PARIS — French chemical company Arkema announced Tuesday plans to acquire the industrial applications specialty business of SEPPIC, a unit of French industrial gas company Air Liquide SA, according to a press release.

The project to acquire SEPPIC’s specialty alcoxylate industrial business entails in particular the acquisition of an industrial site located in Antwerp, Belgium.

Alcoxylates represent a key component in the manufacture of certain rheological additives used in paints and ultra high performance concrete additives for high-tech civil works engineering structures such as high-rise buildings and bridges.

This acquisition would boost the major development of these products currently manufactured and marketed by the Arkema subsidiary Coatex.
