Solvay has signed a new agreement to supply Ruag with advanced structural composites for US and European space launcher programmes.

Solvay will supply MTM 46 composite products for Ruag to manufacture large integrated structural components including payload fairings, stage and payload adapters, dispensers and separation systems on next-generation launchers.

MTM 46 is a high performance, out-of-autoclave toughened epoxy resin system that meets space agencies requirements and can be used in light and stiff sandwich structures. It was specifically developed for extreme demand applications such as space programmes.

“Ruag Space is the leading supplier of composite payload fairings and is an expert in out-of-autoclave manufacture,” says Marc Doyle, Executive Vice-President Aerospace Business Line, Solvay Composite Materials. “They selected Solvay’s structural composites to produce cost-effective, high performance structural components. We look forward to supporting Ruag’s operations out of Decatur, Alabama, US and Emmen, Switzerland as they further contribute to space transportation.”
