Eco-friendly industrial tube and hose made from caster oil seeds

Tecalemit Flexibles : 07 November, 2012  (New Product)
At the MIDEST trade show (6 to 9 November 2012, Paris), Tecalemit Flexibles, a specialist in flexible hoses for industry, is launching the BBIO Universal Tecalemit tube, which is made from plastics of 100% biological origin and has technical qualities superior to tubes fabricated using petrochemical-industry products. The company will unveil the tube.
Eco-friendly industrial tube and hose made from caster oil seeds

The BBIO Universal Tecalemit tube is made from 100% polyamide Rilsan T. The oil that is produced from grinding castor oil seeds is Rilsan T's only component after both synthesis and polymerisation. This manufacturing process generates much less carbon dioxide and fewer greenhouse gases than in the production of polymers in the petrochemical industry.

In addition to this ecological benefit, the mechanical, physical and thermal advantages of the tubes are also more significant than those fabricated using petrochemicals and boast a higher operating pressure, improved flexibility and greater impact resistance than those made from traditional synthetic polymers.

Lightweight and impermeable, BBIO Universal Tecalemit tubes are resistant to abrasion and negative pressure, generating only very low pressure losses. Furthermore, the tubes are robust and therefore durable, which results in economic advantages for BBIO Universal Tecalemit users.

Tecalemit Flexibles tubes are also highly resistant to chemical agents, hydrocarbons and zinc chloride, even at low temperatures. A certain swelling may occur in aromatic hydrocarbons and alcohol, but this is without damage to the material.

The BBIO Universal Tecalemit tubes are rigorously calibrated and are available in various diameters, as well as in an assortment of colours. The tubes are produced in long lengths and are packed in sachets, boxes or reels of multiple 25-metre lengths.
