Arkema announces a project to acquire Lambson, a company specializing in photoinitiators for curing, a technology meeting the demands of cutting-edge markets such as electronics, 3D printing, digital ink, composites and high performance coatings. These solutions will complement the offering of Sartomer, a global leader in photocure resins, while helping speed up its development in this fast-growing market. This deal will further strengthen the share of specialties in Arkema’s product portfolio, in line with its long-term ambition.
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.
