Sartomer, a business line of Arkema, recently announced it has installed in-house electron beam (EB) labs. The equipment intends to enable customers to develop and test innovative EB-curing formulations on a small scale using Sartomer’s liquid resins. Standalone EB lab units were installed in its research and development centers in France and the U.S., with a third installation planned for its Asia operations.
“The EB laboratory installations fortify Sartomer’s commitment to providing the most advanced liquid resin solutions and R&D services to customers around the world,” said Doug Sharp, president and CEO, Sartomer USA. “This investment also enables us to help prospective customers looking to use EB curing in existing applications or test proof of concept of new ideas.”
“The addition of the EB lab units is part of our dedication to working with our customers to find the best and most efficient curing systems,” said Frédéric Taché, market manager, coatings, adhesives and chemical intermediates, Sartomer Europe-ARKEMA Group. “EB curing is a clean technology that enables high-quality finished products, and we’re excited to offer customers the ability to expand their range of applications and give them a leading competitive edge in the marketplace.”
