Our wide range of adhesives & sealants for many industries

Transportation

For many years, Arkema’s various glues and adhesives ranges have played a part in reducing the weight of road and rail vehicles as well as of the interior structures of aircraft (cabin panels).

They enhance the comfort of passengers by cutting down on noise and vibrations. Thanks to greater resistance to impact, extreme conditions and fire, they also help improve passenger safety.

Finally, some adhesives ranges offer additional guarantees for containment systems in maritime transport, e.g. for liquefied gas (methane carriers).
