Description

PA11, MR, 18-020, GB30

Rilsan® BUM 30 O resin is a glass bead reinforced polyamide 11 produced from a renewable source. The incorporation of glass beads yields a virtually isotropic reinforced product. This natural grade dedicated to injection is specially designed for drinking water application: WRAS (UK). The percentage of renewable carbon according to ASTM D6866 (calculated) is 97%.
