As the world’s sole chemicals manufacturer to offer the entire long chain polyamides range, polyamide 12 as well as biosourced polyamides PA11and PA10 derived from castor oil, Arkema is the leading player in the production of specialty polyamides.
Addiplast has emerged both in France and in Europe as one of the leaders in the design of technical compounds and polymers derived from polyamides, polyolefins and polycarbonates. With its expertise in the design of these materials and related processes, Addiplast became a partner of Arkema in the early 2000s.
Through this strengthened partnership, Addiplast will develop from biosourced polyamides (Rilsan® PA 11 and Hiprolon® PA 6-10, PA 10-10, PA 10-12) and other specialty long chain polyamides (Rilsamid® PA12, Hiprolon® PA 6-12) supplied by Arkema, a new range of high-end materials and compounds for injection molding. These compounds are designed for high added value applications requiring specific performances.
Marketed under the trade names Addinyl® (polyamides of fossil origin) and Addibio® Renew (biosourced polymers), these solutions fulfil demanding specification requirements in terms of mechanical strength and/or chemical resistance. They will serve on the European market diversified segments, including automotive, electronics, sports and leisure, new energies and new technologies.
