TEGOLON® ECO 10-10 consists of polyamide particles that are fully based on renewable sources. This new polyamide grade is based on Nylon-10,10, an AA-BB polyamide that is made in a polycondensation process of sebacic acid and decamethylene diamine. Both raw materials are derived from castor oil and are therefore fully vegetable-based. A life-cycle assessment confirms that TEGOLON® ECO 10-10’s carbon footprint is significantly lower compared to petrochemically based Nylon materials (kg CO2-equivalent/kg Nylon) – a contribution from Evonik to sustainable, responsible product solutions.
