New Bio-based Engineering Plastic

BIO BASE ENGINEERING POLYMER

DURABIO™ combines most of the advantageous properties of Polycarbonate (PC) and those of the Polymethacrylate (PMMA), with additionally the bio origin of raw material.

KEY FEATURES

  • Excellent optical and mechanical properties
  • Superb light transmission and UV-resistance
  • Ductility, with strong impact resistance
  • High heat resistance
  • Scratch resistance

DURABIO™ THE RENEWABLE WAY!

DURABIO™ is partially biobased and truly durable engineering plastic. It is made from isosorbide, which in return is derived from sorbitol, a widely available feedstock.

APPLICATIONS

DURABIO™ is particularly designed for scratch and impact resistanceapplications requiring exceptional durable transparency and visual appearance, such like:

  • Touch screen
  • Optical film: high transparency, low birefringence
  • Interior automotive console and dash-bord trims: paintless decorative parts including black-piano color
  • Exterior automotive radiator grille and pillar paintless decorative parts, including black piano color
