For extreme applications, demand Rilsan® polyamides.
Rilsan® polyamides offer a balance of critical thermal, chemical, and mechanical properties, such as high service temperatures, exceptional chemical resistance, and great impact strength, just to name a few. While Rilsan® may not be the elite performer in any one physical property individually, the combination of Rilsan® polyamides' exceptional properties overcomes the “downsides” that accompany many other engineering resins.
Rilsan® PA Resins Background
Rilsan® polyamides 11 and 12 are high-performance technical polymers developed by Arkema in 1942. Derived from a series of complex chemical operations, Rilsan® PA 11 is one of the few polymers in existence produced from a 'green' raw material - castor beans. Rilsan® PA resins have earned a preferred material status in the most demanding applications due largely to their excellent combination of thermal, physical, chemical and mechanical properties resulting in an outstanding cost performance ratio.
Processing EaseMarkets and Applications
Processing ease is another major benefit of Rilsan® polyamide resins. Supplied in powder or pellet form, Rilsan® PA resins can be processed by injection molding, extrusion, blown film extrusion, extrusion blow molding or rotomolding. Rilsan® PA 11 and 12 are available in rigid, semi-flexible and flexible grades. Reinforced and conductive grades are also available.
Rilsan® PA resin's combination of properties and ease of processing has led designers to select Rilsan® polyamides for industries as diverse as electrical cables, automotive, and pneumatic and hydraulic hose.
For the most demanding applications use Rilsan® polyamide resins.
