High Temperature Composites: How to Well Select Sizing Agents

Watch Online Tutorial

When formulating high temperature composites, many formulators just use commodity sizing agents because it is relatively cheap and quite readily available. But these don’t work well in high temperature polymers, and will weaken your composites.

Watch this tutorial and learn the practical criteria you should consider to select the best sizing agent for your high temperature composites.
