Solvay will begin producing high-performance polyetherketoneketone (PEKK) polymers in the United States early next year, to support its composite materials business in meeting growing aerospace demand.

Brussels/Belgium --- The company intends to strengthen its position in lightweighting materials by joining the forces of its high performance specialty polymers and composite materials to produce its own PEKK resin. This new capacity will address fast-growing demand for thermoplastic composites and 3D printing components in aerospace and in other markets.

The manufacturer will commence production at its site in Augusta, Georgia, and under the trade name Nova Spire.

PEKK is used in thermoplastic composites reinforced with carbon fibers and in additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, in a range of industrial applications.
