Solvay Promoting Latest Composite Technology Developments at SAMPE Long Beach 2018

May 28 2018

Solvay shared its vision of the future of the composites industry and promoting its latest technologies at SAMPE Long Beach 2018. Carmelo Lo Faro, President of Solvay’s Composite Materials Global Business Unit, gave SAMPE’s keynote lecture on May 22nd, sharing insights on how innovations in high rate manufacturing, modelling, multi-functionality and environmental sustainability will be key to enabling the large scale adoption of composites.

Solvay promoted market leading and new technologies developed to address the industry’s manufacturing challenges (samples and components were displayed on Solvay’s stand):

Market leading technologies that enable the industrialization of composite part manufacture:

• CYCOM 5320-1 for cost-effective OOA processing of aerospace structures
• APC PEKK for rapid consolidation of thermoplastic composite structures
• PRISM technology for high rate manufacture of integrated composite structures

Next-generation products and technologies that offer reliability and cost efficiencies:
• FusePly further enables the build of reliable, bonded composite parts through the creation of covalently bonded surfaces thus streamlining part integration and reducing assembly time in composite structures.
• Evolite F1050, newly launched product for Oil and Gas thermoplastic composite pipe applications.
• SolvaLite 730, an innovative thermoset prepreg resin system specifically developed for high-volume automotive applications
• Tegracore PPSU Foam, a foam core under development ideal for thermoset or thermoplastic sandwich panels
• VAC-PLY VMS3, a new next-generation, multi-layer microporous vacuum channel for resin infusion specifically designed to maximize air removal during resin infusion processes, thus optimizing impregnation and avoiding dry spots.
