AKROMID S

AKROMID® S, a polyamide 6.10, consists of up to 70% of a biogenic part and consequently even as “drop-in polymer” fulfils the definition of a biological compound.

Characteristic for this renewable resource based polyamide 6.10 material is the very high media resistance and excellent low-temperature impact strength.

The plant based raw material used is sebasic acid, sythesized from castor oil which is obtained form the seeds of Ricinus communis, the castor oil plant.

AKROMID® S closes the gap between PA6/PA6.6 and PA612. It is characterized by significantly lower moisture absorption compared to PA6 and PA6.6.

AKROMID® S is a bioplastic according to today's standards. The material is not biodegradable but the feature of AKROMID® S is its reduced ecological footprint: the use of harmful CO2 per tonne of polyamide produced from renewable resources is significantly lower compared to one tonne produced from fossil based resources without affecting the product's performance characteristics.
