The Technical Polymers team will promote Kynar® PVDF film solutions for high durability solar module backsheet laminates. REI provides the ultimate business platform for the meetings and industry events, uniting an elite class of buyers from India and around the world.
Technical Polymers presents high-performance solutions for water management, including Kynar® PVDF and Rilsan®® Fine Powders PA11 coatings. Kynar® PVDF is the preferred material for high performance ultrafiltration and microfiltration membranes for excellent mechanical strength & toughness, excellent chemical resistance, heat resistance, and high solution stability. Rilsan® Fine Powders provide exceptional corrosion, impact, and abrasion resistance.
Arkema provides plenum-rated polymers used for corrosive waste drainage pipes and other components. Select grades of Kynar® PVDF can easily achieve the flame spread and smoke developed rating of 25/50 when tested in full accordance with ASTM E 84 or UL 723. With its exceptional chemical resistance and mechanical strength, Kynar® PVDF pipe is an excellent choice for use in the plenum for applications such as corrosive waste drainage and laboratory chemical systems. Kynar® PVDF is UL® listed as well as ICC-ES PMG-1060 and IAPMO ER 0250 compliant.
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 standard product line, Arkema also offers Kynar Flex® 3030 (a high melt point, flexible grade with low temperature ductility), Kyna® Foam (for lower density), and Kynar® UHM (a glass reinforced product for increased strength and high creep resistance). 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 fall short in chemical and temperature resistance. Pebax® elastomers and Rilsan® PA11 are also excellent polyamide solutions for applications like tubing where strength and long-term resilience are required.
As a leading supplier of high performance polymers to the wire and cable industry, Arkema’s Technical Polymers are commonly used for applications where extreme protection and reliability are required. A wide range of materials are available including Kynar® PVDF, Rilsan® polyamides, Pebax® elastomers, Orgalloy® alloys, and Apolhya® modified polyolefins. Key characteristics of these outstanding polymers include: high temperature resistance, low flame and smoke properties, chemical resistance, low temperature flexibility, and ease of processing. Arkema’s long chain polyamides are excellent for electrical connectors and include Rilsan® HT polymers for high temperature applications and Rilsan® Clear polymers for applications that demand optical clarity. The world is becoming more extreme, and an extreme world needs extreme materials.
For more than 17 years, AABC has organized the preeminent events covering vehicle electrification, where chief battery technologists from leading automotive OEMs, and key members of the supply chain, discuss the latest technology trends in the rapidly expanding market of advanced vehicles and the batteries that will power them. Our team will promote Kynar® PVDF for electrode binders and separator coatings in Lithium Ion batteries.
Recognized as the principal exhibition in the plastics industry, Fakuma is focused on innovations in the fields of medical engineering, lightweight constructions, and energy efficiency. The core segments of the trade show are 3D printing, Extrusion, Injection molding, and Thermoforming. We will present our innovative solutions in markets such as Automotive, CPI, and 3D printing. We will also take this opportunity to present our progress in injection molding technologies.
The CWP was first launched in 2008. More and more wind power enterprises, experts, scholars, and tech elites have joined the CWP. CWP is well connected to the industry and has become a barometer for China's wind power industry. We plan to promote Rilsan® Fine Powders durable PA11 coatings at the event.
Our bio-based Rilsan® Clear polyamides are the high performance solutions with exceptional overmolding properties, which is highly important for innovative frames combining multiple materials. IOFT is Asia's leading optical trade fair held in the fashion-conscious Japan market.
Technical Polymers has always been involved in proposing innovative bio-based polyamides for highly demanding markets, especially in the cycling industry. We will promote the exceptionally lightweight and tough Pebax® elastomers, as well as our Rilsan® PA11 and Kynar® PVDF solutions at the fair.
Arkema Technical Polymers group will exhibit and present the “Extreme Materials” performance of Rilsan® HT resins at the Performance Polyamides conference. Join us to hear details of how these Bio-sourced Rilsan® HT resins offer new possibilities for under the hood thermal management and metal replacement. The unique balance of chemical and long-term heat aging resistance makes these “Extreme Materials” perform in contact with the most aggressive automotive fluids (e.g. blow-by gases, EGR condensates, hot oil, engine coolant, A/C refrigerant). Rilsan® HT resins feature high flexibility and low density for efficient weight reduction in hot and demanding environments.
Our bio-based Rilsan® Clear polyamides are the high performance solutions with exceptional overmolding properties, which is highly important for innovative frames combining multiple materials.
