Solvay Supplies Halar ECTFE High Performance Film to Safran

December 16 2019

Solvay has signed an agreement with Safran to supply Halar ECTFE high performance film for its LEAP1 engine acoustic panels. Film made from Halar ECTFE with additional plasma treatment offers excellent adhesion to composite substrates providing superior aesthetic surface aspects to perfectly blend with its surroundings.

Solvay’s high-performance Halar ECTFE, a partially fluorinated semi-crystalline polymer, is used as a protective layer on the engine acoustic ring panel against the aggression of the harsh environment typical of the entrance of an aircraft engine. It is strong and tough and its resistance to erosion, abrasion, and aircraft chemicals and fluids make it ideal for this application.
