Arkema Inc. to exhibit new product technology at IBEX and CAMX shows in Sept. and Oct.

- Press release
Arkema is pleased to share its new Elium® liquid thermoplastic resins and industry standard Luperox® organic peroxides at The International Boatbuilders Exhibition and Conference 2015 and The Composites and Advanced Materials Expo 2015. Elium® resins and Luperox® peroxides together produce thermoplastic composite parts through traditional thermoset methods, such as RTM or infusion. This provides an innovative option for makers of high performance products to avoid investing in expensive capital equipment.

Thermoplastic performance with closed mold production technology is a game-changer.  Elium® resins are pre-promoted, saving cost.  Parts made with Elium® resins are easily thermoformed, welded, or recycled back into production. Luperox® organic peroxides offer a wide range of options for any and all composite makers in closed mold, open mold, and more challenging process designs.


Arkema invites you to join them for a discussion at IBEX booth #1946.  The show will be held Sept. 15-17, 2015, at the Kentucky Expo Center in Louisville, KY.


Arkema also is moving beyond the limitations of thermoset composites.  Its Elium® liquid thermoplastic resins join a host of other cutting edge materials, such as Arkema’s Kepstan® resins and Nanostrength® acrylic modifiers that answer the needs of the industry to provide performance gains while meeting increasing demands for “lightweighting”.


Offering more environmentally sensitive composites systems is another industry opportunity.  For instance, styrene-free technologies likely will become more important in the coming years.  Arkema’s Sartomer division offers functional crosslinkers from its Saret® product line to join with Arkema’s innovative BlocBuilder® reactivity controllers.  These products can help reduce loss during production and can help makers reduce styrene content while improving mechanical performance.


You may join Arkema at CAMX booth #H93.  The show is October 27-29, 2015 in Dallas, TX.
