Solvay exhibited its capabilities at Advanced Engineering Show, which took place in Birmingham, last week. © Inside CompositesSolvay has completed the acquisition of European Carbon Fiber (ECF), a German producer of high-quality “precursor” for large-tow (50K) polyacrylonitrile (PAN) carbon fibres. With this acquisition, Solvay is building the foundations to lead the adoption of composites in automotive applications, to serve select industrial markets, and to support the potential adoption of large-tow fibres in aerospace.
