Arkema appoints Velox as European distributor for its Multiwall Carbon Nanotubes

Europe | Posted on July 10th, 2009

In 2006, Arkema inaugurated Europe's first plant capable of producing 20 tons per year of multiwall carbon nanotubes, and has built a broad product portfolio for the polymer industry to include the elastomeric, thermoplastic, thermosetting, coating and adhesive sectors.

Thanks to its intrinsic outstanding mechanical and conductivity properties, Graphistrength® can be used in numerous applications such as high strength composite materials, electronic components, conductive coatings, electrode material for batteries and fuel cells, etc.

Velox will offer the full Graphistrength® product range across Europe (except in the UK where Hubron Specialty Limited is the appointed distributor). The range currently includes the pure Graphistrength® products, and the extended range of masterbatches designed to ease incorporation and maximize Graphistrength® added value into a whole range of elastomers, thermoplastics, resins and waterborne applications.

Velox already works closely with other Arkema businesses and distributes OXPEKK® high performance polyketone from Oxford Performance Materials (OPM), an Arkema Company.

Full details on the Graphistrength® range can be viewed on the dedicated Arkema website www.graphistrength.com
