Arkema worldwide

At Arkema, we make innovative materials for a more sustainable world.  For fighting corrosion, our solutions include Kynar® PVDF resins and Rilsan® Polyamide 11 and Kepstan® PEKK powder coatings. Kynar® PVDF has high-temperature and chemical resistance, low permeability, and high strength. Kynar Aquatec® PVDF waterborne resins enhance anti-corrosion coating performance by improving moisture and salt barrier properties, chemical resistance and UV resistance in extreme climates. Bio-based Rilsan® PA11 powder coatings have great corrosion protection, impact and abrasion resistance, flexibility, and food & water approvals. Kepstan® PEKK offers ultra-high performance for the most demanding applications.
