Solvay will reveal a lightweighting material at K 2019.
Highlighting its developments in thermoplastic composites, the material enhances the Group’s sustainable mobility objectives and enables resource-efficient solutions for customers in aerospace, automotive, and oil & gas.
Solvay recently created a platform fully dedicated to thermoplastic composites, blending its unique in-house expertise via the vertical integration of its composite materials and its unmatched portfolio of high-performance polymers. These materials, beyond light-weighting, feature exceptional heat and shock resistance, strength and toughness, chemical inertness, and enable design flexibility.
In addition to the thermoplastic composites developments, Solvay will present a new high temperature polyetheretherketone (PEEK) polymer, an industry first.
Solvay will also showcase unique applications of its high-performance materials, such as the world’s first all-polymer recyclable e-bike made using the company’s long-fibre thermoplastics (LFT) material.
Presentations on sustainable mobility and resource efficiency will be given on a variety of topics including batteries, additive manufacturing, hyper-connectivity, transportation, water filtration, construction, and consumer goods. They will take place at Solvay’s booth C61 Hall 6 on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (16-18 October) as well as Monday and Tuesday (21-22 October).
