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
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.
