Michelman is pleased to announce that it has become one of only 55 members of the University of Delaware’s Center for Composite Materials (UD-CCM) Industry Consortium. The company will sponsor a research project that will help evaluate sizing options of carbon and glass fiber for their compatibility with both thermoplastic and thermoset resins.

Michelman’s leading position as a sizing and surface treatment expert will complement UD-CCM’s premier materials research and technology transfer expertise. The organizations’ technical collaboration will focus on identifying the best sizing / fiber / resin combinations that will enhance composite properties such as increased heat, impact, and fatigue resistance appropriate for a broad range of end-use applications in the automotive, aerospace, and electronics industries.

Both organizations will be exhibiting at CAMX, so, please stop by their booths (P62 and A62 respectively) to learn more.

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
