Strong Arkema presence at the 2013 edition of JEC Composites!

- Press release
Arkema is exhibiting at the JEC Composites tradeshow in Paris, Porte de Versailles, from March 12 to 14 2013 (Stand V65), when it will launch its latest Altuglas® Composite solution, the first thermoplastic resin that can be processed like thermoset materials. The Group will also showcase its full range of nanostructured materials as well as ultra high performance materials.

A global chemical player and a key leader in advanced materials, Arkema demonstrates its ongoing commitment in this field, with three product groups: 

  • Graphistrength® carbon nanotubes, sold as pre-composites for use in a variety of thermoplastic matrices and water-soluble solid masterbatches for epoxy formulations and aqueous solutions;
  • Nanostrength® acrylic block copolymers, which help nanostructure certain polymers in order to enhance their properties;
  • PEKK, marketed under the tradename Kepstan®, an ultra high performance material for aerospace applications, the only polymer currently on the market capable of withstanding continuous temperatures of the order of 260°C and with comparable properties to those of certain metals.

The following products will also be showcased: 

  • Arkema’s comprehensive range of crosslinking agents: Luperox® organic peroxides;
  • Luperfoam®, a very easy to use blowing agent for unsaturated polyester foam;
  • Blocbuilder® RC50, a reactivity controller inhibitor that provides excellent control over the curing of thermoset resins;
  • Sartomer’s methacrylate solutions with an excellent HSE profile, as an alternative to styrene;
  • and finally, Orgasol® (polyamide 6 and 12) fine powders used as binders or as additives in glassfiber and carbon fiber composites in the aerospace sector, and Rilsan® polyamide fine powders (100% biosourced) that impart outstanding chemical and mechanical resistance to thermoplastic composites.
