Arkema develops Rilsan Techline for garment industry

Nov '08
Arkema developed the minicoat process in the 70's and designed a special range of Rilsan Minicoat powders for this highly efficient powder coating process.

Since the 80's, Rilsan Minicoat White 1452 MAC nylon powder, also simply known as 1452, has been the industrial standard for nylon coating powders used in the minicoat process, especially for the coating of brassiere and undergarment adjusters..

Over the years, Arkema has invested in research, development, manufacturing and supply chain management in order to fulfill the needs of its customers. Rilsan Techline brings various benefits throughout the manufacturing process of nylon-coated adjusters, thus enabling a significant cost reduction:

Le Rilsan Techline offre plusieurs avantages dans le procédé de revêtement des ajusteurs, permettant ainsi une importante réduction des coûts de production :

Excellent powder pick-up during the coating process, enabling higher belt speed and lower preheat oven temperature. Industrial trials have shown that belt speed could be increased by over 10%. These benefits can be translated into greater energy efficiency and productivity, hence a reduction in variable and fixed costs.

Excellent leveling during the post-fusion process, enabling higher belt speed, lower power input, and low reject rate due to pinholes. Industrial trials have demonstrated that it was possible to increase both upper and lower belt speed by over 20%, and to reduce pinholes by over 90%. This new product again ensures higher energy efficiency and productivity, and a reduction in the cost of quality control and of handling complaints, with higher customer satisfaction.

Exceptional dyeing consistency despite varying post-fuse conditions and weather conditions, hence a low reject rate due to uneven, non-homogeneous color. Industrial trials have demonstrated that it was possible to have NO rejects due to defects in dyeing. Rilsan Techline is a robust coating that will save quality control time and will offer consistent quality at a high productivity rate.

Rilsan Techline chemistry has been designed to meet customer demands in adjuster coating. In addition to its unique combination of performances, Rilsanâ Techline is a durable material, made of renewable raw materials, therefore providing a reduction in environmental impact and a sustainable solution for your market.

With global brands like Rilsan, Pebax, Platamid and Rilsan Fine Powders, unique products like Rilsan biobased PA11, and leading capacities in Rilsan PA11 and 12, Arkema's Technical Polymers business unit provides its customers with global coverage and superior regional service from production facilities and research sites in Europe, Asia, and the USA.
