Arkema's Renewably-sourced, Metal & Rubber Replacing Rilsan® HT PPA Wins Pierre Potier's Top Prize

Published on 2013-09-16. Author : SpecialChem

The result of over 5 years of research, Rilsan® HT is the first thermoplastic from the polyphthalamide (PPA) family available in the market to combine high temperature resistance with flexibility. These characteristics make it aptly suited to replace metal and rubber in under-the-hood tubing applications. Six times lighter than steel and three times lighter than aluminum, it therefore helps reduce the weight of vehicles, their fuel consumption and their CO2 emissions.
