COLOMBES, FRANCE: Arkema, the world leader in specialty polyamides, and Addiplast, a French company specializing in the manufacture of specialty compounds, have signed an agreement for supply of Arkema’s  polyamides 10, 11 and 12 to Addiplast which will process them into technical compounds and materials. These high added value solutions will target high performance applications, in particular in the automotive and electronics sectors.

Through this strengthened partnership, Addiplast will develop from biosourced polyamides and other specialty long chain polyamides supplied by Arkema, a new range of high-end materials and compounds for injection molding. These compounds are designed for high added value applications requiring specific performances.

The partnership will enable Addiplast to expand its offering in biosourced polymers and/or polymers reinforced with natural fibres. This range of new compounds offered by Addiplast will help fulfil the specific requirements of niche applications (coloured, flame retardant, ESD, electrically conductive, etc, materials), and for Arkema, it will represent an opportunity to expand its polyamides activities in new markets.
