Arkema: New nanomaterial masterbatches and copolymers

Arkema (Colombes / France; www.arkema.com) has added new masterbatches to its “Graphistrength” line of carbon nanotube products and developed a new range of “Nanostrength” acrylic block copolymers. The Graphistrength masterbatches include a universal grade for various thermoplastics, new grades for elastomers and solid concentrates for liquid epoxy and aqueous solutions.

Arkema said the Nanostrength block copolymers self-assemble or ‘nanostructure’ at the molecular level, bringing superior mechanical strength without losing any of the important properties of the matrix material.
