Arkema to Spotlight High-performing Polymers at Fakuma 2021

Arkema will showcase its high performance and sustainable polymers at Fakuma 2021 (booth #B2-2312) from October 12 to 16, 2021.
Product Spotlight at the Event
Arkema’s flagship brand families, Kynar® PVDF, Pebax® elastomers, Rilsan® Polyamides and Kepstan® PEKK represent some of the world’s highest performing polymers across diverse markets, such as automotive, chemical processing industry, energies, or consumer goods. Each demanding durability, longevity, and consistency of supply across the globe.
Arkema takes up the challenge of the circular economy with its high-performance polymers by currently building the world’s largest bio-factory for advanced polyamide 11 in Singapore, while also co-founding and driving “Pragati”, the world’s first sustainable castor farming program, and launching its flagship Virtucycle® program for partially and fully recycled advanced biopolymer.
The program develops loops for the collection and regeneration of high-performance polymers while minimizing CO2 emissions. Recently Arkema announced the planned acquisition of Agiplast, its historical partner in recycling operations, which will enable the company to offer a full service to customers in terms of materials circularity.
