Arkema, first international company to have significantly invested in powder coatings in India, is developing more solutions for low VOC and lower carbon coating technologies in expanding its offer to high solid, waterborne and UV/LED/EB. The Navi Mumbai site includes a modern manufacturing unit and a dedicated laboratory to provide application development and technical support in the area.

Arkema accelerates today the development of more sustainable solutions to support its customers and partners in India to design their next generation of solutions driven by mega-trends.

Consumer expectations for efficient home and indoor well-being include health, protection, durability, cooler buildings and user-friendly application with minimal environmental impact. At Arkema, we are committed to creating materials that advance sustainability as well as performance, and we partner across the value chain to accelerate the development of new solutions.”


Bio-based and bio-attributed coating solutions
Arkema leads in developing waterborne technologies with bio-based raw materials and low carbon feedstock such as:

Synaqua® bio based waterborne resins with up to 97% renewable based content, combine the performance properties of alkyd-based coatings with the advantages of water-based formulations.  This innovation enhances paint performance by reducing emission of hazardous substances and by minimizing the carbon footprint.

Crayvallac® performance bio additives combine performance & sustainability with their castor derivatives and bio-based polyamide additives. With a bio-content from 60 up to 100%, these rheology modifiers contribute to improve circularity and promote the use of non-fossil feedstocks.
The company will also progressively introduce powder & acrylic based bio mass-balance solutions as a complementary pathway to support our customers with drop-in high-performance solutions, more circular sourcing, and to reduced carbon footprint solutions.

Climate Conscious Technologies for cool surfaces

Arkema offers a range of cool roofing technologies to enhance indoor thermal comfort and reduce air conditioning consumption. These include the unique combination of two resins, Kynar Aquatec®, a super durable reflective paint and Encor®, an acrylic elastomeric emulsion for waterproofing and durability with 2 additives, Coapur™ PU thickeners for better compatibility and control and Coadis™, a dispersant for improved whiteness and stability.

Energy-efficient Solutions

As industries are facing rising energy costs, stricter emission regulations, and a move towards a lower carbon intensive applications; Arkema offers energy efficient solutions with Sartomer® UV-LED and EB curing technologies which are low VOC and low carbon intensive coating technologies.

Reafree® powder coating resins offer formulators a wide range of high performance products with low temperature cure powder solutions, which reduce the carbon footprint of the end user process.
