Solvay Engineering Plastics highlights its two new high performance polyamide solutions, E-Plus and Technyl RedJ, for automotive lightweighting, electric vehicle and low carbon emissions applications.

Nowadays, the markets traction for electric vehicles (EVs for short) and hybrid vehicles is on continuous rise whereas internal combustion engines (ICEs for short) are faced with ever-increasing government and regulatory pressure. At the same time, automotive manufacturers (OEMs) are heavily investing in these technologies.

Solvay anticipates that by 2025, electric and hybrid powered vehicles will occupy a 15% share of the automobile market, which will further increase to 30% by 2030. Meanwhile, the economic balance of electric vehicles is also changing, with battery costs going down by 75% in the past six years, and all factories are being adjusted to transform from petrol- and diesel engine powered transportation to electric transportation.

Both the E-Plus series of materials and the Technyl RedJ material can meet the more and more stringent requirements for automotive lightweighting and high-performance heat management, including providing high temperature resistant, flame resistant, and stable metal replacement solutions, said Marilyn Lye, Solvays APAC Commercial Managing Director for Performance Polyamides.

In addition to material solutions for automotive application fields, Solvay also showcases the latest applications of the Technyl series of products in new energy vehicles, charging facilities, photovoltaic industry, high- and low-voltage electrical protectors, and so on.

According to Ms Lye, the present market trend is going for faster and faster updates of new products, smaller production volumes, and more and more improvements.

For this reason, Solvay has invested more on the R&D of 3D printing in the recent few years, with an aim to assist customers to carry out rapid prototyping and testing, shorten product development time and enhance products value for money.

The company has established a 3D printing R&D center in Lyon, France. It also carries out 3D printing R&D and innovation activities in Asia. At the fairgrounds of CHINAPLAS 2018, Solvay showcases its Technyl series of high-end services, ranging from simulation design, functional 3D printing of parts, to product performance testing and so on.

Ms Lye revealed that in future, Solvay would focus its attention on three issues: safety, sustainability and product freedom. No matter how lightweight a vehicle is or how low its carbon emissions are, safety is always the prime factor to be considered. It is the same for the electronic consumer goods industry. Safety always comes first for electronic products no matter how lightweight, tiny, fashionable or intelligent they are,she said, adding that product freedom refers to how a product is designed to fulfill peoples various needs for work and entertainment anytime, anywhere.

Sustainable development, which has been one of Solvays strategic development goals for many years, is an issue closely related to the stricter and stricter environmental supervision in China, Ms Lye continued, and after China enforced the strictest ever environmental supervision in 2017, some chemical factories had to restrict or suspend their production as a result. Solvay has always been investing in environmental R&D. In as early as three to four years ago, we have already started an environmental pilot project regarding post-consumer recycling. We hope China can put environmental policies in place as it will contribute to the green and healthy development of the entire chemical industry, she said.
