Solvay: Cooperation with Strategic Polymer Sciences
Solvay announced that its affiliate for fluorinated speciality polymers, Solvay Solexis, has struck a joint development agreement with Strategic Polymer Sciences (SPS), specialised in polymeric electronic materials. The agreement is about large-scale production of ultra-high-energy density capacitator dielectric materials based on biaxially-oriented polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF). PVDF-capacitators can achieve about ten times higher energy loads compared to capacitators based on conventional materials. Solvay ranks second worldwide in fluoromaterial production.
Ultra-high-energy density capacitators are used in in electric vehicles as well as in medical applications, such as defibrillators.
