Apilon 52 bio

APILON 52 BIO are urethane-based thermoplastic bioplastics (TPE-U or TPU) containing raw materials from renewable sources.
These compounds guarantee the same physical-mechanical properties and the same processability as traditional fossil-based TPE-U.
APILON 52 BIO includes soft and rigid grades (ester, ether, ester ether-based) and special haptic compounds which give the product its rubbery and matt properties.
These bioplastics from renewable sources offer significant environmental benefits by reducing the emissions of greenhouse gases (e.g. CO2) and saving fossil-based resources for future generations.
