Solvay will begin production of polyetherketoneketone (PEKK) polymers in the US next year to support its composite materials business in meeting growing aerospace demand.
“Solvay further affirms its unique position in lightweighting materials by joining the forces of its high-performance speciality polymers and composite materials to produce its own PEKK resin,” says Roger Kearns, member of Solvay’s Executive Committee. “This new capacity will address fast-growing demand for thermoplastic composites and 3D printing components in aerospace and in other markets.”
Solvay will commence PEKK production at its site in Augusta, Georgia, under the trade name NovaSpire.
PEKK is used in thermoplastic composites reinforced with carbon fibres and in additive manufacturing.
