Grilamid 2S polyamide 610 (PA610) is created through poly-condensation of hexamethylene diamine and sebacic acid.
Hexamethylene diamine is obtained from crude oil, while sebacic acid is obtained following a multiple-step chemical process from the renewable bio-raw material castor oil. This means the polyamide 610 polymer is made to 62 per cent of renewable raw materials. Bio-based Grilamid 2S products are sold by EMS-GRIVORY under the general term GreenLine.
Special features of Grilamid 2S PA610 are:
- Use of 62% renewable basic raw materials (in relation to the polymer)
- Low water absorption and good dimensional stability compared to PA6 or PA66
- Good resistance to chemicals and weathering
- High melting point of 215°C
- Problem-free processing
Due to its high melting point, Grilamid 2S PA610 is especially well suited for pipes, connectors and other under-the-hood automotive applications which are exposed to high temperatures. Further preferred applications are industrial pipes for pneumatic and hydraulic systems as well as sports and leisure.
