Arkema’s polymers and additives play a part in the vast majority of industries - automotive, electronics, furniture, construction, packaging, medical applications and the energies sector - seeking cutting edge performances materials. They help manufacture increasingly sturdy, light and durable components, often replacing metal or glass, that are heavier and raise higher processing costs. With its extensive range of technical polymers of renewable origin at the forefront, Arkema will be exhibiting at the upcoming Kunststoffe 2016 tradeshow on booth 6C57 its whole high-performance polymers and additives portfolio, showcased by markets and applications.
This trade fair is an opportunity for Arkema, a global leader in returnable glass container coating technology, to communicate with the beverage industry on its know-how in the field of returnable glass bottle protection. The Kercoat® protective technology together with the Opticoat® masking coating provide optimum performance to a returnable bottle fleet by significantly increasing the lifetime and enhancing the appearance to fulfil customers' expectations.
A world leader in high performance polymers, Arkema now offers a diverse range of materials for the manufacture of prototypes and functional technical short runs, using the laser sintering technology, the 3D printing/UV curing process, or molding for high-tech parts.
Arkema presents its comprehensive composite line that largely solves the challenge to find lighter materials:
• Elium® range, the first range of liquid thermoplastic
• Luperox® organic peroxides used as initiator for Elium® resins
• Kepstan® to replace metal in extreme conditions
• Rilsan® range, a high-performance polyamide that is 100% bio-sourced and makes thermoset composites resistant to abrasion and shock
• Additives like Nanostrength®, Orgasol® polyamides significantly improving the natural resistance properties of composites
• Black Mamba® waterproof sealant adhesives and SAF® structural adhesives from AEC Polymers
To address the fast growing coatings market in China, Arkema develops a wide and comprehensive range of resins with outstanding performances, the result of the latest innovations of its laboratories. These product ranges have been developed with environmental protection in mind, and for some, from biosourced raw materials. Arkema Coatings portfolio is unique in the market through a diversified choice of materials and technologies, covering the entire spectrum of requirements for industrial coatings, architectural coatings, decorative paints, specialty coatings and adhesives.
