TCT Asia is one of the world’s leading design-to-manufacturing events focused on additive manufacturing/3D printing, design, and engineering technology. Arkema has solutions in liquid resins for UV curing, thermoplastic powders for powder bed fusion, and thermoplastic pellets for filament extrusion. Stop by our booth to learn about all the different types of high-performance materials you can now print with!
Aquatech China is the largest international exhibition for process, drinking & wastewater in Asia. The Technical Polymers team will promote Kynar® PVDF for microfiltration and ultrafiltration membrane applications and Rilsan® fine powder coating solutions for the water treatment and oil & gas industry.
Cinte Techtextil China is Asia's largest and leading trade fair for technical textile and nonwoven products. The Technical Polymers team will promote Platamid® hot melt adhesives for both woven and non-woven substrates.
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.
Arkema's Kynar® PVDF is used as a binder in both anodes and cathodes, as well as a separator coating for Lithium Ion Batteries. Kynar® HSV series provides exceptional adhesion in binder applications, which allows for lower loading and higher capacities. The Kynar Flex® LBG series provides excellent adhesion to the separator and the electrodes in order to withstand high voltages in separator applications. Both resin technologies are global, industry standards, utilized as high-performance materials for the LIB market. Kynar® Fluoropolymers are available in powder, pellet, and aqueous forms. In addition to the famous Kynar® PVDF binders, Arkema also provides high performance electrolyte salts LiFSI and LiTDI, and Carbon Nanotubes (CNT).
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, Kestan® PEKK copolymer and Apolhya® modified polyolefins. Key characteristics of these outstanding polymers include high temperature resistance, low flame and smoke properties, chemical resistance, low temperature flexibility, low shrinkback and ease of processing. Arkema’s long chain polyamides and alloys are excellent for power cables 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.
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 resins are well known for high purity water handling applications in the Semiconductor and Biotech Industries. Kynar® PVDF and Kynar Flex® PVDF can be fabricated into high purity piping, tubing, tanks, valves, fittings, pumps, nozzles, and other fluid handling components. Kynar® polysmer is fully compatible with water as well as disinfectants such as ozone, bleach, acids, and alcohols. Kynar® PVDF can be autoclaved as a method of sterilization. For ultra-high performance our team will also promote Kepstan® PEKK.
