Environmentally Friendly Coating

The Rilsan® Fine Powders product range is based on polyamide 11, a 100% biobased polymer.

Origin: Castor Plant

  • Non GMO
  • Robust plany, requires very little pesticides.
  • Grown on poor soil in semi-arid areas (compared to corn, requires very little water)
  • Inedible (several harvests a year, no competition with food crops)
The basic building block of Rilsan® Fine Powders PA11 coatings is derived from the oil of castor beans.

Eco-Conception - Aims to Reduce GWP

High performance biobased polymers with eco-conception can help decrease our environmental footprint. See below a comparison of Global Warming Potential (GWP) at 100 years for different piping material solutions.

Rilsan® PA11 coatings can reduce CO2 emissions by reducing the need for stainless and super duplex steel by protecting carbon steel.

Replacement of a 1 ton stainless steel pipe (DN=250mm, schedule 80S)


Designing with Rilsan® PA11 coated carbon steel instead of stainless steel can decrease the total CO2 emission contribution of the piping system by up to 30%.
