Arkema has successfully started up the 30% capacity extension of its photocure advanced liquid resin production plant in Nansha, located south of Canton, China. Inaugurated today, this new production line will help to meet the strong demand in Asia in the electronics, 3D printing, adhesives and inkjet printing markets. This investment supports Sartomer’s strategy to develop cutting-edge solutions for advanced and sustainable curing technologies.
With the creation of this new commercial platform, Arkema aims to address the needs of the demanding and innovative 3D printing markets. The new platform will leverage an extensive range of materials dedicated to each of the major 3D printing technologies, a proven expertise, and strategic partnerships with key players in additive manufacturing.
Thus “3D Printing Solutions by Arkema” will support the 3D printing sector as it grows into an industrial manufacturing technology.
Arkema will open its 3D Printing Center of Excellence, located at its Sartomer Exton, PA facility. In this advanced R&D lab, Sartomer and its partners will further develop cutting-edge 3D printing resins through innovative material research and collaboration. This new center will complete the Arkema’s worldwide R&D network dedicated to the development of advanced material for additive manufacturing.
Sartomer is launching a new range of LM (Low Migration) acrylate monomers and oligomers, specifically designed for the formulation of UV curable inks and coatings, dedicated to indirect food contact applications.
