Conductive Grade of Polyamide 11 from Atofina, Specifically Designed for Automotive Fuel Systems

Atofina have just released Rilsan® M-BESN Black P 212 CTL, a conductive polyamide based on polyamide 11, that was developed specifically for the automotive fuel systems.

Key properties of Rilsan® M-BESN Black P 212 CTL include:

         Surface resistivity below 106Ω

         Competitive pricing

         Ease of processing

         Superior resistance to hydrocarbons and alcohols, as is required for a fuel system

         Excellent mechanical strength, eliminating the need for reinforcement

         Outstanding low temperature properties (-40°C)

This grade of polyamide 11 also offers a higher melting point compared to conductive grades of polyamide 12. This gives it better resistance to bursting, as well as improved fitting retention at higher temperatures. At the same time it also offers excellent flexibility, making it still easy to install.

Rilsan® M-BESN Black P 212 CTL is suitable for fuel storage and delivery systems and can be used in monolayer and two-layer structures. It is usually produced by extrusion as smooth or corrugated tubes.
