At the European Coating Show 2009 Arkema is exhibiting its latest innovations for paints and coatings. The company has expanded its CRP (Controlled Radical Polymerization) technology platform with BlocBuilder DB, a Reversible Addition Fragmentation Transfer (RAFT) polymerization controller. BlocBuilder DB broadens the accessible range of controlled structure polymers and fits within a wide variety of technical/economic conditions. BlocBuilder controllers are especially well suited for coatings, adhesives and surface treatment applications.

In line with its voluntary product stewardship approach, Arkema has developed a new process that eliminates fluorosurfactants from its Kynar 500 PVDF. Arkema is also presenting Kynar ADX, an primer-less PVDF powder coating. In addition, after developing a patented technology, Arkema is commercializing a new range of functionalized reactive polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) polymer powders under the trade name Kynar ADX series.

Lastly, Arkema is presenting a new waterborne fluoropolymer resin, Kynar Aquatec, an easy-dry coating. This innovative product offers the durability and performance of traditional Kynar coatings while drying at ambient temperature.
