Arkema announced a project to increase its linear mercaptans production capacities to support the demand growth of polymers for transportation and electronics markets. This incremental investment would increase the Houston (Texas) plant’s manufacturing capacity by up to 30 percent.
Arkema will open its 3D Printing Center of Excellence, located at its Sartomer Exton, PA facility. In this advanced R&D lab, Sartomer and its partners will further develop cutting-edge 3D printing resins through innovative material research and collaboration. This new center will complete the Arkema’s worldwide R&D network dedicated to the development of advanced material for additive manufacturing.
With immediate effect or as soon as contracts allow, Arkema increases the prices of its Dianol® range by 10%. This price increase is required to offset the tightness of key raw materials which lead to price increases and to face a strong market demand.
To support the strong worldwide demand in ultra-high performing powders for industrial applications, in particular in the coatings, composite and 3D printing markets, Arkema is to expand its global production capacity at its Mont site (France) by more than 50%. This investment of around €20 M will come on stream in the second half of 2019.
Arkema confirms a detailed investment review, with its partner Novus International, Inc., to double production capacities at Arkema’s Beaumont Thiochemicals site in the United States. This project will support the strong global growth in the animal nutrition market and further strengthens Arkema’s world leading position in high value-added sulfur derivatives.
Due to steady energy and raw materials price increase, Arkema will increase Oxygenated solvents product range prices from 70 to 120 € per ton. The new prices will be effective June 1st, 2018 or as contracts allow.
