Arkema recently announced it has started its new 60,000 metric ton/year emulsions facility on its Changshu platform. The plant, part of Arkema’s Coating Resins business unit, is intended to serve customers in the Asia-Pacific region with a full line of waterborne emulsion polymers for coatings and adhesives applications.

“The full startup of this new facility is an important event for our customers in the Asia-Pacific region,” said Richard Jenkins, Global Group president for Arkema Coating Resins. “We promised our customers local manufacturing of innovative, market-leading products, produced in a modern, automated facility with a focus on consistent, repeatable quality, and environmental responsibility. Our new facility delivers on each of those commitments and helps place Arkema in the forefront of raw material suppliers, both in the Asia-Pacific region, and globally.” 

The plant produces a range of emulsion polymers used as binders for architectural coatings, building and construction products, adhesives, and specialty coatings.
