RadiciGroup and Röchling Automotive team up to develop an innovative high heat-resistant polyamide

A new product for turbo pipes was presented during the Plastic Materials Congress

At the 21st Plastic Materials Congress, entitled “Chiedilo alla Plastica” [Turn to Plastics], held on 17 November in Varese, Italy, RADICIGROUP PERFORMANCE PLASTICS introduced its latest innovation, a new blow-moulding-grade polyamide capable of standing up to continuous exposure to hot air at temperatures of up to 230°C. The material was developed for, and in collaboration with, RÖCHLING AUTOMOTIVE. Such a high level of heat resistance opens up new opportunities in the metal replacement field, where parts are subjected to severe environmental conditions. The new material belongs to RadiciGroup’s RADILON® range of polyamide engineering thermoplastics, products that have a wide variety of uses in the automotive, electrical/electronics, industrial goods and consumer goods sectors.
