Heatcon Composite Systems will distribute composite repair products manufactured by Solvay Materials under a global distribution partnership agreement signed by the two companies. Solvay’s products include vacuum-bagging films, breather fabrics, release films, peel plies, release fabrics, flash tapes, and sealant tapes.

Heatcon’s use of Solvay products will help ensure “maximum cohesion of base materials,” according to Heatcon. The company has served the aerospace industry for more than 35 years, supplying composite repair equipment such as hot bonders and accessories as well as repair materials and technician training.

In addition to aerospace, Solvay Materials manufactures lightweight materials for automobiles, batteries, smart devices, and medical equipment. “Our goal is to expand our product offerings to better serve our industry,” said Heatcon president Eric Casterline. “We believe our partnership with Solvay is crucial for the future success of Heatcon.”
