Arkema announces a distribution agreement with Zyvex Performance Materials (ZPM), a recognized worldwide leader in nanomaterials applications, for nano-enhanced liquid epoxy resins in the European market. The products powered by ZPM will be sold under the Arkema's brand name Graphistrength.

“This is a tremendous opportunity to bring Zyvex Performance Materials technology to the European market, and strengthen our already close ties with Arkema” says Lance Criscuolo, President of ZPM. “Arkema will be able to offer customers the most advanced and highest performing resin system available today”.

“We are delighted to reinforce our partnership with ZPM who has worked very closely with us over the last years” comments Jean-Marc Corpart Global Graphistrength Business Manager. “This arrangement allows us to enlarge our Graphistrength offering with outstanding materials that will be key for the development of new markets”.

This new line of liquid epoxy resins developed by ZPM and Arkema are high performance, multi-wall carbon nanotube strengthened epoxies suitable for numerous composites and adhesives applications. It processes as easily as unfilled epoxy resin and can be cured with a wide range of curing agents. It will come at first in bisphenol-A or bisphenol-F and a soon to be released tetrafunctional resin system.

Graphistrength epoxy resins offer dramatic increases in mechanical properties when compared to standard epoxy resins while causing little or no change to current manufacturing processes. These property increases - coming through the characteristics of Arkema's Graphistrength multi-wall carbon nanotubes which are extremely strong, very small but lightweight - will allow Arkema customers to make a lighter part with the same, or greater, strength. ZPM has developed technology that successfully incorporates these Graphistrength carbon nanotubes into epoxy resins to take advantage of their outstanding properties.

Graphistrength epoxy resins are recommended for use in composite manufacturing processes such as filament winding, pultrusion, hand lay-up, and prepreg. Graphistrength epoxy resins can be used with most types of reinforcing fibers and fabrics such as carbon, glass, and aramid. It can also be used in adhesive and coatings applications with the proper choice of curing agent.
