At present, the global nylon production is about 6 million tons, 2/3 of which is used for fiber production, and 1/3 is used for engineering plastics.
Standard nylon brush filament is a petroleum derivative. It has high output and high consumption. According to the "In-depth Evaluation of China's Bio-based Nylon Industry Market and Investment Feasibility Consulting Report for 2019-2023", it is shown that with the increasing depletion of fossil resources and environmental protection requirements, the demand for low-carbon economic products is rising, bio-based nylon brush filaments have gradually received attention from the market.
According to European Bioplastics data, the top five bio-based plastics in the world are starch-based, PLA, PA, PE, and PTT, accounting for nearly 70% of the total output, of which PA accounts for about 12%.
Renewable bio-based PA1010 opens up a new path for plastic brush filaments.
In 1958, the Shanghai plant in China used castor oil as the primary raw material to create the first new variety, PA1010.
A castor bean seed grows on barren soil. The mature seed is processed into castor oil, and castor oil is processed and cracked into sebacic acid to replace hydrocarbons.
As a kind of non-edible plant, castor beans can be recycled. In recent years, French Arkema has produced PA1010 using castor oil as raw material. It has gradually improved its layout in castor oil and acquired sebacic acid producers, Casta and Suzhou Han General polymer materials, and an Indian company engaged in producing castor oil. After a series of industrial chain acquisitions and integration, Arkema has become one of the largest suppliers of bio-based PA1010 in the world.
PA1010 is a translucent white or slightly yellow rigid solid, common characteristics of general nylon. In addition to French Arkema, Evonik and Dupont also have PA1010 supply capabilities. Mingwang brush filament selects the renewable bio-based nylon pure materials of these three companies. The nylon filament is ductile and can be drawn to 3 to 4 times the original length, high tensile strength, impact resistance, and low-temperature resistance. , It is not brittle below -60℃ and has excellent abrasion resistance and good oil resistance. Suitable for high-strength cleaning and polishing operations, generally used in fruit and vegetable cleaning and polishing brushes, food machinery brushes, glass cleaning brushes, and other fields.
And because its effect on mold is very stable, non-toxic, it is often used in the fields of toothbrushes, bathroom floor brushes, and medical brushes, such as tube cavity brushes, test tube brushes, supply room equipment brushes. Suction tube brush, surgical instrument cleaning brush, uterine cavity laparoscopy brush, etc.
The 100% bio-based castor oil renewable derivative PA1010 brush filament has a wide range of applications and development space. In terms of future business development and product design, Mingwang will be closer to customers' needs and introduce more green, environmentally friendly, and unique properties of bio-based brush filaments.
