Arkema has increased its Kynar PVDF production capacity by 25% at its Changshu platform near Shanghai. This project will help meet the strong demand, in particular in new energies and water treatment applications. This investment will support the company’s ambition in technical polymers, and is part of its strategy to speed up the growth of its high performance materials division.

Through this investment, Arkema, which operates production facilities on the three continents of Europe, North America and Asia, asserts its position in this business.

Following the doubling of its Kynar fluoropolymers production capacity in Changshu in 2012, this latest 25% increase in the plant’s capacity will enable Arkema to further suport the growth of its customers in Asia, in particular in the new energies (batteries and photovoltaics) and water management markets, as well as in the traditional markets of coatings and industry.
