Arkema Ups Bio Content of Pebax to 100%

06 Oct 2009 • by Natalie Aster

AFrance-based chemical company has extended its range of Pebax thermoplastic elastomers with a grade made entirely from renewable resources.

Arkema says it created Pebax Rnew100 by combining a bio-sourced polyol with castor oil chemistry. The material is light-weight and resistant to heat, ultra-violet ageing and flexural and tensile stress, says the firm.

Pebax Rnew100 is designed for use in applications in eco-design programmes, particularly in the auto, electronics and sports equipment sectors.

Other grades in the Pebax range have a bio material content of between 20 and 95%.
