Insulating profiles made of bio-based polyamides

Technoform Bautec and bio-based polyamides
Sustainable use of resources and environmentally friendly products is rapidly becoming more and more important. The use of renewable raw materials significantly improves the carbon footprint of the raw material itself and thus has a positive impact on the life-cycle assessment (LCA) of insulating profiles produced by Technoform Bautec.

Bio-based polyamides are primarily made of oil extracted from seeds
of the castor oil plant. Together with the IFT Rosenheim, Technoform Bautec tested and released two bio-based polyamides for use as in-
sulating profiles.

Due to their good mechanical properties and their high temperature resistance, PA 410 and PA 610 are now available. Both materials as well as their standard assemblies fulfill the chemical and mechanical requirements defined in standard DIN EN14024. To ensure a good
UV resistance and an easy visual recognition of materials, bio-based profiles are offered in two different shades of grey.
