Replacing metal with our products, manufacturers can build lighter vehicles that consume less fuel and reduce CO2 emissions.
Our polymer solutions are designed to replace metal so as to significantly reduce the weight of a vehicle without compromising safety. They also have excellent fire retardant and anti-corrosion properties.
In the automotive industry, Solvay's specialty polymers are used for exterior parts (such as rearview mirrors, wiper systems and door handles), structural & semi structural parts (for bumpers, engine support, seat structure, etc.), as well as mechanical components.
