AZDN, Additives for polymers and resins
As derivatives of Hydrazine Hydrate, the azo-bis-Isobutyronitrile, AZDN or AIBN, is used as blowing agent for PVC foam, or as polymerization initiator for synthesis of flocculant agents in water treatment.
Accolade® and Paladin®, your premier and sustainable solutions for agricultural soil fumigation
Arkema has developped Accolade® and Paladin® as fumigation solutions in various countries with a broad spectrum of effectiveness (nematicide, herbicide, fungicide). Used for crop protection and the preparation of horticultural soils, Dimethyl Disulfide (DMDS) has a proven track record of significant yield improvement. This sustainable generation of treatment is based on DMDS, a substance derived from sulfur that occurs naturally in the environment. Our solution is available in 2 applications, shank or drip and is combined to a barrier film which the manufacture is completely designed by Arkema for a safe and efficient use.
Acrylic acid is a colorless liquid above its freezing point of +13°C ( +56°F). It is fully miscible in water at +20°C (+68°F).
Acrylic acid will polymerize to form homopolymers and can be copolymerized with their esters and other vinyl monomers. Its carboxylic acid functionality provides anionic character and reactivity with alcohols and epoxides.
Arkema is a leading global producer of acrylic monomers. Thanks to their unique properties acrylic monomers improve every day life by making products last longer, allowing water based formulations wihout solvents and a cleaner environment.
Adame® is produced by transesterification.
Cationic nature linked to the tertiary amino functionality, which can be enhanced by quaternization of the tertiary amine.
Adame® is mainly used for production of cationic monomers (Adamquat).
Ability to polymerize and copolymerize.
Adamquat MC 80
Adamquat brings cationic charge to polymers.
Monomers and homopolymers are water-soluble.
They have a good copolymerizability with Acrylamide.
The main market is the production of cationic polyacrylamides used as flocculent for wastewater and sludge treatment, paper retention and drainage aids and wet and dry strength for paper sheet formation.

The Adiansol® range contains polyether polyols with different functionalities. These products are based on glycerin, trimethylolpropane (TMP), propylene glycol or amines. The Adiansol® polyols are mainly used as crosslinkers and building blocks.
Agrochemical and pharmaceutical synthesis intermediates
Mercaptans can be used for some intermediate synthesis in agrochemical and pharmaceutical markets. Sodium methyl mercaptide (SMM), ethyl mercaptan (EM) and tertio-butyl mercaptan (TBM) are used worldwide to produce intermediates entering for instance in terbufos or phorate agrochemicals.
Arkema also produces Amines, Oxygenated Solvents and Hydrazine Hydrate that can be useful in synthesizing intermediates.
Airsiev® Ox series
The Airsiev® Ox series is a range of molecular sieves designed for oxygen production by PSA (Pressure swing adsorption) process with a broad range of performances (Airsiev Ox 8 and Ox 19).
Airsiev® P series
The Airsiev® P series is a range of molecular sieves designed for air prepurification with four different performance ranges, for 140 minutes to 300 minutes of CO2 breakthrough (Airsiev P 140, P 180, P 220 and P 300).
Albone® hydrogen peroxide for industrial applications
Albone® is formulated for general hydrogen peroxide applications. It is mostly used in the bleaching of paper pulp and of natural and synthetic textile fibers, chemical synthesis, as well as environmental applications such as wastewater and gas treatment. It is also used in the mining and metal treatment industries.
Alkylphenol polysulfides are multi-functional products. This range is articulated around Vultac® and Rosinox® products. Supplied by MLPC International, Vultac® and Rosinox® are low molecular weight alkyl phenol disulfide oligomers.
Vultac® are sulfur donors and vulcanization agents for rubbers with antioxidant and tackifying properties due to their chemical structure.
Rosinox® is a bleaching agent and catalyst for disproportionation of rosin and rosin esters
Alpure® sodium chlorate
Alpure® sodium chlorate (NaClO3) by Arkema is a white crystalline solid produced from salt and water. This strong oxidant primarily serves for the generation of chlorine dioxide (ClO2), a key bleaching agent in the manufacturing of high quality chemical pulps for a large variety of papers and packaging applications.
Amine corrosion inhibitors
Our amine-based additives help to prevent corrosion in water systems (power plants, boilers...), metal working fluids or refineries. They can also act as neutralising agents or oxygen or hydrogen sulfide scavengers.
