Brussels-headquartered Syensqo, previously part of the Solvay Group, has announced the launch of Swyft-Ply, a new composite material brand for the electronic and smart devices market.

Swyft-Ply products have been developed to leverage the well-known benefits of composites such as weight reduction and exceptional strength to enable new form factors that are not only thinner but provide more design flexibility and freedom needed by device manufacturers. The Swyft-Ply product portfolio offers the ability to select important material features such as dielectric performance and thermal characteristics as well as UL94 flammability requirements.

The Swyft-Ply portfolio is based on multiple polymer resin types and reinforcements and in various material formats. It has been specifically formulated to maximise processing efficiencies through fast-curing, controlled flow and extended storage conditions.

“We have developed Swyft-Ply with the electronics and smart devices industry’s quick development cycle and high volume manufacturing requirements in mind,” said Andrew Lau, senior executive vice president of electronics and industrial at Syensqo Speciality Polymers GBU. “Such requirements include materials that can be processed quickly while enabling reduced secondary manufacturing costs thanks to controlled flow resins and compatibility with other processes such as overmoulding. We look forward to witnessing the wider adoption of composites in this market.”

“From product formulation to data generation and application engineering, our team has worked hand in hand with our customers to bring their concepts to reality,” added Marc Doyle, executive vice president of Syensqo Composite Materials GBU.

Syensqo will officially introduce Swyft-Ply to the market at JEC World 2024 from March 5-7, in Hall 5 at stand K58.
