Arkema ~ Orgasol®


KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa.—Arkema launched Orgasol®, a microporus powder range of ultrafine polyamide powders produced by polymerising lauryl and caprolactam using an unique patented process. The process produces a full range of powders with particles from 5 to 20 µm without grinding. Each grade of Orgasol powders contains spherical particles, microporous, with a very narrow particle size distribution.
