Solvay Advanced Polymers Joins Forces with Mitsubishi Gas Chemical

Solvay Advanced Polymers, LLC, Alpharetta, Georgia, is collaborating with Mitsubishi Gas Chemical Co. Inc. (MGC), Tokyo, on the development of a unique line of renewably-sourced specialty polymers. The joint work is initially focused on the introduction of high-temperature bio-based polyamides for high-performance durable applications. With a heat deflection temperature of approximately 270°C for glass-filled compounds, the new polymer will have greater thermal performance than many current bio-based polyamides and polyesters.

Under the collaboration, the two companies plan to build upon MGC’s development of a new monomer which will be used to co-develop a new line of specialty polymers. These high-performance polyamides, based on bio-based Sebacic acid derived from castor oil, are expected to be among the highest temperature bio-based polyamides in the industry and will nicely complement Solvay’s high-temperature Amodel polyphthalamide (PPA) product line.
