Arkema acquires the PIEZOTECH startup company

October 08/2010

(Arkema) -- Arkema has announced the acquisition of French company PIEZOTECH which designs and manufactures electroactive fluorinated polymers. These specialty polymers will soon have high added value applications in many sectors, including robotics, aerospace, textile, automotive and electronics.


PIEZOTECH was established following a technology transfer from Institut de Recherche Saint-Louis. It designs and markets films and sensors from electroactive fluorinated polymers and copolymers, all manufactured using a unique process.


These polymers have the ability to undergo deformation under an electric current, and conversely they convert a mechanical force into electrical energy. Another of their characteristics is their ability to store and restore energy.

A global chemical company and Frances leading chemicals producer, Arkema produces state-of-the-art specialty chemicals. With operations in more than 40 countries, 14,000 employees and seven research centers, Arkema generates annual revenue of euro 5.5 billion and holds leadership positions in all its markets.
