“Nothing is more important to Michelman than advancing the composites industry and helping our customers be more successful,” said Mike Annis,VP of Michelman’s Industrial Manufacturing Group. “Our future partnership with AZL will help us do this. Michelman’s leading position as a sizingand surface treatment expert will provide us an opportunity to contribute to joint research and development efforts focused on identifying the best sizing/fiber/resin combinations to 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.”
Michelman’s latest move is part of its multi-year investment and partnership strategy to further advance and improve composite development throughout the industry. The company recently joined IACMI and the University of Delaware’s Center for Composite Materials, along with announcing strategic partnerships with Maficand Engineered Fibers Technology, LLC.
