Arkema and Purac sign agreement for joint development of Lactide-based functional additives

Arkema and CSM subsidiary Purac announce their collaboration in functional Lactide-based additives (so-called block copolymers). These additives will enhance the thermo-mechanical and physical properties of many biobased polymers, such as Poly Lactic Acid (PLA), resulting in a wider range of application opportunities. These additives are produced by Arkema's organic catalysis technology, using Purac's L- and D-Lactide monomers.
