Renewable energy provides reliable power, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, and conserves natural resources. The market for renewable energy is expanding quickly and there is tremendous market potential. Avient has the portfolio and material science expertise to help customers deliver value and innovation and meet the increasing demands of renewable energy applications.
We are committed to helping our customers develop and manufacture alternative energy applications. Avient offers a full range of material solutions that enable renewable energy infrastructure, from high performance ropes or structural composites for wind energy infrastructure to materials for cable jacketing and insulation in solar installations.
Dyneema® DM20 high molecular weight polyethylene fibers are utilized in offshore wind turbine projects
Glasforms™ Pultrusion Technologies offer exceptional strength-to-weight ratio for continuous fiber reinforced composites for structural wind turbine components
Cesa™ Additive Masterbatches are utilized for solar back sheets to enhance the halogen-free mono material structure and protect against voltage breakdowns
Syncure™ Crosslinked Polyethylene Formulations, which provide high-performance, UL 4703 and VW 1-compliance and eliminate the need to use two separate insulation and jacketing formulations
Smartbatch™ Color And Additive Concentrates offer superior UV weathering protection for solar power installations. Additionally, protective cable insulation and jacketing can be made from ECCOH™ Low Smoke and Fume, Non-Halogen Formulation
Construction of large multi-gigawatt floating wind farms benefit from stable winds and are non-visible from the shore. These projects come with many challenges, including difficulties in installation and minimizing levelized cost of energy (LCOE). The Solution & Impact Avient Protective Materials worked with offshore wind farms to develop low pre-tension mooring systems made from Dyneema® DM20. These systems utilize small handling equipment and connectors, enabling ease of installation and low maintenance costs.
