Arkema develops new nanomaterials products

February 10/2012

(arkema) -- A global chemical player and acknowledged leader in the development of nanomaterials, Arkema confirms its ongoing commitment to developing nanomaterials with three product groups: the Graphistrength  range of carbon nanotubes, and the Nanostrength range of acrylic block copolymers, developed from its BlocBuilder  radical polymerization technology.

Arkema will be also showcasing two innovations developed from its R&D and know-how in the nanostructuring of materials: the Altuglas ShieldUp  PMMA sheet, particularly resistant to impact, and Apolhya  Solar, a thermoplastic designed for the encapsulation of new generation photovoltaic modules.
Graphistrength carbon nanotubes facilitate processing during the manufacture of compounds and liquid dispersions, while imparting outstanding electrical conductivity and/or mechanical strength to the materials. 

Nanostrength  acrylic block copolymers help nanostructure polymers in order to enhance their performances. They are incorporated as an additive into certain thermoplastic or thermoset matrices to help modify their structuring on a nanometer scale and so produce unique properties. 
The Altuglas  ShieldUp sheet is a new nanostructured acrylic glass based on Blocbuilder technology, which is meshed and organized on a nanometer scale in order to maximize its properties. This results in more lightweight glazing (50% lighter than glass) combining sturdiness and transparency at any temperature. 
Arkemas latest innovation dedicated to the photovoltaics market: Apolhya Solar, a nanostructured thermoplastic polymer designed for the encapsulation of new generation photovoltaic modules.
