Rilsan® HT

Arkema

Description :
Rilsan® HT is the first flexible, high-temperature thermoplastic to replace metal in tubing for high-temperature automotive and other demanding industrial applications. The revolutionary flexibility of Rilsan® HT offers a step-change in polyphthalamide (PPA)-based materials and extends metal substitution to yet unimagined possibilities.

Compared with metal assemblies, tubing made from Rilsan® HT lowers the overall system cost and ensures longer service life of engine components.
Rilsan® HT is a unique durable high-temperature thermoplastic largely derived from renewable non-food-crop vegetable feedstock, naturally responding to the increasing environmental commitment of the automotive industry.
