SK Functional Polymer is a newly established company headquartered in Paris, France, following the acquisition of Arkema’s Functional Polyolefins business by SK Global Chemical in June 2020. SK Functional Polymer has more than 50 years of experience in the development and supply of specialty polyolefins products from manufacturing facilities in Europe and in the USA.
SKFP resins contribute to the recycling of PCR and PIR wastes thanks to their outstanding capability to compatibilize various types of polymers. They are very efficient to compatibilize PET/PE, PE/PA, PA/EVOH, PP/EVOH blends and can boost the properties of recycled ABS, PC, PET.
Lotader® and Orevac® polyolefins can be used to design monomaterial packaging, facilitating their recycling into useful plastic items. SKFP products are used bring the following solutions for recycling applications:
Innovative solutions for plastic compounds: impact modifiers, coupling agents, recycling boosters, compatibilizers.
Polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) thermoplastic resins are used in a large number of applications including electrical and electronic devices, connectors and capacitor casings, automotive electronics, OA equipment, building materials, and industrial machinery parts.
Polyamide (PA) thermoplastic resins are one of the major engineering and high-performance plastics used today thanks to their excellent balance of processability and mechanical properties. SK Functional Polymer has developed very effective impact modifiers for PA and glass-reinforced PA compounds.
SK Functional Polymer has produced specialty polyolefins for more than 50 years. Thanks to their unique combination of functionalities (epoxide, maleic anhydride, acrylate, vinyl acetate) SKFP resins have ignited innovation from the most complex food packaging composites to the newest advances in plastic circular economy.
