Made from castor beans (!!!)
Inferior in many ways to Nylon 6 and Nylon66 BUT
good water related performance - low absorption.
Also maintain propertis well with time.
Hydraulic brake hoses.
RILSAN polyamides 11 and 12 are
high-performance technical polymers
developed by ATOFINA Chemicals, Inc.
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 unique combination of
thermal, physical, chemical and
mechanical properties. This results in
an outstanding Cost Performance Ratio.
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 produced.
RILSAN polyamide resins have
a unique combination of properties.
Their ease of processing has led
designers to select them for industries
as diverse as offshore drilling,
electrical cables, automotive, and
pneumatic and hydraulic hose.
The most demanding applications
require RILSAN polyamide resins.
