Rhodia Engineering Plastics, member of the Solvay group, a world leader in speciality chemicals, will exhibit at the JEC Composites Show for the first time alongside Solvay Specialty Polymers.

Rhodia Engineering Plastics will highlight Evolite by Technyl, an extension to its successful range of Technyl compounds. This patented series of polyamide-based continuous fiber reinforced materials is available in recyclable matrix, pre-impregnated fabrics and consolidated plates.



Typical end-use markets for Evolite include automotive and transportation, construction, sports and leisure where the balance between lightweight, strength and impact resistance is essential. Providing a solution to metal substitution, Evolite by Technyl offers cost efficiency, shorter cycle times and greater recycling and environmental advantages which are opening up new opportunities for thermoplastic composites.


Solvay Specialty Polymers will showcase its range of high-performance thermoplastic resins, films and foams. Virantage PESU and reactive PESU tougheners deliver excellent hot-wet performance, superior damage tolerance, enhanced solubility and processability. Ajedium Films made using engineering and high-performance polymers are available up to 1.5 meters (60 inches) wide with thickness capabilities from 6 microns to 60mils.
