Fiber Sizing Seminar Conducted by Michelman at the China Composites Expo 2013

Michelman’s Dr. Yves De Smet conducted a seminar on fiber sizing and binder solutions at the China Composites Expo 2013, held in Beijing, China from September 11-13, 2013.  The presentation was done in English and translated to Chinese in real-time by Michelman’s Mr. Allen Zhu.

Dr. De Smet presented an overview of how fiber sizing and binders affect production and processing of the glass, carbon and other reinforcing fibers, as well has how they impact the manufacturing of composite parts and products. He went on to describe how companies are utilizing Michelman’s experience in this highly technical application, as well as a full line of product solutions to protect fiber during production, processing and post processing, and ensure compatibility within the composites matrix.

A copy of the presentation is available by emailing [email protected] and including “China Composites Expo 2013 Presentation” in the subject line.
