Long chain Rilsan® and Rilsamid® resins offer improved flexibility and high-moisture dimensional stability compared to commodity nylon grades.
Commodity nylon polymers (PA 6 and PA 66) typically make excellent choices for highly abrasion resistant heavy duty filaments. Their propensity to absorb moisture, however, and their inherest stiffness/rigidity sometimes limits their field of use. In such applications, longer chain polyamide resins are generally preferred.
- Fishing lines
- Weed trimmers ("strimmers")
- Car wash brushes
- Industrial brushes and abrasive pads
- Burnishing/buffing pads
- Escalator side-brushes
- Industrial filter fabrics
Improved Flexibility and Lower Moisture Pickup
Rilsamid® D PA 612 grades - improved dimensional stability in high humidity
Rilsan® S PA 610 grades - partially biobased (typically ~60%, ASTM 6866)
Rilsamid® PA12 grades - much higher flexibility and much lower moisture pickup
Rilsan T® PA 1010 grades - 100% biobased (ASTM 6866)
Rilsan® PA11 grades - premium performance; 100% biobased (ASTM 6866)
