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.
