Presentation Abstract

More Sustainable Acrylic Sealants for Building & Construction

In light of the industry responsibility to act against global warming, building and construction players are seeking more resistant and less energy-intensive materials, enabling them to build more durable energy-efficient buildings.

Arkema teams are developing higher performance acrylic based solutions with lower carbon footprint for more sustainable construction.

In this presentation we will highlight our participation in the acrylic sealant value chain to achieve our common sustainability goals with some examples exhibiting solutions to increase the durability of waterborne sealants and to lower the carbon footprint via bio-based and bio-attributed approach through mass balance.
