Global chemicals manufacturer Arkema (Colombes, France) has announced that it has launched a 30% increase in photocure resin production capacity at its Sartomer site in Canton, China.

“This investment strengthens our commitment to providing the most advanced photocure resin solutions with innovative properties, as well as services, to our customers around the world and giving them a leading competitive edge in their respective markets,” said Christophe André, Executive Vice President, Advanced Materials for Arkema.

Officially inaugurated last month, the new line plans to produce UV, LED and EB liquid resins in order to meet the demand of Asia’s electronics, 3D printing, adhesives and inkjet printing markets. The coatings are reported to have high efficiency and performance benefits in photocuring systems such as: printed circuits, smartphones, tablets and television screens.

In addition, the line will also be manufacturing N3xtDimension resins for various 3D-printed products.

As part of Arkema’s strategy to develop and offer sustainable solutions, the company is complying with global standards on volatile organic compounds that are environmentally friendly and contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.

Arkema currently has various production and research and development facilities throughout Europe, Asia and the United States.
