JEC World 2018: Solvay Showcases Portfolio of Composite and Speciality Polymer Technologies

27 February 2018

Solvay will showcase its composite and speciality polymers material technologies through leading-edge applications.

Solvay prides itself on its advanced chemistry and application engineering know-how which, coupled with its unique ability to collaborate with strategic customers, enable the development of game changing products and processing technologies such as resin infusion for aerospace primary structures, DDF (Double Diaphragm Forming) rapid part manufacture, automation-ready rapid-cure prepregs and RMC material (Recyclate Moulding Compound).

At JEC, Solvay will showcase a range of applications that have been developed following a close collaboration with its customers:

  • aerospace primary structures including an out-of-autoclave infused wing skin as well as a section of a Boeing 777 floor beam;
  • aircraft interior applications such as a thermoplastic composite luggage bin rail, a thermoset and foam core cabin side panel, protective and decorative high performance films, as well as high strength and flame resistant seating and overhead components;
  • high-volume automotive components comprising a modular platform floor demonstrator and interior trim parts made from recycled materials;
  • Class-A body panels such as the front bumper from the Dallara Stradale car;
  • industrial applications such as a bridgeplate used by Amtrak to span the gap and unevenness between train cars and the platforms, enabling disabled users to get on board easily.

With in-house carbon fibre and weaving capabilities, thermoset and thermoplastic resins, polymer formulation, composite manufacture, core and process materials supply, Solvay is able to fully support customer needs in expanding markets including aerospace, automotive, wind and other industrial applications. Thermoplastics are a key element of the company's growth strategy. Combining the technical expertise of its Speciality Polymers and Composite Materials businesses, Solvay is positioned to meet the most demanding industry challenges.
