ARKEMA: Thermoplastic Resins

March 12, 2014

This company has introduced its first range of liquid thermoplastic resins under the brand Elium®. These resins reportedly polymerize quickly and can be used to design structural parts, as well as aesthetic elements in applications ranging from the automotive and transportation industries to wind power, athletic equipment, and the building sector.

The resins can be used for lightweight and resilient composite parts. Composite parts made from Elium are reportedly 30-50% lighter than the same parts made from steel, but offer the same resistance.
