Albone® hydrogen peroxide and Alpure® sodium chlorate are vital for bleaching pulp. Arkema’s affiliate Coatex has unique knowledge and expertise to improve paper coating. Its Rheocoat™ and Rheocarb™ additives control the viscosity of the liquid coatings applied to the paper’s surface.

Rilsan® Clear is one of the few polymers to combine chemical and impact resistance with thinness, lightness, softness, transparency and deep, high-gloss colors. Eyewear makers prize these qualities for creating imaginative designer styles. Rilsan® Clear weighs 20% less than polycarbonate and 40% less than aluminum. Tablet and smartphone manufacturers have recently adopted it to make ultra-light, streamlined internal casings. Rilsan® Clear is also a “green” plastic, made from castor beans.

There’s strong demand in the cosmetics market for natural products. Oleris® is a 100% bio-based (castor oil) synthetic intermediate for flavors and fragrances. Orgasol® Green Touch is another bio-based innovation, an ultrafine powder used as a texturizing agent in makeup (lipstick, mascara, powder), skincare creams and sunscreens.

Pebax® elastomer has made diehard fans out of the big sports brands. Its unique combination of strength, lightness and flexibility goes into their high-performance soccer and running shoe outsoles, ski boot shells and more. How do we know this? Two-thirds of the goals in the UEFA Euro 2016 were scored by players wearing shoes with Pebax® outsoles!

We detect gas leaks at home or on the street immediately by their distinctive smell. Yet gas has no natural odor. Spotleak®, a sulfide-containing odorant, is added by gas companies to make it safe to transport gas. The smell disappears when the gas is burned.

ZeroCreep Avancé™ is the latest-generation Bostik adhesive for disposable diaper fasteners and elastic side strips. It offers maximum elastic stretch and perfect adhesion, to move with baby and prevent leaks. It only takes two or three grams of the adhesive to assemble a diaper’s 20 components. Another product for diapers that gets the job done is the superabsorbent polymer (SAP) made with Arkema acrylic acid. Less than 10 grams of this gel can absorb up to 100 times its weight in liquid.

Multilayer food packaging — bottles, bricks, bags and trays — are commonplace thanks to the excellent adhesive properties of our functional polyolefins Orevac®, Lotader®, Lotryl® and Evatane®. Manufacturers use these adhesives to combine the advantages of different materials (plastic, cardboard, aluminum) and manufacture packaging that acts as an oxygen barrier and keeps food fresh.
 
 
 
 

More durable returnable bottles

Certincoat® and Tegoglas®, two glass surface treatment solutions applied when bottles are manufactured, ensure more robust performance and prevent scratches. Bottle manufacturers use Kercoat® protective coating to delay the appearance of scratches and white scuff marks on glass and Opticoat® to mask the scuffs that do occur. Together they can lengthen the life of returnable bottles by as many as 50 cycles.

Bostik’s Reseal® adhesive for food packaging seals in freshness, yet lets you open and reclose cheese, ham and other deli packages dozens of times, until it’s all gone. Food keeps longer and you waste less.
