(Arkema) -- A world leader in specialty polyamides, 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.
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. 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.
Rilsamid, 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.
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).
A global chemical company and France's leading chemicals producer, Arkema produces state-of-the-art specialty chemicals that provide customers with practical solutions to such challenges as climate change, access to drinking water, the future of energy, fossil fuel preservation and the need for lighter materials. With operations in more than 40 countries, 15,700 employees and 9 research centers, Arkema generates annual revenue of EUR5.9 billion, and holds leadership positions in all its markets with a portfolio of internationally recognized brands.
