Specifically, Michelman is extending its poly- amide dispersion portfolio with the addition of Hydrosize PA874, which is particularly suited to long fiber. It is used to optimize nylon compos- ites and designed to offer long- term performance in environments exposed to high temperatures such as in electronic devices or engine parts. Also in the booth is Hydrosize U5-01, a sizing solution for amor- phous polymers. Properties such as resistance to heat distortion and high impact strength make amorphous polymers such as PC, PPO or ABS alloys good candidates for new applications in the automotive, electronics and medical device industries. Additionally, the Hydrosize U5-01 polyurethane dispersion offers strong adhesion and has been used successfully as the sizing solution for glass and carbon fiber. Hydrosize HP-1632 is a polyimide solution for high-temperature thermoplastics. This polyimide-based sizing can withstand extreme processing temperatures that many high- temperature thermoplastics require. Targeted materials include PEEK, PPS, PEI and others. It offers what is said to be excellent thermal stability, adhesion and abrasion resistance. Finally, Michelman says it is pursuing the develop- ment of a large portfolio of products targeting applications that use thermoset resins, such as epoxy, vinyl ester and unsaturated polyester. Michelman, Booth P62. Fiber Winding & Tensioning Technologies Izumi International Inc. (Greenville, South Carolina) is emphasizing its full line of winders and creels, and its warp and weft feeding and tensioning devices for carbon fiber and other high-performance fibers. Izumi also is presenting information on its new partnerships with Musashi, makers of precision fluid dispensers, and Moltec, which provides wire and cable protection, with patented Grip Lock technology. Izumi International Inc., Booth P83. Hydraulic Presses with Robotic Tool Handling OEM Press Systems (Fullerton, California), a manufacturer of hydraulic presses, is featuring its robotic mold-handling systems, designed to reduce process cycle time and eliminate the lifting of molds by an operator. In the featured system, multiple presses are serviced by a single robot mounted on a 40-ft/12m rail system. The scope of travel can be extended to accommodate any number of presses, allowing for expansion. OEM Press Systems, Booth D61. Hydrosize PA874, particularly suited to long fiber, is used to optimize nylon composites.
