Solvay Launches Composite Bonding Technology for Aerospace Industry

Published on 2018-05-28. Author : SpecialChem

Solvay has developed FusePly™ to enable the build of reliable, bonded composite parts using conventional manufacturing processes, through the creation of covalently bonded structures thus potentially removing the need for abundant rivets and fasteners. It addresses the manufacturing challenges faced by aircraft builders looking for improved performance, build rates and lightweighting.

FusePly™ Offers Clear Step-change Bonding Performance and Benefits to Users

FusePly by Solvay to enhance aerospace industry

Improved reliability: Through the creation of chemical bonds, FusePly™ enables part manufacturers to have increased confidence in bonded structures.

Higher part performance: Compared to mechanical fasteners, FusePly™ offers higher performance since drilling holes into fiber-reinforced structures introduces structural damage and creates stress concentrations that ultimately reduce the load capacity of the part.

Lightweighting: The reduction and replacement of fasteners with FusePly™ bonding will substantially reduce the overall weight of the aircraft.

Design freedom: Adhesives offer much greater design flexibility during manufacture and assembly at lower cost. FusePly™ can easily be integrated into existing manufacturing processes as an upgrade for traditional surface preparation methods.
