Focusing on its corporate mission, the company is constantly delivering new services contributing to: the development of all segments of the composites value chain in all markets, the promotion of emerging application sectors of composite materials, the demonstration of the key benefits of composites for end-users, the JEC team and its networks source and highlight advanced materials & technologies, provide information & data, publish on & offline media content, organize exhibitions, meetings & events, and drive international programs to support research, innovation and entrepreneurship.

High performance and quality on our composites and avdanced materials!

Aerospace, automotive, boating, sports equipment, wind power… Manufacturers are showing growing interest in biomaterials, lightweight materials and the recycling of their products. Arkema develops resins and polymers that make it possible to manufacture recyclable composites, innovative additives for all types of composites, thermoplastics or thermosets, which make them more resistant, and structural adhesives for high-performance and easy-to-use assemblies.

Elium® thermoplastic resins are unique on the market and are used to make thermoplastic and recyclable composite parts. Kepstan® PEKK, thanks to this high performance polyether (PEKK), the final composite acquires a high resistance to violent impacts, high temperatures and very aggressive chemicals. Kynar® PVDF which offers enhanced mechanical properties including increased rigidity, excellent resistance to high temperatures, UV, chemicals and fire. Rilsan® PA11 100% biobased, this high performance polyamide has properties of chemical resistance to abrasion and impact, at high and low temperature. Pebax® thermoplastic elastomers. Sartomer® advanced (bio based) crosslinkers & reactive diluents enable lower VOCs content and enhanced performances. 

Our global offering for Composites won’t be completed without our solutions of additives: Luperox® organic peroxides, the unique easily dipersible core-shell powder toughening agent Clearstrength® XT100Nanostrength® self-assembling block copolymers provinding resistance and transparency, Orgasol® polyamide powders used as toughening agent, Graphistrength® electrical conductive additive, and our smart industrial adhesives and sealants solutions for composites bonding of Bostik !

New Elium® resin for solid-surface

Arkema just launched its new Elium® C445 resin for solid-surface applications. It is a liquid acrylic resin specially adapted for room temperature casting of large objects. It is perfectly formulated to receive high mineral filler rates while maintaining high water, thermal shock and scratch resistance.

Elium® resins: a revolution for construction

Elium® liquid thermoplastic resins stand out in many ways. Their suitability for recycling and for a number of processing techniques, in particular pultrusion into rods and profiles, makes it an ultra innovative choice material. 
This adaptability opens up new prospects: for reinforcing rods of armored concrete made of composites which can be hot-cast thanks to the thermoplastic nature of the Elium® resin ; also for structural cables used in the construction of pre-stressed concrete structures and bridges. 

Arkema composites are also semi-finished products!

Plan your visit on Arkema stand at JEC World 2022, and you will also find out about our unique range of composite semi-finished products made from high performance thermoplastic resins: unidirectional tapes with continuous carbon fiber and matrix reinforcement: Rilsan® Matrix polyamide for automotive structural parts, Kynar® PVDF for the oil sector (Barrflex® TU) in partnership with Barrday, and Kepstan® PEKK for the aerospace sector (in partnership with Hexcel).

Focus on our 3D Printing solutions

Today the 3D Printing Solutions of Arkema present the most comprehensive portfolio of high performance materials for additive manufacturing. We provide solutions combining the best of both worlds: 3D printing and composites. The partnership between Continuous Composites and Sartomer, an Arkema Business Line, is aimed at combining Continuous Composites’ patented continuous fiber 3D printing technology (CF3D®) with Sartomer’s N3xtDimension® photocurable resin solutions. Furthermore,

Arkema with its high performance polymer Kepstan® PEKK has partnered with 9T Labs (Zurich), a start-up specializing in the 3D printing of thermoplastic composites that has developed a technology that automates the manufacture of composites using additive manufacturing (AM) and advanced software algorithms.
