3A acquires Solvay resin

3A Composites Core Materials has agreed to acquire Solvay’s TegraCore polyphenylsulfone (PPSU) resin-based foam.

The lightweight recyclable thermoplastic foam, which has improved fire-retardant properties, will become part of 3A’s portfolio with the name Airex TegraCore.

“This product addition will reinforce our offering and allow further developments in markets targeted for this foam – the aerospace, marine and rail markets,” said Eric Gauthier, CEO of 3A Composites Core Materials.
