Arkema, a leader in specialty materials, announces a breakthrough in new manufacturing processes that integrate up to 40% post-consumer recycled content from end-of-life packaging products into its powder coating resins. This new technology will empower end markets to better respond to increasing societal expectations to preserve resources and reduce climate impact.

Towards a more Circular Economy

Powder coating resins is a solvent-free, low-waste technology, which can now be made more circular by including recycled content. Arkema’s new recycled based powder coating resin innovation uses post-consumer PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) coming from end-of-life packaging as an alternative to traditional fossil based raw materials to create products containing up to 40% recycled PET and reducing PCF (Product Carbon Footprint) by up to 20%.

Ensuring high performance and more sustainable lifestyle

Alongside our Bio-based and Mass Balance offers, increasingly incorporating recycled feedstocks is another step towards ensuring more circular high-performance solutions and a more sustainable lifestyle. The new Arkema’s recycled based powder coating resins further enriches sustainable solutions for our partners, enabling end markets to increase the %recycled content of their finished products.”
