The Chemours Company introduced an innovative sustainable technique that produces Viton fluoroelastomers that are Advanced Polymer Architecture (APA) grade without the usage of a fluorinated polymerization aid. Further, Viton APA grade fluoroelastomers can be used in a number of industries, including as oil and gas, sophisticated electronics, transportation, and industrial production.
Arkema SA planned to invest in expanding its fluoropolymer production capabilities in Changshu by over 30%. This additional investment is made possible by the continued high demand for lithium ion batteries as well as the sizable prospects in the semiconductor, building coatings, and water filtration sectors.
