Due to strong demand for lithium-ion batteries and other markets, Arkema’s previously announced 35 percent fluoropolymer capacity increase at its Changshu site in China is now revised upwards to a capacity increase of 50 percent, with no change in the expected start-up date (end-2022).

With this PVDF capacity increase, Arkema accelerates its development in China in order to meet the strong demand from its customers in the lithium-ion battery business and support the significant growth in the water filtration, specialty coatings and semiconductor sectors.


Arkema, a global leader in PVDF production, also recently announced a 50 percent PVDF capacity increase at its Pierre-Bénite site in France, which is scheduled to come on stream in the first quarter of 2023.
