Formulated with a small particle size, Hydrosize PA845 exhibits excellent film forming properties, reports Michelman. It is solvent, VOC and alkylphenol ethoxylate (APE) free, and compliant with EC Directives on plastics for food applications.

Hydrosize PA845 is suitable for applications where continuous use temperatures are high, Michelman says. Potential applications for carbon fibre treated with Hydrosize PA845 sizing include military, transportation, aerospace and automotive components.

Michelman, Cincinnati, Ohio, USA, is a developer of water-based surface modifiers, additives and polymers for industries including fibres, composites and industrial coatings. It also produces water-based barrier and functional coatings for flexible film packaging, paperboard and corrugated cartons.
