The new facility will produce polyester powder resins marketed under the REAFREE® trade name. REAFREE® polyester resins are primarily used to develop low-VOC powder coatings for a wide range of industrial and architectural applications. They are highly versatile and can be formulated to provide benefits such as superior scratch resistance, flow and leveling, and rheology control. REAFREE® is a registered trademark of Arkema Inc.
Arkema’s manufacturing site in Navi Mumbai also produces alkyd and acrylic solutions and oil-free polyester resins, as well as reactive polyamide resins.
In addition to the new facility in Navi Mumbai, Arkema produces REAFREE® polyester resins and runs powder coating R&D laboratories at its facilities in Sant Celoni, Spain and North Kansas City, Missouri, USA. From these three plants, Arkema can meet customer needs anywhere in the world.
This US$15 M investment supports the Group’s ongoing commitment to remain a leading global supplier to the coating industry, providing customers with all the benefits of cutting-edge technology, local manufacture, and strong technical support.
