Solvay PVDF Capacity Increases Twofold in China June 20 2022

2022 Lucintel Composites Market Insights, June 20, 2022

Solvay’s Changshu site has significantly increased production capacity for Solef PVDF, demonstrating the Group’s commitment to meeting the needs of customers worldwide.
Solvay continues to extend its leadership position in the global lithium-ion battery market with the early completion of its PVDF capacity increase in Changshu, China. The Group has now more than doubled the onsite production volume of its high-performance polymer Solef polyvinylidene fluoride since mid-May 2022.
The rapid growth of electric and hybrid vehicles is driving record demand for PVDF. This thermoplastic fluoropolymer is used both as a binder and a separator coating in lithium-ion batteries.
Solvay also recently declared significant investment in Solef PVDF production at its site in Tavaux, France, which will turn it into the largest PVDF production site in Europe. The increased production capacity in China serves as further evidence of the Group’s deep commitment to ensuring that material is readily available to customers worldwide.
