MCure® crosslinkers for hybrid epoxy systems

  • Product range

A product range of reactive modifiers and diluents for two-part epoxy/amine cured systems. Due to their rapid reaction and excellent diluting effect, the MCure products can help formulators to produce low VOC systems required by specific applications overcoming the disadvantages of typical glycidyl ether diluent/modifiers.


  • Product

MSA LC represents the latest innovation in product development by Arkema’s R&D and corrosion experts. MSA LC is a strong acid esterification catalyst that improves yield for biodiesel producers using advantaged feeds, with significantly reduced corrosivity toward stainless steel materials.


  • Product

Methane sulfonyl chloride (MSC) is a versatile, responsive, mesyl group (CH3SO2) chemical for substitution in a number of reactions. Methane sulfonyl chloride (MSC), an acid chloride, undergoes reactions typical of this class of compounds, such as replacement of hydroxyl, amino and active alpha hydrogen, hydrolysis, etc.


Madquat MC 75

  • Product

Madquat 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.


  • Product

Flotation uses the ability of surfactants to interact with surface sites of specific mineral species, making them hydrophobic. The minerals are thus carried up to the surface by air bubbles.

Melioran® is a recognized anionic collector for reverse flotation of phosphates, used for calcium carbonate removal from francolite.

Mesityl oxide

  • Product

Mesityl oxide (MO) is a α-unsaturated ketone. It is mainly used in fine chemistry in the synthesis of vitamins, flavour and fragrances. It is also an intermediate in the synthesis of MIBK, MIBC and DIBK. MO can be a used as a solvent in inks, coating or agrochemicals.

Methane Sulfonic Acid (MSA 70%)

  • Product

MSA 70% (Methane Sulfonic Acid - CAS 75-75-2) is a strong acid widely used as a catalyst (esterification, alkylation, etc.). Thanks to its versatility, MSA 70% is a viable substitute for organic and inorganic strong acids in a variety of applications. 

Methane Sulfonic Acid Anhydrous (AMSA or MSAA)

  • Product

Arkema AMSA (methane sulfonic acid anhydrous - CAS 75-75-2) enjoys wide use in the pharmaceutical industry due to its high acidity and high miscibility in aqueous and most organic media. Its uses include: 




  • formation of pharmacologically acceptable API salts

  • extraction, crystallization and purification of synthetic intermediates

  • synthetic raw material

  • acid catalyst, particularly for formation and removal of protecting groups

  • dehydrating reaction solvent




AMSA is a strong organic acid (pKa-1.92). As such, it is highly corrosive in its acid form.


  • Product

Methylacrylate is a colorless liquid above its freezing point of -75°C ( -103°F). Its homopolymer glass transition temperature is 10°C (51°F).
It can be polymerized with each other and copolymerized with other monomers to produce polymers having the optimal properties for your application.


  • Product

MIBC (Methylisobutylcarbinol) is a colorless liquid C6 branched alcohol. It is used in the synthesis of lub oil addtives (ZDDP) for anti-wear and anti-corrosion. It is also commonly used as a large range flotation frother in copper (polymetallic) and coal minings. MIBC can also be used in coatings or fine chemistry.



  • Product

MIBK (Methylisobutylketone) is a stable, medium evaporating liquid and compatible with many organic materials, which makes it a good industrial solvent. MIBK can also be used in order to extract, separate and purify various products. It is used in the pharmaceutical, agrochemical industries, in fine chemistry…


It is commonly used as a solvent in paints, lacquers, varnishes and adhesives. MIBK is also used as a chemical intermediate in the synthesis of a rubber anti-ozonant additive in tyres.

Mixland+® - Polymer-bound masterbatches

  • Product range

Mixland+® is a range patented by Arkema / MLPC International of additives for rubber industry, dispersed in a polymeric carrier which allows a better compatibility with all types of rubber. The tack phenomenon of pellets at room temperature is eliminated.
