Oct '13
Arkema places innovation at the heart of its development strategy. The consecration of its intense R&D policy, for the third consecutive year Arkema ranks among the "Top 100 innovative organizations and companies” in the world, as compiled by Thomson Reuters.

This presence in an internationally recognized classification rewards the innovation efforts of the Group which holds nearly 5,500 patents and files no fewer than 150 priority research patents every year around the world.

Mostly focused on sustainable development, the technological advances yielded by Arkema’s R&D in specialty polymers make the Group one of most innovative chemicals manufacturers in the world. K2013 is the opportunity for Arkema to showcase its latest significant innovations in its fluoropolymers, high-performance polyamides, polyolefins, organic peroxides, and plastic additives ranges

Powering plastics performances for a sustainable world

Developing lightweight materials to replace metal and reduce oil consumption in transport, producing technical polymers from renewable raw materials, or improving the efficiency of key components to contribute to the development of new energies, are three of R&D Arkema’s five priority areas.

Arkema provides sustainable solutions to today's big challenges

Its biosourced technical plastics (Rilsan 11, Pebax Rnew, Altuglas Rnew), ultra high performance polymers (Rilsan HT, Kynar, Altuglas Composite, Altuglas ShiedUp), plastic additives (Durastrength, Clearstrength, Plastistrength) as well as tie and sealing layer materials (Evatane, Lotryl, Lotader, Orevac, Evasin) are helping meet these major sustainability challenges. The Group has turned eco-technologies into reality with increasingly efficient materials, the key to the competitiveness of its downstream markets.

Arkema offers the plastics industry an extensive range of high performance materials for the oil&gas, automotive, aerospace, packaging and consumer goods applications. K2013 is the opportunity for Arkema to showcase its latest innovations in its fluoropolymers, high-performance polyamides, polyolefins, organic peroxides, and plastic additives ranges.
