  2. WHAT IS A "COMPOSITE"? An heterogeous mixture of (at least) 2 materials: • a MATRIX • a REINFORCEMENT E.g. concrete: cement + stones Founding families event 2 November 12, 2019

  3. WHAT IS A "COMPOSITE"? Wood: cellulose + hemicellulose (+ lignine): Founding families event 3 November 12, 2019

  4. OUR COMPOSITE MATERIALS In Solvay, matrices we work with are POLYMERS (not metals or ceramics). Our polymers can be either THERMOSET or THERMOPLASTIC. We use 3 main types of reinforcements: Founding families event 4 Our focus for today November 12, 2019

  5. WHAT IS A "POLYMER"? Macromolecule made of multiple repeating units (monomers) For example, the simplest one: Poly-ethylene [C-C] n Founding families event 5 November 12, 2019

  6. THREE TYPES OF POLYMERS Elastomer Thermoplastic Thermoset Founding families event 6 November 12, 2019

  7. TWO TYPES OF PROCESSING 1) THERMOSET Heat + Time 2 liquids Chemical reaction 1 solid (non reversible) E.g. epoxy or phenolic resins used today by our Composites GBU Founding families event 7 November 12, 2019

  8. TWO TYPES OF PROCESSING 2) THERMOPLASTIC Heat Force No chemical reaction (reversible transformation) Founding families event 8 November 12, 2019

  9. LOOKING INSIDE A THERMOPLASTIC POLYMER Founding families event 9 November 12, 2019

  10. THE SECRET INGREDIENT THE INTERFACE Optimizing the interface is critical to optimize properties of composite materials ... and we have a lot of competencies in this area! Founding families event 10 November 12, 2019

  11. THE ROLE OF THE INTERFACE HOW A COMPOSITE BREAKS "Perfect" (i.e. strong) adhesion: The crack barely "sees" the fiber  rigid but brittle composite Founding families event 11 November 12, 2019

  12. THE ROLE OF THE INTERFACE HOW A COMPOSITE BREAKS Optimized adhesion: Larger fracture area + Fiber pull-out friction  MORE ENERGY CONSUMED BY THE FRACTURE PROCESS Founding families event 12 November 12, 2019

  13. THERMOSET AND THERMOPLASTIC COMPOSITES Great properties but ... + • Long processing time THERMOSET: (chemical reaction) • Very hard to recycle Less rigid matrices but ... + • High productivity THERMOPLASTIC: processes • Recyclability Both are complementary and address different applications Founding families event 13 November 12, 2019

  14. THERMOSET AND THERMOPLASTIC COMPOSITES High performance Thermoset TPCs Composites Combination of the benefits of thermoplastic processability and the exceptional properties of our Properties high performance polymers Standard TPCs Processing (  cost, recyclability) Founding families event 14 November 12, 2019

  15. WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT OUR HIGH PERFORMANCE THERMOPLASTIC POLYMERS? In our high performance polymers, we eliminate weak chemical bonds to make them mechanically strong and highly resistant to heat and chemically agressive environments PEEK PPS PAEK Founding families event 15 November 12, 2019

  16. WE HAVE THE "RIGHT TO WIN" IN TPC Broad portfolio of Fiber/Resin TP prepreg Application specialty polymers interface manufacturing Engineering Solvay thermoplastic composites PERFORMANCE FAST ENVIRONMENTAL AND DURABILITY CYCLE TIME RESILIENCE Robust cost-effective fabrication Resistance to aggressive fluids High strength Enables higher build-rates No corrosion Unrivaled toughness More efficient part assembly Improved recyclability Outstanding crash performance Founding families event 16 November 12, 2019
