Arkema to buy Total's photocure and coatings resins units

With sales of about EUR 850 million and almost 1,750 employees, these activities will expand Arkema's position in the global coatings resins market and will further increase the downstream integration of its acrylics chain. With a wider product range, including emulsions, photocure resins, rheology additives, alkyd resins, powder resins, fluorinated polymers and copolymers, Arkema will become a leading material suppliers to the global coatings market. The deal is expected to close in the first half of 2011. With operations in more than 40 countries and 14,000 employees, Arkema generates annual revenue of EUR 5.5 billion.
