Arkema (King of Prussia, Pa., U.S.) announces that it will acquire Lambson (West Yorkshire, U.K.), a company specializing in photoinitiators for curing, used in markets such as composites, 3D printing and high-performance coatings. Arkema says Lambson’s product solutions will complement its offering of Sartomer (Exton, Pa., U.S.) photocure resins, and contribute to faster development for the company in this market.

Lambson develops and markets a range of photoinitiators used to initiate polymerization reactions during the UV-curing process, and has reported sales of about  €45 million. Arkema says this market is estimated to grow around 5% per year. 

Closing of the deal is expected in fourth quarter 2019, subject to approval by antitrust authorities in the relevant countries.
