Arkema launches new versions of its Rilsan®, Rilsamid® and Orgalloy® technical polymers dedicated websites
Arkema 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®, a polyamide 11 of 100% vegetable origin manufactured exclusively by Arkema in the world. The website describes its remarkable physical, mechanical and chemical properties, illustrated with extensive comparative test results. The preferred partner to manufacturers for over 60 years in diverse markets ranging from offshore and automotive to electronics and sports, Rilsan® offers unrivalled value thanks to its unique combination of properties and environmental advantages. This 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 oil-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 or 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 part (high productivity and easy processing).
