Rilsamid® Polyamide 12


Continuously developed by Arkema for more than fifty years, Rilsamid® is a reference in the world of performance polyamide 12 (nylon 12). Produced from a renewable source (castor oil), Rilsamid® is used in a large number of applications thanks to its outstanding properties:

  • Excellent resistance to chemicals (particularly hydrocarbons)
  • Wide range of working temperatures [-40°-130°C (40-266°F)]
  • High dimensional stability and low density

Rilsamid® polymers are easy to process, using most processing technologies, including extrusion, extrusion blow molding, injection molding and rotational molding. Rilsamid® MED polymers can be modified to deliver customized performance such as wide range of color, heat and light stabilization, radiopaque fillers, plasticizers, lubricants, impact modifiers, reinforcing fibers, nano particles, etc.
