Royal DSM, a Dutch life sciences and material sciences firm, has used the castor oil for its aluminium windows manufacturing.
Royal DSM says its new EcoPaxx polyamide 410, which has a bio-based content of 70%, can help reduce the environmental footprint of aluminium window profiles. The material, used in insulating profiles, is made from a material derived from the castor plant
According to DSM, EcoPaxx polyamide 410 also offers mechanical advantages over other engineering plastics, including a high melting point of 250°C, good hydrolysis and chemical resistance, and lower moisture absorption than PA66.
