Arkema Inc., Philadelphia, will partner an expansion of a new online CVD, or chemical vapor deposition, project for Kibing’s glass floatline located at an ocean port in Dongshan Island, Fujian Province of China, according to an Arkema release Nov. 19. This floatline will use the next generation, online pyrolytic CVD process, jointly developed by Arkema and its engineering partner Stewart Engineers, Flat Rock, Mich.

This new, online CVD coating system can deposit a full range of Arkema’s hard coated Certincoat coatings including low-E, Sunlite and Sun E products. “Kibing Glass Co. will be in a position to help fulfill the growing demand of the Chinese market, especially for the southern part of China,” said David Dai, global CVD manager, Arkema, in the release.
