Polyamide engineering polymers (PA6, PA6.6, copolymers, PA6.10, PA6.12, PPA and other specialty PAs for high temperature applications) for injection moulding, extrusion and blow moulding.
Polyamides: conventional formulations and specialties
Among the specialty product lines under the Radilon® brand name are engineering polymers with enhanced resistance to high temperatures (Radilon® A HHR and Torzen® Marathon), reinforced materials for metal replacement (Radilon® A RW, Radilon® S URV featuring high fluidity and Radistrong® A with high mechanical characteristics and better property retention in moist conditions), and long-chain polyamides (Radilon® D produced from PA6.10, a biopolymer partially obtained from renewable source materials, and Radilon® DT based on PA6.12).
The Radilon® Aestus brand name was introduced to identify the products with the highest level of mechanical properties produced from a polymer in the polyphthalamide family.
Radilon® product characteristicsRadilon® offers one of the widest portfolios of polyamides available on the market, encompassing compounds based on PA6, PA6.6, copolymer, PA6.10, and PA6.12, as well as PPA and specialty PAs for high temperature applications. Radilon® polyamides are available in several versions: non-reinforced, glass fibre- or mineral-reinforced, impact modified, and special formulations for specific applications.
Radilon® products feature the exceptional properties that are typical of polyamides, such as high stiffness, mechanical resistance and impact resistance, particularly in a conditioned state, on top of excellent wear resistance and flowability, good electrical insulation and high chemical resistance, combined with excellent workability using the most common process technologies available.
Moreover, polyamides are versatile materials in that their properties can be expanded and adapted to a very broad range of needs by designing and developing new specialty formulations and, in some cases, tailor-made products to meet special application specifications.
Radilon® polymer processingThe Radilon® product range includes materials suitable for injection moulding, extrusion and blow moulding of components for the electrical, electronics, industrial, construction and automotive industries.
