Solvay and Spirit AeroSystems have signed an extension to their supply agreement for composites and adhesives to be used on nacelle and fuselage applications across Boeing’s commercial programmes.

Solvay will supply Spirit with CYCOM 934 carbon fibre composites, SM 905 lightning strike protection, FM 377 and FM 73 adhesive films and BR 127 corrosion inhibiting primer.

“Spirit is currently achieving record build rates across its single aisle products and, with the signature of this supply agreement, Solvay is able to offer Spirit supply security to sustain its production levels,” says Carmelo Lo Faro, President of Solvay’s Composite Materials Global Business Unit.

“This agreement represents a continued collaborative relationship that allows both Spirit and Solvay to seek continuous growth, business stability and provide value,” states Ron Rabe, Senior Vice President of Operations for Spirit AeroSystems. “In addition, the contract extension demonstrates commitment that is necessary to support unprecedented commercial airplane production rates.”
