AKRO-PLASTIC & ZIEHL-ABEGG to Develop Renewably-sourced AKROMID® S PA 6.10 Compound

Published on 2014-08-27. Author : SpecialChem

Specializing in innovative, application-orientated plastic compounds for over 25 years, AKRO-PLASTIC GmbH has partnered ZIEHL-ABEGG SE to develop a polyamide 6.10-based AKROMID® S compound for the "bionic bio-fan". AKROMID® S, the PA 6.10 compound from AKRO-PLASTIC, satisfies the common definition of a bioplastic, with a biogenic C-portion of up to 70%. Castor oil from the seeds of the castor oil plant (Ricinuns communis) forms the basis of sebacic acid, which in turn serves as the basis for the polymer's renewable raw material portion.
