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.
Carbon, the world’s leading digital manufacturing company and Arkema, a pioneer in advanced liquid resins solutions through its Sartomer business line, announce a strategic partnership through an investment in the startup’s capital, to deliver a new era of materials performance and supply chain model for Carbon’s manufacturing partners.
Since its inception in 2013, Massivit 3D has partnered with Sartomer, a business line of Arkema, benefitting from its market-leading portfolio of N3xtDimension® UV-curable liquid resins, which are the advanced liquid resins that make up a significant portion of Massivit 3D’s unique, proprietary Gel Dispensing Printing (GDP) technology. This technology enables the super-fast production of super-sized, lightweight, hollow 3D-printed models up to 1.8 meters/6 feet high, giving Massivit’s customers the power of 3D advertising.
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.
Arkema will promote its high performance materials for 3D Printing at the Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) 2019 Conference in Chicago, IL -US, from March 31 to April 4, 2019. During technical sessions, our experts will present how our materials contribute to unlock new industrial applications.
At TCT Asia, Shanghai, February 21-23, Arkema will showcase its new collaborative innovations in advanced materials for all major 3D printing technologies: powder bed fusion, filament extrusion and UV curing.
Sartomer, a business unit of Arkema, will feature the latest advancements in UV/EB curing products at CHINACOAT 2018. Sartomer Asia experts will share their deep understanding of the innovative solutions and technology needed to advance UV/EB curing performance for adhesives, specialty coatings, graphic arts and 3D printing at Arkema booth E37-42, Zone 7, Hall 2.1. In addition, Sartomer Asia will hold a technical seminar on newly developed polyester acrylates.
At Formnext 2018, Frankfurt, November 13-16, Arkema will showcase under its newly launched ‘3D Printing Solutions by Arkema’ platform, its market leading product portfolio and innovations for each of the major 3D Printing technologies: UV curing, powder bed fusion, and filament extrusion.
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.
