Solvay (Hall 5, L42) is featuring composite materials and specialty polymers through several applications, including resin infusion for aerospace primary structures, Double Diaphragm Forming (DDF) rapid part manufacture, rapid-cure prepregs and Recyclate Molding Compound (RMC). Aerospace applications include an out-of-autoclave infused wing skin, a section of a Boeing 777 floor beam, a thermoplastic composite luggage bin rail, a thermoset and foam core cabin side panel, protective and decorative high-performance films, and high-strength and flame-resistant seating. Automotive applications include a modular floor demonstrator, automotive interior trim parts made from recycled materials, and Class A body panels for the Dallara Stradale car. Industrial applications include a bridgeplate used by Amtrak to span the gap between train cars and the platforms, enabling disabled users to get on board easily.
