Arkema and lightweight materials

Today, companies must abide by new increasingly stringent environmental regulations. Carmakers and OEMs have to undertake to reduce the carbon footprint of their vehicles.

Lightweight and designed materials

To fulfil this requirement, Arkema supports the automotive sector, but also the aeronautics industry, by developing high performance thermoplastics as substitutes to glass or metal. The objective: to reduce the weight of structures and therefore help minimize their fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

Arkema focuses its innovation efforts on products that contribute to "Combat climate change and its impacts", one of the 17 UN's sustainable development goals (ODD 13).
