Discover Next-Generation Materials for Water Treatment 

As regulatory standards imposed on drinking water, industrial water, and municipal water tighten, the need for effective filtration and separation membranes is increasingly crucial. Polymers used to manufacture membranes must exhibit resilience in harsh environments while possessing exceptional solubility and purity. Filtration and separation membranes should also demonstrate superior chemical resistance, hydrolytic and oxidative stability, and excellent mechanical strength to ensure reliable performance over time. 

As the leading developer of specialty polymers for water treatment membranes, Solvay offers an expansive portfolio of materials for filtration and separation applications. Our selection of sulfone polymers and fluoropolymers is available in a wide range of molecular weights and grades for optimal customization and ease of processing, which enables the development of hollow fiber, flat sheet, and tubular membranes that meet requirements for pore size and separation selectivity.
