CYCOM is Solvays product branding for its aerospace composite materials. By achieving a balance of performance, cost and lightweighting these products offer advantages over metallic solutions and non-CYCOM composite products. In turn, this balance facilitates greater use of composite materials across the aerospace sector, and consequently a lower fuel burn per aircraft and the reaping of environmental benefits as a result.

The Financial benefits

  • CYCOM materials can lead to direct savings in fuel consumption as well as enabling aircraft operators to carry increased payloads driving higher and cargo flexibility
  • Composite materials, such as our CYCOM portfolio can offer longer lifespans than components made from metals, reducing the need for maintenance and replacement (e.g., 30% lower airframe maintenance)
