In collaboration with Arkema, Xenia has successfully developed a range of PVDF composite compounds for injection and extrusion processes. New compounds are directed toward a wide range of specialty applications in the chemical processing industry requiring extreme durability and longevity.
  • The new compounds feature truly exceptional mechanical properties, with elastic modulus of up to 15,000 MPa and outstanding resistance to a very wide range of aggressive chemicals. 
  • Parts and pieces made from these compounds may be further processed by traditional welding and fabrication methods already commonly employed with standard Kynar® PVDF grades.

Xenia Partners with Arkema

Fabio Azzolin, president of Xenia, said:
“We are very proud of this partnership, which leverages the extensive R&D resources of both companies. This collaboration further extends the partnership we have recently developed with Arkema in adjacent high performance polymers like long chain polyamides and Pebax® elastomers.”

Dr. Anthony Bonnet, Arkema’s global research director for technical polymers, added:
“Arkema is a proven leader in fluoropolymer innovation. Our ability to closely collaborate with an expert in the field of specialty fiber-reinforced composites, adds an exciting new dimension in new high performance applications.”
