Solvay is launching its FusePly composite bonding technology at SAMPE 2018 in Long Beach, California, US, on 22-23 May 2018.
Solvay developed FusePly to enable the build of reliable, bonded composite parts using conventional manufacturing processes through the creation of covalently bonded structures, thus potentially removing the need for abundant rivets and fasteners. It addresses the manufacturing challenges faced by aircraft builders looking for improved performance, build rates and lightweighting.
According to Solvay, FusePly offers clear step-change bonding performance and benefits to users:
Solvay will be introducing FusePly at SAMPE 2018 by exhibiting samples on its stand and presenting in the conference programme.

CRP Technology collaborated with the Department of Aerospace Science and Technology of the Politecnico di Milano (PoliMi) on the construction of parts for the aeroelastic wind tunnel demonstrators for ‘Aeroelastic Flutter Suppression (AFS)’ e ‘GLAMOUR’ projects.
Research to develop a revolutionary high-performance composite metal hybrid stabiliser bar for trucks and trains has entered a new phase. The findings from the project to date show that the technology has the potential to spin out into other sectors such as aerospace and could see the UK take a global lead with this disruptive technology.
Bindatex is celebrating 10 years of partnership and delivering 50 tonnes of multiaxial fabrics to a global composites reinforcement manufacturer. The specialist slitting service enables the manufacturer to supply its customers with material in a wide variety of widths.
