German chemical giant BASF has said it will now offer its bio-based nylon, which is derived from castor oil, in a version suitable for monofilament applications that can be used for textile fibres. Castor oil based sebacic acid is used to produce the company’s Ultramid® S Balance.

The high performance polyamide 6.10, partly based on renewable resources, is available in various viscosities. In compounded and glass-fiber reinforced versions, BASF has already introduced the material in different commercial applications, e.g. in a design lamp or automotive quick connectors.
