RadiciGroup Performance Plastics, has introduced the Radilon® product range, as well as techno-polymers that offer improved resistance to high temperatures (Radilon® A HHR and Radilon® XTreme) and reinforced materials for metal replacement (Radilon® A RW and Radilon® S URV high fluidity), includes long-chain polyamides: Radilon® D based on PA 6.10 from partially renewable sources, Radilon® DT based on PA 6.12 and RADILON CD that are copolymers PA 6.10/6.6 also being partially bio-based. These are polyamides with specific chemical-physical characteristics, whose properties can be adapted to suit the needs of the end customer.
Main Applications include:
PA 6.10 is usually used for the production of monofilaments for industrial applications, for example, in Paper Machine Clothing (PMC), thanks to its unique chemical resistance and (bend recovery characteristic which increase its durability; alternatively, it can be used for manufacturing pipes suitable for transporting petrol in fuel lines, mainly for its inherent burst strength.
Enrico Simonato, RadiciGroup Performance Plastics, Extrusion Market Manager, said:
“By introducing this new range we aim at implementing a diversification process in the market that is possible thanks to the vertical integration of our Group. The Novara chemical plant is our “internal” trusted partner for developing products in line with the different expectations of our customers
