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.
Arkema, with its subsidiaries, will present technologies of coatings is showcasing one of the coating industry’s broadest technology and business offerings at ABRAFATI 2017. The company will display products spanning every aspect of coating formulation, including technologies previously unavailable in the region. Arkema Coating Resins products on display at ABRAFATI include: binders for architectural coatings, binders for durable, flexible waterproofing formulas, high-performance elastomeric latexes for Cool Roof Coatings, traffic paint binders offering excellent fast-dry performance and durability, and binders for cements, mortars and grouts.

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.
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.
