Solvay and 3A Composites have launched Tegralite, a range of lightweighting materials suitable for the aeronautics industry.

‘Tegralite's package of integrated solutions intends to address the order backlog in commercial aviation, which has been growing by 70% in the past four years,’ said Augusto Di Donfrancesco, president of Solvay’s Specialty Polymers GBU. ‘This new avenue of growth addresses the rising need to substitute metal or heavier plastic parts with multi-functional thermoplastic materials able to resist shock, impact, high temperature, fire, chemicals and noise.’
