Photocuring is a growing business for Arkema, and following the acquisition of Lambson – a global player specializing in the development and supply of photoinitiators – Arkema has opened a Center of Excellence in Wetherby, UK.

Integrated into the photocurable specialties business of Sartomer, this center is a key component of the growth and development strategy for photocuring, a solvent-free sustainable technology of the future.

Equipped with first-rate equipment and led by an experienced team with expertise in photoinitiator synthesis and formulation, this center will provide a collaborative space for developing solutions that are tailored to the challenges of customers and partners, particularly in the electronics, 3D printing, inks, adhesives and high-performance coatings markets.

Laurent Peyronneau, CEO of Sartomer and VP of Arkema’s Coating Solutions, said that the  center supports both experienced formulators and those new to energy curing technology who are seeking state-of-the-art UV resin and photoinitiator systems expertise.

“It also brings together technologies and know-how to address energy curing challenges and develop innovative solutions to unlock new opportunities,” Peyronneau added.
