Solvay Advanced Polymer

With over a dozen distinct families of high-performance and ultra-performance plastics, Solvay Advanced Polymers gives you more than any other plastics manufacturer in the world. More material choices to more perfectly match your application needs. More support for developing smart new designs. We offer hundreds of different product formulations—including modified and reinforced resins— so you can tailor a solution to meet your precise requirements.

Our family of amorphous sulfone polymers:

Udel® polysulfone (PSU) -- Tough, transparent plastic with exceptional chemical resistance, good hydrolytic stability and an HDT of 345°F (174°C)
Mindel® modified polysulfone (PSU) – Opaque, cost-effective PSU-alternative offering specific advantages versus Udel, such as superior electrical properties.
Radel® R polyphenylsulfone (PPSU) – Super-tough transparent plastic with an HDT of 405°F (207°C), excellent chemical resistance and the unique ability to be steam sterilized without significant loss of properties.
Veradel® polyethersulfone (PESU) – Transparent plastic with a high HDT of 400°F (204°C) and better chemical resistance than Udel
Acudel® modified polyphenylsulfone (PPSU) – Opaque PPSU-alternative offering cost advantages where application requirements match the balance of properties.

Our semi-crystalline semi-aromatic polyamides:

Amodel® polyphthalamide (PPA) – high-temperature nylon with exceptional mechanical properties, an HDT of 535°F (280°C), excellent chemical resistance and low moisture uptake.
Ixef® polyarylamide (PARA) – aesthetic, structural specialty nylon that combines outstanding stiffness with exceptional surface appearance, plus low and slow water uptake, and great flow properties.

Additional semi-crystalline polymers:

Primef® polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) – high-flow, structural plastic with good temperature and chemical resistance as well as inherent flame retardant properties. Xydar® liquid crystal polymer (LCP) – high-flow, high-temperature plastic with an HDT of 570°F (300°C), and extremely high chemical resistance.
