Tough and durable carbon nanotubes & copolymers

­­­On the strength of its expertise in nanotechnology and nanomaterials, Arkema offers various ranges of carbon nanotubes and acrylic block copolymers capable of imparting excellent properties to thermoplastics.

By modifying the molecular structure of certain polymers on a nanometric scale, it is possible to enhance their mechanical properties while maintaining their light weight. Arkema is renowned for its expertise in this field, unique in the world.

Over the last ten years, the Group has developed:

  • A range of carbon nanotubes (CNT), Graphistrength® that impart exceptional properties to both thermoplastics and thermosets in terms of mechanical strength and electrical conductivity.
  • A patented acrylic block copolymer technology, Nanostrength® that produces highly durable polymers weighing less than traditional polymers.
