DURABIO™

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
  • Chemical inertness

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 applications requiring exceptional durable transparency and visual appearance with scratch and impact resistance as well as chemical inertness.

TRANSPARENCY, MECHANICAL RESISTANCE, CHEMICAL INERTNESS
Light transmission, impact and UV resistance, contact with agressive chemicals

  • Touch screen
