Arkema Launch the Rilsan T Range of Biosourced Polyamides

30 April 2013

Arkema has expanded their offering with the Rilsan T range, a new biosourced polyamide 10.10 processed from castor oil.

Manufactured at its Serquigny facility in France, Arkema claim it benefits from raw material integration, boosted by the recent acquisition of Casda and Hipro as well as a new joint venture with Jayant Agro.

Arkema say that Rilsan T represents the only alternative to other long chain polyamides while benefiting from Arkema’s specialty polyamides differentiation in terms of innovation, quality and service. They also state at the PA10.10 is the only polyamide to rank between PA6.10, PA6.12 on the one hand, and PA10.12, PA12, PA11 on the other, all of which are already part of Arkema’s product range, and that it offers an excellent degree of rigidity (in particular when reinforced with glass fibre), thermal stability, permeability to petrol and gas, and processability, while consisting of up to 100% renewable carbon.

The various PA10.10 grades already available cover most applications in the field of transport (monolayer or multilayer brake lines for trucks and fuel lines for cars), industrial pipes, cables, and injection moulded parts for sports or electronics applications.
