CBME China is the world’s largest sourcing event for baby, child and maternity products & Services. Arkema is targeting the baby bottle market with Rilsan® Clear, a transparent polyamide, that is partially bio-based with high temperature resistance. Rilsan® Clear is BPA free with FDA certificate.
Rilsan® fine powder coatings extend the service life and reduce operating costs of pumps, valves, pipes and other water industry equipment. This thermoplastic coating made from a renewable resource offers better abrasion resistance than epoxy coatings, lower cost than stainless steel, as well as long term resistance to corrosion and impact. In addition, pumps coated with Rilsan® fine powder coatings exhibit reduced cavitation and pressure loss. NSF 61 grades are available.

Kynar® PVDF and Kynar Flex® PVDF are chemically resistant polymer materials that are excellent at handling wastewater, acids, chlorides, and have the added benefit of high resistance to the effects of radiation. Components made from Kynar® PVDF include piping, pumps, valves, fittings, tubing, filtration equipment, coatings and holding tanks. For over 50 years Kynar® PVDF has been used to construct chemical containment components for uranium and plutonium based technologies at major processing facilities throughout the United States.
Arkema Inc. offers a range of technical polymers including Kynar® fluoropolymers, Pebax® elastomers, and Rilsan® polyamides, that are suitable for food contact applications. Applications requiring high temperature and chemical resistance, abrasion resistance, ductility, flexibility, high mechanical strength, and sunlight resistance can all be met with one or more of these polymers. Arkema’s technical polymers are thermoplastic and can be injection molded, compression molded, extruded, and applied as a powder coating. Articles such as piping, tubing, fittings, pumps, tanks and vessels, belting, nozzles, and fasteners can be made from this polymer group to meet special needs in the processing of meat, fish & poultry, dairy products, acidic juices, beverages (hot and cold), sauces, and alcoholic spirits.
Renewable Energy India Expo intends to accelerate the growth of India’s renewable energy sector and contribute to the country’s sustainable economic development. Arkema is promoting Kynar® multilayer film used for photovoltaic backsheet providing opacity to UV light and excellent weatherability.
For over 50 years, Arkema’s Technical Polymers have been the materials of choice for high performance wire and cable applications. Rilsan® polyamide resins and Kynar® / Kynar Flex®® fluoropolymer resins offer a wide range of extreme properties to suit the most demanding needs of the wire & cable industry.
Rilsan® resins are long chain polyamides that offer exceptional performance compared to short chain polyamides including chemical resistance, low moisture absorption, and low density. Kynar® resins retain excellent physical properties in adverse chemical and thermal environments allowing them to be used when more flexibility and toughness are required. The chemical resistance of Kynar® and Kynar Flex® PVDF resins allows for use in corrosive chemicals, acids, and extreme [high and low] temperature environments. Kynar® resins also provide exceptional abrasion resistance, excellent UV resistance, inherent flame resistance, and low smoke generation.
At Intertextile Apparel Fabrics, a comprehensive platform for apparel fabrics and accessories, Arkema will promote Platamid® hot melt adhesive resins and powders. Platamid® hot melt grades offer tremendous laundry and dry cleaning resistance and are widely applied in interlining and automotive headliners. Kynar® PVDF filament and Pebax® TPE will also be presented for more innovative applications.
Arkema offers a comprehensive portfolio of technical polymers: the Group is the only chemical company in the world to offer the three families of long-chain polyamides (polyamide 10, 11 and 12), as well as PVDF fluoropolymers, suitable for all plastic processing technologies (e.g. injection molding, extrusion, thermoforming, 3D printing). Arkema’s latest innovations will be showcased at Fakuma 2017, in particular those developed for use in demanding industrial, automotive, optics, and sport applications.
At PV Taiwan 2017, Asia's premier international PV exhibition, Arkema is demonstrating Kynar® film applied in a highly engineered multilayer construction with a characteristic 100% fluoropolymer outer layer. This film is a critical component of KPK™ solar backsheet constructions for outstanding exterior durability.
Arkema Inc. proudly offers Kynar 500® and Kynar Aquatec® PVDF technology for use in high performance coatings. Celebrating over fifty years of proven protection, Kynar 500® resin-based coatings provide protection against weathering, aging, and pollution on commercial, industrial and residential buildings worldwide and are the original key component of sustainable design. Also exhibiting, Bostik, Inc., an Arkema Company, manufactures adhesives and sealants that are designed to adhere to Kynar® based coatings, are Miami-Dade County approved and offer a best-in-class warranty.
Kynar® PVDF and Kynar Flex® PVDF are strong and chemically resistant fluoropolymers available in the form of pipe, tubing, fittings, valves, pumps, tower packing and semi-finished products such as rods, sheets, and block. In addition to the traditional line of products, Arkema is now introducing Kynar Flex® 3030 a high melt point flexible grade with low temperature ductility. The Kynar® product line is commonly used in heavy chemical handling industries like chlor-alkali, pulp & paper, nuclear, waste water treatment, mining, metal preparation, power plants, petrochemical, bioPharma and semiconductor industries where commodity plastics and metals may not stand the test in chemical and temperature resistance.
Hong Kong Optical Fair offers a wide range of optical products including 3D eyewear, frames & lens, reading glasses, safety eyewear, sporting & professional eyewear, sunglasses as well as other related products and technology. Our partially bio-based Rilsan® Clear is a high performance transparent polyamide with high overmoldability that is used for innovative frame designs combining multiple materials.
ChinaCoat is an international coating show that attracts thousands of visitors. Arkema presents the flagship Kynar 500® brand for its extreme weather resistance and durability. We will also promote our breakthrough Kynar Auquatec® emulsion as water based technology and our bio-based Rilsan® Fine Powders coatings for abrasion resistance and toughness.
Taipei Building Show is focusing on the theme of "eco-friendly" and "green building." Kynar 500® PVDF has been protecting some of the world's most iconic buildings over 50 years with its extreme weather resistance and durability. We will also promote Kynar Aquatec® emulsions for water based coatings that can be formulated with VOCs below 100 grams per liter.
