Bio-based Polymer

November 30, -0001

Arkema has launched a new grade of Rilsan PA11—its 100% bio-sourced technical polymer—designed for the fiber market. This new Rilsan PA11 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 also presented its other renewable technical polymers: Platamid Rnew—the first 100% biobased hotmelt adhesive—and Pebax Rnew, the first engineering thermoplastic elastomer made from renewable resources, these specific emulsions are being used in various woven and nonwoven textile applications.
