Evolite™ is Solvay’s comprehensive range of thermoplastic composites for demanding applications.
Evolite™ offers outstanding mechanical properties and is designed for use in ultra-lightweight composite applications.
Evolite™ thermoplastic composites are available as unidirectional tapes as well as woven fabric and cross-ply UD laminates (or organosheets) on glass or carbon fiber.
These thermoplastic composites are ideal for, e.g., high volume automotive and oil and gas applications.
- Outstanding crash capabilities
- Short cycle-time processing, design freedom, function integration potential and recyclability associated with thermoplastics
- Unmatched mechanical resistance under tensile, flexural, compressive or shear stress
The Evolite™ range includes:
|Thermoplastic matrix||Product form||Reinforcement||Application|
|PA6||UD tape, laminates||Glass or carbon fiber||Automotive; semi-structural|
|PA66||UD tape, laminates||Glass or carbon fiber||Automotive; (semi-)structural|
|PPA*||UD tape, laminates||Glass or carbon fiber||Automotive; structural|
|PPS*||UD tape, laminates||Glass or carbon fiber||Automotive; Oil & Gas|
|PVDF*||UD tape||Carbon fiber||Oil & Gas|
In conjunction with Evolite™ semi-finished products, Solvay also offers a wide range of compatible short and long fiber reinforced injection moulding compounds to enable the manufacturing of complex, lightweight and cost-effective parts based on thermoplastic composites.
