Solvay and Strata Form Aerospace Materials Joint Venture

Solvay SA, Brussels, Belgium, and Strata, an advanced composite aerostructures manufacturing facility, have formalized their Joint Venture (JV) to supply Boeing with advanced composite materials from a high-tech facility to be built in Al Ain, UAE. Following the signature of the JV agreement, the parties will seek anti-trust approvals.

The equal ownership joint venture will be the UAE's first supplier of pre-impregnated carbon fibers, also referred to as "prepreg". This durable advanced material is used to manufacture composite structures for aviation applications, including Boeing's latest generation aircraft, the 777X. The partnership marks Solvay's entry into advanced materials manufacturing in the UAE, and Mubadala's entry into advanced materials manufacturing for the aerospace industry through its wholly owned business, Strata Manufacturing.

The new approximately 8500 square meter facility will supply Boeing with carbon fiber prepreg for primary structure applications in its new 777X program. Solvay's prepreg technology consists of fiber reinforcements pre-impregnated with a resin matrix to manufacture composite parts, providing exceptional performance at lower weight compared to metal structures. The composite content of next-generation aircraft continues to grow as manufacturers of large commercial aircraft aim to reduce weight, improve fuel efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions.
