The incredible speeds and levels of forces reached during tennis games require extreme resistance from racket components. Our Rilsan® PA11 solutions for grommets or bumpers provide outstanding mechanical resistance, enduring elasticity and impact strenght to protect the strings and the frame and to allow better precision and control of the ball. Compared to other materials like PA6, PA11 performance remains stable under diverse environmental conditions (humidity, temperature variations, UV exposure), ensuring durability of the racket.
Rilsan® PA11 is specified by leading brands for beginner to professional level equipments and can be found at the hands of many players in the ATP World Tour.
HIGHLIGHT: WILSON SPORTING GOODS
To celebrate Earth Day, the brand highlighted the use of our Advanced Bio-Circular Rilsan® PA11 in their products.
"Made from renewable sources, Arkema’s material is fully bio-based and recycled, redefining the way we produce our endcaps, bumpers, and grommets. It’s gentler on the earth while maintaining top performance. We like it so much, it is now in all of our in-line rackets"
Badminton shuttlecocks are technical objects with a very complex design which is challenging for injection molding.
Rilsan® PA11 and Pebax® Rnew® polymers not only provide the required properties for the application (lightness, flexibility, fatigue resistance), but are also easily processable thanks to their high melt fluidity, leading to flawless products, optimal speed and stable flights.
Our materials are specified by leading brands, and can be used as feather replacement.
