Prepreg Resin SolvaLite 730

Easy Handling, Fast Cycle Time

Solvay's Composite Materials business unit, Tempe, AZ/USA, has launched its new innovative thermoset prepreg resin system SolvaLite 730 specifically developed for high volume automotive applications. It is a component of the SolvaLite range of thermoset composites and complements Solvay’s Evolite range of thermoplastic composites.

This next-generation material, formulated with Advalite Vinyl Hybrid resins from Reichhold, Durham, NC/USA, offers an unmatched combination of characteristics and benefits to the market including:

  • Sub 60 seconds cure capability, making it ideal for high volume structural applications (150,000 vehicles p.a.)
  • Standard properties in line with autoclave-cured high-performance automotive systems
  • Exceptional toughness when compared with other available rapid cure systems
  • Low tack, designed for use in automated processes
  • Storage stable at room temperature, removing the need for freezers and temperature controlled transportation

The new prepreg resin system offers very high flexibility in processing and enables the efficient manufacturing of different types of components at high rates. “Reichhold was a key partner in developing this innovative chemistry that supported Solvay's unique approach to producing serial automotive composite structures,” says Gerald Perrin, Program Management Director - Serial Automotive, at Solvay Composite Materials. John Ilkka, Business Development Manager - Advanced Materials at Reichhold adds, “Reichhold, working with Solvay under a collaboration agreement, developed the novel Advalite resin system that was used to formulate SolvaLite 730. We are excited to see this novel product on the market as we believe it represents a step-change for the industry.”
