What is Rilsan coating?

Rilsan ® coating Rilsan® is a high performance polyamide polymer that provides great hardness, flexibility and high chemical and permeation resistance. Arkema is a leading supplier of polymers based on recyclable and biological material.

What is nylon coating?

What is Nylon coating? Nylon (polyamide) powder coating is widely used to protect a variety of metal substrates such as steel & aluminum. It is applied either electrostatically or in a fluid bed. It protects a wide variety of applications from corrosion to impact and abrasion.

What is rilsan made of?

Nylon 11 or Polyamide 11 (PA 11) is a polyamide, bioplastic and a member of the nylon family of polymers produced by the polymerization of 11-aminoundecanoic acid. It is produced from castor beans by Arkema under the trade name Rilsan.

What is Halar coating?

Halar® ECTFE coating is a melt-processable fluoropolymer with a 1:1 alternating copolymer structure of ethylene and chlorotrifluoroethylene. Additionally, PVDF (also known as Kynar®) is part of the fluoropolymer family offering similar properties to ECTFE.

What is epoxy polyamide used for?

Polyamide epoxies are normally used in primers for recoatability, flexibility, adhesion, better wetting characteristics, and improved corrosion resistance. They tend to be more resistant to moisture, weather and alkali, but have poor chalk resistance and only moderate acid resistance.

Can nylon be powdercoated?

Now, you can give engineered, filled or non-filled materials, and non-conductive, nylon-reinforced plastic all the decorative protection only powder coating can provide. In fact, any material that can withstand 400°F can be powder coated.

Is coated nylon waterproof?

No. While on it’s own it may not be waterproof, nylon can, however, be a great base material for a lot of water-resistant products. For example, the nylon can be coated with substances like DWR, urethane or rubber, or even be laminated to a waterproof membrane.

What is the difference between nylon 11 and Nylon 12?

Nylon 11 is derived from castor oils and Nylon 12 comes from butadiene. Nylon 12 has a slightly lower melting point and density and Nylon 12 performs better at high temperatures and has superior UV resistance. Their advantages include low moisture absorption (.

What is grilamid?

Grilamid is basically a transparent polyamide that is processed using thermoplastic methods. Grilamid® is a high-performance polyamide developed and manufactured in Switzerland, and is a revolutionary new transparent plastic with exceptional properties.
