In the space of just a few months, the Peugeot 3008 has received over twenty prizes and awards. Modern and thoroughbred styling, ecological performances, comfort… are all qualities everybody agrees on for this SUV. A great success ‘made in France’ which Altuglas International, an Arkema subsidiary, is proud to be part of thanks to its Altuglas® PMMA acrylic resin.
Arkema is proudly shining the spotlight on a project that is both innovative and unprecedented: the construction of a wind turbine blade from the Elium® thermoplastic resin. This United States first was made possible thanks to the combined expertise of major players in the chemicals and composites sectors. A collaboration orchestrated by the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI) and documented on video.
Two new MAH-grafted grades, Orevac® IM300N resin and Orevac® IM800 resin, enable processors to customize and tailor key properties in polyamide compounds, including fluidity in processing, impact resistance, and mechanical strength. These new grades have been designed to complete Arkema’s range of impact modifers. In addition, these PA modifiers are produced in the USA to better serve the North American market.
Arkema, which this year celebrates its 10th anniversary, has become a specialty chemicals and advanced materials group. The Group serves its customers by providing innovative solutions to meet some of the major challenges of today’s world: new energies, water treatment, lighter materials, everyday comfort and wellbeing.
