Arkema Inc. is expanding its product line and availability of Kynar® PVDF resin for membrane applications.
“Arkema recognizes the global need for improved water filtration processes,” said Dave Seiler, Arkema’s Americas Industrial Business Manager and Global Advisor for Fluoropolymers. “A key to the improved efficiency of water filtration technology is the material construction of the membrane. The materials of the future need to be durable and resistant to multiple methods of chemical and thermal treatments,” Seiler noted.
Arkema is a global leader in manufacturing of polyvinylidene fluoride resin, under the Kynar® trademark, with manufacturing facilities on three continents. The excellent chemical resistance of Kynar® PVDF resin to chlorine, bromine, acids, mild bases, peroxides, ozone, and alcohols give it a universal use as a fluid handling component material of selection in the water and membrane industries.
Kynar® MG 15 is a semi-crystalline, high viscosity polymer of polyvinylidene difluoride. It is an engineering polymer with an outstanding balance of physical strength and chemical resistance, which makes it an exceptional choice for microfiltration and ultra-filtration membranes for durable water purification. They are especially designed for hollow fiber and flat sheet membranes. These products are soluble in selected solvents and can be used in solution processing applications.
A global chemical company and France’s leading chemicals producer, Arkema is building the future of the chemical industry every day. Deploying a responsible, innovation-based approach, we produce state-of-the-art specialty chemicals that provide customers with practical solutions to such challenges as climate change, access to drinking water, the future of energy, fossil fuel preservation and the need for lighter materials. With operations in more than 40 countries, some 14,000 employees and 10 research centers, Arkema should generate annual revenue of approximately $8.3 billion, and holds leadership positions in all its markets with a portfolio of internationally recognized brands.
