Arkema Introduces Renewable Polymer for High Performance

Arkema has introduced a new grade of Rilsan PA11, its 100 percent bio-sourced technical polymer, designed for the high-performance fiber market. The new grade is intended to produce bio-based fibers that combine a unique set of performances: light weight, soft touch and resistance to bacteria, wear and abrasion.

Arkema, a global chemical company based in France, reports that in addition to its renewable source, Rilsan PA11 production is characterized by lower fossil energy requirements and lower CO2 emissions in comparison to other polymers that are based on fossil resources.

Arkema is also offering its other renewable technical polymers: Platamid Rnew, what the company says is the first 100 percent biobased hotmelt adhesive, and Pebax Rnew, the first engineering thermoplastic elastomer made from renewable resources, according to the company. These specific emulsions are used in various textile applications.

The manufacture of these various products is part of Arkema's strategy to increase its use of renewable raw materials.
