Along with Rilsan® T Grey 9102 MAC and Rilsan® ES 9132 MAC, Arkema now offers two grey-colored (RAL 7021) grades designed for fluidized bed dipping and electrostatic spraying.

long-term resistance to extreme maritime and industrial environments*,
anti-graffiti properties,
fire resistance,
electrical insulation,
chemical resistance.

Outstanding mechanical properties are also inherited, which include impact resistance, flexibility, abrasion resistance, a unique grip, and warm-to-the-touch feel.

Combining beauty and function, Rilsan® polyamide 11 coatings offer a solution for the most demanding applications. The Rilsan® brand has become the reference for industries looking for the ultimate solution in metal protection, such as automotive, oil and gas, and fluid transfer.
