We have a growing population that is increasingly urban, with exponentially growing needs for food, long-term housing, access to drinking water and hygiene products. A large part of Arkema’s portfolio is aimed at fulfilling these essential needs.
Our Kynar® PVDF is used to make filtration membranes to produce water that is free from dirt and ultrafine particles, including viruses and bacteria.
Our 100% bio-based Rilsan® fine powders provide pipes with long-lasting protection against corrosion.
Our Albone® hydrogen peroxide and flocculants made using our acrylic acid contribute to the effective functioning of water treatment plants.
Our acrylic, alkyd and polyester resins are used to produce very hard-wearing paints with low VOCs.
Our acrylic acid is used to produce superabsorbent polymers for the manufacture of billions of diapers manufactured every year, and fastened with a few grams of Bostik adhesives.
Coatex’s Ethacryl™ additives reduce the amount of water required to produce concrete by 30%.
Our MeSH, or methyl mercaptan, is a sulfur compound used to produce methionine, an essential dietary supplement for animal feed.
