Arkema announces a project to double its UV curable resins production capacity at its Nansha plant in China. Arkema says the expansion will support the fast-growing demand in Asia for electronics, driven by 5G technology, and renewable energies. The new expansion is scheduled to come on stream in the second half of 2023.

The investment is fully aligned with the company’s strategy to develop its coatings segment with high value-added offerings and reinforce its downstream acrylics activities in Asia, according to Arkema. It reportedly will enable Arkema to grow its high-performance and solvent-free portfolio for UV curing, marketed under the flagship brand Sartomer.

In addition to this new production capacity, the plant aims at carbon neutral growth due to an energy efficiency program, green electricity purchasing and the installation of solar panels.
