Composite Solutions


Solvay partners with iCOMAT, developers of game changing composite processing technology

Solvay is partnering with Bristol, UK based start-up iCOMAT who has developed Rapid Tape Shearing (RTS), a truly disruptive material deposition technology that will revolutionize the design and manufacture of composite parts, answering the industry’s need for lighter and more cost-efficient composite structures
RTS is the world’s first industrial manufacturing process that enables defect-free steering of wide composite tapes, enabling precise tailoring of the fiber orientation at any point of a composite material part and providing unprecedented levels of structural efficiency. This means less material deposited enabling lighter and more cost-effective parts than ever before.
