A durable alternative to stainless steel
Rilsan® is a thermoplastic synthetic coating powder that is based on castor oil, which is derived from plants. A monomer is obtained from this oil that is processed to produce nylon-11, or Rilsan®. Coating metals with Rilsan® is a cheap and durable alternative to stainless steel. Additionally this coating complies with the Kiwa, DVGW/KTW and WICS Assessment Guidelines, as well as other European directives.
Colours and layer thicknesses
We generally apply Rilsan® by fluidized bed coating, but it is also possible to use electrostatic powder coating or rotomoulding. Our standard coating for pipeline systems is colored RAL 7001 with a layer thickness of approximately 400 μm. Externally, the Rilsan® layer can be finished in any desired RAL colour. Small components can be finished with Rilsan® in white, black and blue when desired.
Only a single type is available for coating printing press rollers. This variant is a special development from our manufacturer that has good mechanical and chemical properties.
