France : Successful startup of Arkema s Kynar fluoropolymer 50% capacity increase at its Changshu site, China.
Based in Changshu, the new line dedicated to the production of Kynar and its VF2 (vinylidene fluoride) monomer will bolster the Group s presence in emerging countries, while sustaining its development in fast growing specialty products. These new capacities will enable the Group to better meet global demand for PVDF, both in traditional markets such as coatings, chemical engineering and offshore oil extraction currently experiencing strong growth, and in emerging applications like water treatment, lithium-ion batteries, and photovoltaic panels.
Thus Arkema, the world leader in PVDF, is well placed to accommodate the growth of its customers ever more effectively by offering top quality and proximity service as well as a global offering in the United States with the Calvert City site, in Europe with the Pierre-Benite site where a 50% capacity increase has also been announced, and now in China with the Changshu site.
