Solvay SA, Brussels, Belgium, and SGL Carbon SE, Wiesbaden, Germany, have entered into a joint development agreement (JDA) to bring to market the first composite materials based on large-tow intermediate modulus (IM) carbon fiber.

These materials, which, as stated in a press release, reduce costs and CO2 emissions, and improve the production process and fuel efficiency of next-generation commercial aircraft, will be based on SGL Carbon’s large-tow IM carbon fiber and Solvay’s primary structure resin systems. The agreement encompasses both thermoset and thermoplastic composite technologies.

“By combining SGL’s carbon fiber expertise in our newly developed, unique 50K IM fiber with Solvay’s resin formulation and aerospace market expertise, both partners are aiming to develop an advanced aerospace material system. This alliance supports our strategic direction and accelerates our growth in the attractive aerospace market,” said Dr. Michael Majerus, spokesman of the management board of SGL Carbon.

For Augusto Di Donfrancesco, member of Solvay’s executive committee, this is the first step in a long-term partnership.
