Joint Venture between Arkema and Barrday, Inc.

September 24 2018

Barrday Inc., a major player in the composite market, and Arkema have created a joint venture to manufacture and market carbon fiber and specialty polymer tapes for the growing oil and gas industrial market.

The new venture, to be named Barrflex TU, will supply the most efficient thermoplastic composite solutions to the various players of the oil and gas industrial markets.

The tapes will deliver substantial improvements in terms of weight reduction (replacement of metal) and corrosion resistance for the flexible pipes used in the deep offshore as well as onshore operations of tomorrow.

The complementary offerings of Barrday (proven experience in thermoplastic composite manufacture) and of Arkema’s range of specialty polymers and resins (PVDF, Polyamides 11 and 12, PEKK, etc.) will enable Barrflex TU to fully capitalize on the growth of the oil and gas market by marketing a new comprehensive and integrated range of solutions.

Barrflex TU will be focused on satisfying customer composite tape requirements using any resin, fiber and the development of product and process technology.
