Polyamide engineering thermoplastics (PA6, PA6.6, copolymers, PA6.10, PA6.12, speciality PAs for high temperature applications) for injection moulding, extrusion and blow moulding.
The Radilon® brand comprises a wide range of polyamide engineering thermoplastics used in a great variety of automotive, electrical/electronics, industrial and consumer goods applications.
Traditional and speciality polyamides
Radilon® polyamides include both traditional products and highly innovative specialities, such as materials suitable for continuous service at high temperatures, grades specifically designed for metal replacement, and others with superior resistance to chemical agents.
The Radilon® families of speciality engineering plastics feature products with enhanced heat resistance and high service temperatures (Radilon® A HHR and Radilon XTreme), fibre-reinforced grades for metal replacement (high-fluidity Radilon® A RW and Radilon® S URV) and long-chain polyamides (PA6.10 Radilon® D, partly made with renewable source materials, and PA6.12 Radilon® DT).
Radilon® product characteristics
Radilon® offers one of the largest selections of polyamides on the market, encompassing thermoplastics based on PA6, PA6.6, copolymers, PA6.10 and PA6.12, as well as high-temperature speciality PAs. Radilon® polyamides are available in various grades: unreinforced, reinforced with glass fibre or mineral fillers, impact modified or specially formulated for specific uses.
Radilon® products combine the exceptional properties inherent in polyamides – high stiffness, mechanical resistance, impact strength (particularly in the conditioned state), excellent flowability, wear resistance, good electrical insulation properties and high chemical resistance – with ease of processing when using the most widespread technologies.
The versatility of polyamides provides the potential to expand their properties and adapt them to a broad range of needs by designing and developing new speciality formulations and, in some cases, tailor-made products to meet application specifications.
Radilon® plastics processing
The Radilon® product range includes materials suitable for injection moulding, extrusion and blow moulding for the manufacture of components for the electrical, electronics, industrial, construction and automotive industries.
