15 October 2012

Arkema Coating Resins has announced production and shipment of its first commercial emulsion polymer from Changshu, China. This is the result of the collaboration between Arkema Coating Resins and Arkema subsidiary Coatex to expand the Coatex Changshu Additives plant, located on Arkema’s manufacturing complex in Changshu, today Arkema’s largest chemical platform worldwide.
"We are very pleased that the plant has come online as planned,” said Wilson Foo, Asia Pacific Emulsion Systems General Manager for Arkema Coating Resins. "This is an important step in providing customers local manufacturing and technical support.”
The first Arkema Coating Resins product to ship from the plant is a waterborne emulsion for use in pressure sensitive adhesive applications. Ultimately Arkema Coating Resins will manufacture a full line of products for the Asia Pacific region, including products for use in architectural coatings, industrial coatings, adhesives, building products and other applications.
