The Geo business, which has annual sales of about $30 million, manufactures specialty organic peroxides in Franklin, Va. Arkema says the deal will cement its position as the world's second-largest organic peroxides producer. The peroxides are used as polymerization initiators and as curing agents for unsaturated polyester resins.
