance, thermoplastic and other reinforced composite products and components such as wind turbines and lightweight reinforced plastic components in the automotive and durable goods markets.
The versatile chemistries we offer help prevent fiber breakage during forming, processing, and post processing and are specifically designed to facilitate processing, ease handling and optimize properties in various matrixes.
A small sample from our versatile suite of solutions includes:
- Michem® Emulsion 91735, a sizing polymer for reinforcing fiberglass and other fibers.
- Hydrosize PA845, a fiber sizing for fiber reinforced nylon composites
- Hydrosize U2022 Polyurethane Dispersion, a high strength sizing for glass and carbon chopped fiber
- Hydrosize U6-01 Solution, a polyurethane for fiber sizing
Our Fibers and Composites Global Business Unit offers manufacturing capabilities in North America, Europe and Asia, worldwide distribution, dedicated business development personnel around the world, as well as technical and sales support staff.
