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.

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

The plant based raw material used is sebasic acid, sythesised 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 characterised 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.
