Solvay plans to sell its process materials business to Composites One, a composites distributor and services firm. The business makes equipment used to manufacture parts such as carbon fiber–epoxy airplane wings. Composites One has distributed Solvay’s products in this area for 2 years.

The firm says the move, along with separate sales of sodium chlorate and fluorine assets, is part of a push to simplify its portfolio.
