Arkema (Colombes, France) has brought on line www.rilsan.com, www.rilsamid.com and www.orgalloy.com, three comprehensive information platforms on its long-chain polyamide product offering. Reflecting Arkema's strong brand recognition and application know-how in its end-markets, all three sites present the specific technical features and the various grades available in each of the three product lines.
www.rilsan.com is entirely devoted to Rilsan polyamide 11 of 100% vegetable origin. The website describes its physical, mechanical and chemical properties, illustrated with extensive comparative test results. The ultra high performance material is suited to applications in extreme pressure, temperature and chemical environment conditions.
www.rilsamid.com features all the technical data and characteristics of polyamide 12, recently renamed Rilsamid. This petroleum-based high performance polymer is used in some of Rilsan's markets for applications requiring excellent physical, mechanical and chemical properties, albeit slightly below the level of Rilsan's properties.
Both these sites also set out Arkema's service offer in support of its sustainable development policy and that of its customers: Rcycle, a program entailing the collection of certain wastes and certain end-of-life applications manufactured from Rilsan or Rilsamid, for subsequent recycling and reuse. Hence, Arkema develops new ranges of recycled polymers jointly with its customers.
Finally, www.orgalloy.com presents the Orgalloy range of polyolefin-based polyamides. The website reviews the properties and applications of Orgalloy. This alloy takes the best of polyamide's properties (sturdiness, rigidity, temperature stability and chemical resistance), while affording decisive benefits derived from its polyolefin component (high productivity and easy processing).-[email protected]
