Orgasol specialty polyamides powders are known for their tightly controlled particle size distribution and their outstanding toughness.

They are often specified as ultra-high performing formulation additives, notably for coatings and advanced composite materials, as well as in the 3D printing.

This project will support the steady customer growth in these industrial applications.

This latest expansion announcement for Arkema’s specialty polyamides demonstrates its commitment to its global customer base.

"Having recently announced very substantial investments in Asia for our Rilsan polyamide 11 and Rilsamid polyamide 12 product lines, we now shift our focus to the Orgasol specialty powders portfolio. We continue to invest to support the growth of our customers, especially in cutting edge, next generation applications."
