Arkema, a leader in high-performance materials for composites and photocurable liquid resins for additive manufacturing, is strengthening its partnership with Continuous Composites, creator of Continuous Fiber 3D Printing technology (CF3D®). Arkema has invested in the American start-up to rapidly advance the development of 3D composite manufacturing, a groundbreaking innovation for strong, lightweight structures.
Arkema showcases its latest innovations at TCT Asia 2020 in the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC) in Shanghai, China. The event is expected to be one of the first in-person exhibitions to occur after the peak of COVID-19 and will take place from July 8-10, 2020.
Sartomer, a pioneer in advanced photocurable resin solutions, and Paxis, a 3D printing innovator, are co- developing custom materials for Paxis’ WAV™ (Wave Applied Voxel) additive manufacturing process technology.
As members of business and industry worldwide join forces to battle the COVID-19 pandemic, Sartomer is actively supporting its partners in the food/beverage and medical sectors that are critical to addressing current global challenges. Supply chain reliability is essential, and Sartomer is dedicated to working solutions to enable the availability of products, operating its four plants around the world, while prioritizing the health and safety of our team members and partners at all times.
Sartomer, a business line of Arkema, is celebrating a new “double zero” safety record, achieved at its combined plants, R&D centers and headquarters around the world. On February 28, 2020, Sartomer accomplished one full year with zero safety incidents in two Company categories: no recordable injuries and no major process safety events. Sartomer is very proud to share this achievement, which brings the Company to the highest standard of safety and demonstrates strong engagement in managing its activities as a responsible market leader.
Sartomer, a business line of Arkema, will feature high-performance liquid resin solutions that enhance performance properties of composite materials at JEC World. In addition, Sartomer and Continuous Composites will conduct exclusive onsite co-presentations on advances in additive manufacturing of composite materials.
Arkema is associating with new partners and expanding the use of its high-performance solutions to the 3D manufacturing of composite materials, a major development in lightweight materials. This new technology, which combines the power of 3D printing and composite materials where Arkema has a leading position, will offer new perspectives and new applications in the aeronautics, automotive, energy and construction sectors to meet the growing demand for lightweight materials.
On November 15 Arkema inaugurated, in the presence of Thierry Le Hénaff, the Group’s Chairman and CEO, and Hervé Morin, President of the Normandy Region, a new Global Center of Excellence for 3D Printing within its Cerdato Research & Development Center in Serquigny, Normandy (France). Arkema and the Normandy Region intend this new center of excellence dedicated to additive manufacturing based on high-performance polymers, to be of benefit to companies and training organizations in the region, as part of a collaborative initiative striving for swift adoption of these new production methods.
Arkema, a leader in advanced polymers and liquid resins for 3D printing, is taking steps forward to help customers accelerate additive manufacturing of high-tech parts. The Group has expanded its list of industrial partnerships and collaborative research programs all along the supply chain.
Sartomer, a business line of Arkema, will feature the latest developments for energy curing systems at CHINACOAT 2019 in Zone 8, Hall W3, booth W3.E05. Experts from Sartomer Asia will be available to share information regarding innovative bio-sourced acrylates and advanced materials for 3D printing, specialty coatings, electronics and inks applications.
