Onto™ Sizing Treatments increase the interaction between the reinforcement agent and the polymer matrix, resulting in stronger composite structures. Onto™ treatments create a thin layer of material on the surface of the fibre, creating a surface that will facilitate more uniform bonding.
We have treatments that prime for the following types of binder materials:
Our Onto™ fibre sizing treatments are effective on various fibre types including UHMWPE materials like Dyneema® and Spectra®. They can be used to coat continuous and chopped fibre, fabrics and tapes. The low coat weight required for any Onto™ treatment means that fibres only have minimal weight gain, and because Onto™ only modifies the surface it will not affect the bulk properties of the material.
We currently have beta products available for trial that are compatible with epoxy, polyurethane and phenolic matrix materials. Please contact us to discuss further.
