The Arkema team will showcase our medical polymers at the world’s largest medical design and manufacturing event.
Compliant with USP Class VI and ISO 10993-4 & -5 biocompatibility testing, Arkema offers a wide range of polymers designed for the medical market. Come and visit us at our booth number 1948 to discover how our Pebax®, Rilsan®, Rilsamid®, Kynar® and Altuglas® medical resins can answer your needs!
Arkema offers high performance polymers including Rilsan® Polyamide 11, Kynar® PVDF, Kepstan® PEKK and thermoplastic unidirectional (UD) tapes Barrflex® for the Oil and Gas Industry. Rilsan® Polyamide 11 and Kynar® PVDF have been used in demanding Oil & Gas applications for over 40 years. Arkema’s complementary range of long chain polyamides, fluoropolymer and PAEK materials offer solutions for onshore and offshore Oil & Gas production and transportation, including ultra-high temperature and corrosive environments. Barrflex, the JV between Arkema and Barrday, offers a variety of high quality thermoplastic UD tapes to fulfill the needs for lighter and tougher materials in the O&G industry, in particular offshore. Examples of applications include but are not limited to umbilicals, flexible risers and flowlines (API17J), choke and kill lines, lined pipe, composite pipes, protective coatings, ROV cables, offshore seismic cables, downhole cables and onshore gas pipe.
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 slabs. In addition to the standard product line, Arkema also offers Kynar® 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. For ultra-high performance our team will also promote Kepstan® PEKK.
Kynar® PVDF and Kynar Flex® PVDF are used to manufacture pipes, tubing, fittings, valves, pumps, tower packing, and tanks to handle hot, strong acids in the metal preparation industry. Kynar® PVDF resists strong acids and is capable of handling high temperatures up to 150°C. In particular, Kynar® PVDF fluid handling components stand up well to HF, HCl, Nitric Acid, Sulfuric Acid, Phosphoric Acid and Chromic Acid. For ultra-high performance our team will also promote Kepstan® PEKK.
