Arkema launches polyamide processed from castor oil

The new range of biosourced polyamides, Rilsan S, is manufactured in China by Arkema, which has a stake in Ihsedu Agrochem, a subsidiary of Jayant Agro that specialises in castor oil production

BS B2B Bureau  |  Shanghai, China 

Arkema, one of the leading global players in specialty polyamides, has expanded its offering with Rilsan S, a new biosourced polyamide 6.10 range, partially processed from castor oil. Manufactured at its Zhangjiagang facility in China, it closes the gap between long-chain polyamides and PA6/PA6.6.

Rilsan S offers an alternative to long-chain polyamides and PA6/PA6.6 while benefiting from Arkema’s specialty polyamides differentiation in terms of innovation, quality, service and 70 years’ experience in polyamides, claims the company.

Arkema is the only chemicals manufacturer to offer expertise spanning over 70 years in the chemistry of castor oil, the raw material for its Rilsan polyamide 11. This position was bolstered in 2012 by the acquisition of Chinese companies Casda, the world leader in sebacic acid derived from castor oil, and Hipro Polymers, which produces polyamides also from castor oil (Hiprolon PA6.10, PA10.10, PA10.12), as well as the recent purchase of a stake in Ihsedu Agrochem, a subsidiary of Jayant Agro in India which specialises in the production of castor oil.

Building on its unique integration and an already unsurpassed offering in high performance polyamides, Arkema has now enhanced its product range with Rilsan S partially processed from castor oil.

The various Rilsan S grades already available cover most applications in the field of transport (in particular for fluid transfer quick connectors), monofilaments and injection moulded parts for automotive, sports or electronics applications.
