Rhodia Launches Polyamide-Based Continuous Fibre Reinforced Materials

07 November 2010

Rhodia has launched Evolite by Technyl, a range of high performance polyamide-based continuous fibre reinforced materials, at the K 2010 trade show.

Available in recyclable pre-impregnated fabrics or consolidated plates, Evolite can be made of glass, carbon or other fibres. Rhodia say that parts made in Evolite will show excellent strength and toughness, enhanced crash resistance and excellent ageing properties, with end applications including transport seating, car bumper beams and front-end structures, racing bicycle frames or window frames. In addition, they say that material fluidity allows faster production rates compared to thermoset technologies, with a major cost-competitive advantage.

Evolite is a breakthrough solution with considerable growth ahead of it commented Franois Hincker, President of Rhodias Engineering Plastics Global Business Unit. We see it as setting the standard for future generations of composites.
