To support the strong worldwide demand in ultra-high performing powders for industrial applications, in particular in the coatings, composite and 3D printing markets, Arkema is to expand its global production capacity at its Mont site (France) by more than 50%. This investment of around €20 M will come on stream in the second half of 2019.
Orgasol® specialty polyamides powders are known for their exceptionally tightly controlled particle size distribution and their outstanding toughness.
They are often specified as ultra-high performing formulation additives, notably for coatings and advanced composite materials, as well as in the 3D printing.
This project will support the steady customer growth in these industrial applications.
