Cooperation and partnership

In many areas in which carbon nanotubes are used, the Arkema group R&D teams largely focus on application and use application methods that are representative of its customers' practices.

In particular, as a leading international chemical company heavily involved in the development of polymer materials, the Arkema group operates its own facilities within its R&D centers and pilot sites for the processing of thermoplastic, thermoset and elastomer resins, with the related know-how.


Finally, the Arkema group is establishing a large number of cooperations and partnership ventures with various players from academia and industry involved in carbon nanotube applications.
