Solvay and Saroléa's best innovation to tackle future mobility.

Solvay is hosting electric superbike manufacturer, Saroléa, at its Brussels campus this year, a clear example of the Group promoting innovation and open collaboration with start-ups and researchers on its site.

Torsten Robbens, Chief Technology Officer at Saroléa, explains: “With the Saroléa headquarters being located on the Solvay Campus in Brussels, it gives us the unique position to work closely with the Solvay R&D department. This synergy allows us to implement more state of the art carbon fibre composites and 3D printed solutions in our motorcycles.”

Solvay delivers technical solutions to Saroléa thanks to the Group’s innovative techniques to drive mobility and sustainability.

A combination of materials and techniques result in lightweighting, and a very strong and rigid carbon fibre frame and swingarm. It is these pieces which are made with Solvay’s composites products. For example, Saroléa’s MANX7, an electric superbike (a lightweight, lightly powered motorcycle optimized for speed and handling rather than comfort), is an example of a carbon fiber monocoque -a vehicle structure in which the vehicle frame is integral with the body- chassis.

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.
