KYNAR® FLUOROPOLYMERS

KYNAR® PVDF and flexible copolymers are known for their balance between ease of processing and tremendous strength and durability.

Extreme properties

  • Outstanding resistance to sunlight/UV exposure
  • Tremendous chemical resistance to a wide range of aggressive chemicals
  • Radiation resistance
  • Excellent burn characteristics / flame and smoke properties
  • Easy processing on industry-standard equipment and easy post-processing such as welding and fabrication
  • Extremely high purity for the most demanding applications
  • Extremely high electrochemical stability
  • Excellent abrasion resistance
  • High temperature rating: RTI 150º C

RILSAN® POLYAMIDES

RILSAN® high performance polyamides deliver toughness, flexibility, chemical resistance, and permeation resistance. RILSAN® grades are bio-based.

RILSAN® CLEAR TRANSPARENT POLYAMIDES

RILSAN® CLEAR are lightweight, flexible, chemically resistant polyamides that are easy to process.

  • Ultra light weight
  • High transparency
  • Chemical and mechanical resistance

PEBAX® THERMOPLASTIC ELASTOMERS

PEBAX® TPE consist of polyamide and polyether backbone blocks. These specialty elastomers offer very low material density, a wide range of shore hardness values, extremely efficient energy return (over a wide temperature range) and are optionally biobased.

RILSAMID® POLYAMIDE 12 RANGE

The RILSAMID® range of polymers are derived mainly from Butadiene / fossil fuels. They are available in a wide range of natural, pigmented, filled, plasticized, or reinforced compounds.

Properties

  • Easy to process in standard equipment (extrusion, injection molding etc.)
  • Very lightweight - helps improve fuel economy in cars, trucks, planes; Lighter weight also translates into lower usage rates and cost savings on a volumetric basis
  • Excellent noise dampening, elimination of vibrations
  • Very good chemical resistance
  • Low water absorption - much better dimensional stability than lower polyamides (PA 6 or PA66 for example)
  • Outstanding impact properties and flexibility - especially at lower temperatures
  • Outstanding abrasion resistance
  • Tremendous resistance to stress cracking

ORGALLOY® HIGH PERFORMANCE POLYAMIDE ALLOYS

ORGALLOY® polyamide alloys combine the important physical and chemical properties of short-chain polyamides with the economic and process advantages of polyolefins. They are designed to offer improved dimensional stability, lower density and better mechanical properties than PA 6 and PA 6.6 resins.

Benefits

  • Low density
  • Dimensional stability
  • Constant mechanical properties after moisture recovery
  • Chemical resistance
  • Barrier properties
  • Thermal resistance
  • Compatibility with other polymers
  • Easy processing & high productivity
