Bio-based Rilsan® PA11 from a renewable source 

Produced from a renewable source (castor oil), Rilsan® PA11 is used in a large number of applications thanks to its outstanding properties, including excellent chemical resistance, easy processing, high and low-temperature performance (-40°C / +130°C), high dimensional stability, and low density. Many industries around the world (e.g. automotive, textile, oil & gas, wire & cables, electronics) have used Rilsan® PA11 for many decades for its long-term durability.
Rilsan® PA11 is easy to process using most processing technologies (extrusion, extrusion-blow molding, injection molding, rotomolding, and 3D printing).

Castor community and sustainable castor projects in India 

Arkema is a founding member of Pragati, the sustainable castor initiative. We engage with castor farming communities in India to enhance castor productivity by training farmers to build capacity, improve yields, and reduce environmental impacts.

Every year Arkema launches a scholarship program to empower the next generation within the community. Several hundred high school students from the castor-farming region participate in 4 separate art, model-making, and essay-writing competitions yearly.
