Solvay will showcase developments in thermoplastic composites, a light-weighting material that enhances the group’s sustainable mobility objectives and enables resource-efficient solutions for customers in aerospace, automotive, and oil and gas, at K 2019. It will also present a new high temperature polyetheretherketone (PEEK) polymer, an industry first.

K 2019 is to be held in Düsseldorf, Germany, during October 16-23.

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.

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. (SV)
