Automotive & transportation
The transport industry is facing numerous challenges when it comes to designing tomorrow's vehicles, as well as addressing today's issues of reliability and reducing environmental impact. These challenges require reducing vehicle weight to boost fuel efficiency, optimizing the lifecycle of vehicles, and meeting the highest safety requirements. At Arkema, we are helping the automotive and aerospace industries achieve these goals with innovative, high-tech materials that enable manufacturers to reduce both their CO2 emissions and production costs.
The Arkema Group supports the automotive and transportation players by helping them respond to the constant changes in this market. It designs innovative solutions for them and with them which enable the market players to lower their production costs and lighten the weight of vehicles. The parts based on its solutions must comply with increasingly stringent requirements in terms of safety, fuel economy and vehicle life cycle management.
As a long-standing partner to the aerospace sector, Arkema develops high-performance products specifically designed for airplanes, helicopters, etc.
To meet the needs and standards of aircraft manufacturers for cutting down on fuel consumption and building sturdier, lighter, more comfortable and more secure aircraft, Arkema provides the right solutions with its extensive product range comprised of:
Focus on... innovative glues on board
A partner to the aerospace sector for over 60 years, Bostik (which joined the Arkema Group in early 2015) develops a large number of high-tech bonding solutions specifically for aerospace, which are invisible to passengers but vital for their safety and comfort.
They include, for example, the bonding of interior panels and laminates helping make trims and fittings lighter, and flame-retardant protective glues that slow the spread of flames in the event of a fire.
