Longer and lighter - a revolution in subsea piping

The Oil & Gas industry faces increasing challenges as new offshore fields are discovered in deeper water. As a consequence, subsea pipes need to be longer, therefore becoming heavier, which generates additional costs and logistical challenges of all sorts.
The solution is to switch to lighter pipes, but that are still capable of withstanding corrosion and the extreme conditions that come with oil & gas applications. Replacing steel with the right composite materials can achieve such performances.

Evolite™ F1050 is a high performance thermoplastic composite material specially designed for the O&G industry, combining the excellent chemical and temperature resistance of Solef® PVDF with the inherent high strength performance of carbon fiber.

Specialty polymers for smarter water management

More efficient water management is a priority across all industries today. The increasing scarcity of the most precious commodity on Earth is driving the development of new water sources and technologies, such as desalination and the re-use of wastewater.
Furthermore, the water treatment sector is facing sustainability and regulatory challenges, and must therefore implement improvements in terms of energy efficiency and compliance with increasingly stringent requirements. 
Because of all this, the global growth rate for water treatment across industries, from oil & gas to mining, food & beverage, power generation and biotechnology, is estimated to 5-7%.

Solvay offers the largest portfolio of specialty polymers on the market (comprising polysulfones, fluoropolymers and Ultra Polymers) that can answer these challenges for all types of uses, whether it’s by improving filtration efficiency, providing the ability to operate at high temperature and pressure, or by enhancing membrane life.

Accelerating the path to sustainable mobility - Cyasorb® V Series

At a time when the automotive industry is under pressure to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, weight reduction of cars by replacing metal parts with lighter materials is a highly promising solution.

Sourcing alternative materials that are equal performing to metal in terms of strength and durability, as well as appearance, enables manufacturers to drive down the percentage of metal in cars, leading to more lightweighting and consequently better environmental performance.

High performance polyolefins are undoubtedly the way to go here. With Solvay’s CYASORB®  CYXTRA® UV stabilizers, polymers measure up to metal.

Improving resource efficiency in agriculture and construction - Cyasorb® A & B Series

Feeding a growing planet despite increasing climatic challenges and dwindling water resources requires solutions that can increase agricultural yields without draining additional resources.
 
One solution is to extend the lifespan of the plastic films used for greenhouse coverings, which protect crops from external aggression and help maintain optimal growing conditions such as temperature and humidity. Solvay’s UV stabilizers improve the lifetime of polyolefin films and their resistance to pesticides, thereby reducing the frequency of film replacement. They also contribute to reducing water needs and, ultimately, achieving more sustainable crop yield.
 
In construction, environmental performance is a growing concern and, increasingly, a regulatory requirement as well. The industry needs more durable and resilient materials that are recyclable, easier-to-install and more energy-efficient.  

Solvay’s polymer additives provide UV and thermal protection to polyolefins, improving the durability of a wide range of construction materials, from roofing membranes and tiles to composite decking, siding and shutters.They support the replacement of traditional building materials, such as bitumen-based solutions, with more sustainable and durable plastic-based alternatives.

Taking Additive Manufacturing to the Next Level

Solvay aims at becoming industry’s leading provider of Additive Manufacturing (AM) ready specialty polymers.  
Our material solutions will be fully integrated with design, services and processes.
As industrial 3D Printing technology continues to improve and accommodate higher performing materials, parts made by Fused Filaments Fabrications (FFF) can serve in industrial and healthcare roles previously not possible.

Starting with our tailor-made PEEK and PPSU filaments, based on KetaSpire® PEEK and Radel® PPSU, and PEKK powders, based on NovaSpire™ PEKK, for industrial 3D printing as well as our recently launched healthcare grade PEEK and PPSU filaments, we will continue to increase our range of additive manufacturing solutions to include more high-performance materials and services to optimize design, processing and part performance.
