Solvay/Fibroline: Agreement Concerning PVC Composite Materials
Solvay SA, Brussels, Belgium, signed with Fibroline, Ecully, France, an agreement concerning the use of the patented Fibroline technology for the manufacture of fiber reinforced materials impregnated with PVC.
The Fibroline technology enables the impregnation of powder form materials into porous structures of various types, such as textiles, papers, foams, as well as composite materials. Solvay developed within its European Subsidiary SolVin, special PVC formulations, which, associated with the optimal powder distribution obtained with the Fibroline technology, are leading to high performances composite materials called FibroVin.
After industrial applications for technical textiles, Fibroline is now entering the composite materials business. The objective of both Solvay and Fibroline is to extend the range of PVC composite materials, initially focused on glass fibers composites for building industry, to other fibers and businesses.
