Arkema to enhance its functional polyolefin range

COLOMBES, FRANCE: Arkema announced that it is to discontinue its Evatane 33-15 (high content ethylene - vinyl acetate copolymers) and Lotryl 14MG02 (ethylene – acrylate copolymers) grades, to optimize its functional polyolefin range. This withdrawal is part of a rationalization programme to be completed in 2012 designed to shorten production wheel and reduce inventories of finished products, while delivering even better customer service. In the past three years, Arkema has sought to methodically optimize its Evatane, Lotryl and Orevac T ranges, and to channel its sales towards higher added value grades.
