Arkema covers a wide spectrum of resins and additives, with highly diverse chemistries and technologies, to the coating industry. This particular feature and this strength mean that it can adapt to its customers’ specific requirements in a large number of application markets around the globe, while meeting the growing demands of an ever more sustainable chemical activity.

The European Coatings Show (ECS) 2017, held in Nuremberg, Germany, from 4 to 6 April, is a special opportunity for Arkema’s Coatings teams to meet with their customers and so continue to build with them a productive relationship for the long term.


Building on its recent investments and announcements in the coatings, adhesives and sealants sector (investment in acrylic monomers in the United States, capacity increase in fluoropolymers and technical polymers in China, new research center in Korea, and investment in powder coating resins in India), the Group is further consolidating its worldwide presence together with its support for its global customers.


Arkema is now a leading global supplier to the coatings, adhesives and sealants market, while pursuing its innovation policy in a sector enjoying strong demand for environmentally sound, tough and durable products.


Over and above its geographic presence and its ability to offer innovative solutions, over the last 10 years and more, Arkema has above all built a relationship of trust and close cooperation with its customers. A relationship based on open dialogue, responsiveness, proximity, and a unique ability to offer tailor-made solutions, as the following approach, showcased at ECS 2017, aptly sums up: “Good things happen when chemistry gets personal”.

  • Automotive - Sartomer – Sarbio® resins and additives for paints, solvent-free protective varnishes and top coats for plastic surfaces.
