Arkema Introduces New Rilsan® Fine Powders  Grade For Outdoor Furniture

KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa. — January 14, 2016 — The Rilsan® fine powders product line has expanded its range of bio-based polyamide coating powders for the outdoor furniture market.  Along with Rilsan® T Grey 9102 MAC and Rilsan® ES Grey 9132 MAC, Arkema now offers two grey-colored (RAL 7021) grades designed for fluidized bed dipping and electrostatic spraying.

These two grades were formulated to offer outstanding UV-resistance, while keeping core properties brought by Rilsan® fine powders PA11 coatings.  These properties include long-term resistance to extreme maritime and industrial environments (*up to 15 years in C5-I, C5-M environments as defined in ISO 12944:1998 Part 2), anti-graffiti properties, fire resistance, electrical insulation, and chemical resistance.  Outstanding mechanical properties are also inherited, which include impact resistance, flexibility, abrasion resistance, a unique grip, and warm-to-the-touch feel.

As a thermoplastic powder for coatings, Rilsan® fine powders offer an exceptional choice in processing methods, which allows coating complex parts with various geometries.

Combining beauty and function, Rilsan® polyamide 11 coatings offer a solution for the most demanding applications. The Rilsan® brand has become the reference for industries looking for the ultimate solution in metal protection, such as automotive, oil and gas, and fluid transfer.

Rilsan® fine powders are derived from castor oil, a 100% vegetable, natural, non-toxic, and renewable resource.  Here, Arkema offers a great way to combine eco-responsibility with outstanding performance.
