Solvay boosts its specialty polymers production capacity in India  

By Gerald Ondrey |

Solvay S.A. (Brussels, Belgium; www.solvay.com) announced today a capacity increase of 70% at its Panoli plant, India, for the production of its high performance polymers KetaSpire polyetheretherketone (PEEK) and AvaSpire polyaryletherketones (PAEK). Panoli is Solvay’s largest plant worldwide for these two innovative ultra performance polymers that tower at the top of the plastics performance pyramid. Nearly half of this capacity increase has already been implemented and successfully brought on-line. The second phase of the project will be completed by mid 2013 and will allow the plant to continue to satisfy growth in demand. Along with their ease of processing, the ultra-high performance of KetaSpire PEEK and AvaSpire PAEK provide substantial value for design engineers, says the company. The products are used in a diverse range of applications spanning many industries including aeronautic, automotive (for instance. mechanical components in cars), healthcare (medical equipment and reusable medical devices), electronics, oil & gas exploration and production, and process industries such as semiconductor manufacturing (chip testing and wafer processing). With this investment, the Group reaches a new milestone in realizing…
