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.

 

Evolite™ offers:

  • 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
