Arkema’s flagship Rilsan® PA11 and Pebax® Rnew® elastomers are Advanced Bio-Circular (ABC) materials. They’re not "just" bio-based materials.  They are truly [A]dvanced polymers that are derived from a sustainably farmed [B]io-based feedstock (castor seed oil) and are fully recyclable/[C]ircular. Rilsan® and Pebax® Rnew® polymer properties include lightweight, flexibility, durability, energy return, and overall toughness. They represent two families of highly differentiated advanced materials with a wide portfolio of options, including grades that are tailored for higher temperatures, transparency, and even functional characteristics like breathable and antistatic properties.
