Reiku’s new cable protection tubing (identification code: PARAB) is made of 100% regenerated polyamide 12. The extended product range has a nominal width ranging from 7 mm to 95 mm for the entire field of application from cobots to large industrial robots. The halogen-free, self-extinguishing, non-flame-propagating re-compound are produced and supplied by Reikus’s partner Agiplast. Reiku’s managing director David Guitton explained: “In extensive tests, our supplier Agiplast was able to prove that polyamide offers exactly the same short and long-term mechanical properties as our conventional materials. And we naturally also make sure that the products we make from this re-compound comply with the most demanding specifications with regard to fire and also has the required very high flexural fatigue strength. We can, with a good conscience, therefore provide the same guarantee as we do with the corresponding corrugated tubing made of virgin material.”

A product family that help to save fossil raw materials in a sustainable way

Peter Sailer from Reiku added: “The environmental aspect does not stop at industrial applications. We recognized this trend at an early stage and invested accordingly to underline our commitment to sustainability and to support our customers – both OEMs and end users – in implementing their own environmental strategies. Customer applications, in some cases under extremely rough 24/7 industrial conditions, confirm that both our regenerate-based and our biobased polyamide product comply with all the expectations. They enable uninterrupted operating times for cost-efficient production over just as long a period as the types based on conventional PA.”
