Solvay Advanced Polymers: Partnership with Entegris
Solvay Advanced Polymers, LLC, Alpharetta, GA, USA, is partnering with Entegris Inc.’s Tego Polymers unit to develop and market advanced carbon nanotube-enhanced PEEK products suited for a range of emerging applications in the medical, aerospace, automotive, and oil and gas industries. Solvay will supply its KetaSpire PEEK resin to Entegris, Billerica, MA, USA, who in turn will sell compounds utilizing its novel carbon nanotube technology (CNT). These compounds are targeted for applications requiring weight reduction, enhanced stiffness and flexibility, thermal management, and static charge dissipation.
Entegris has developed proprietary technology for the uniform dispersion of carbon nanotubes into PEEK and other thermoplastics to create homogeneous blends. This homogeneity is achieved with unique mixing and characterization methods at multiple scales.
