Nylon 11 or Polyamide 11 (PA 11) is a polyamide and bioplastic, a member of the nylon family of polymers. It is produced from castor beans by Arkema under the trade name Rilsan. It is produced by polymerization of 11-aminoundecanoic acid.
It is used in high-performance applications such as automotive fuel lines, pneumatic air brake tubing, electrical anti-termite cable sheathing, oil and gas flexible pipes and control fluid umbilicals, sports shoes, electronic device components, and catheters.
