Projectbeschrijving

Arnitel® is a high-performance ThermoPlastic Copolyester (TPC) that offers you a unique combination of flexibility, high temperature resistance and strength - plus excellent processing characteristics.               

Arnitel® Eco material is a bio-based thermoplastic copolyester (TPE) that delivers high performance with the added benefit of a lower environmental impact. The material is 50% made from renewable resources, based on rapeseed oil instead of mineral oil. Yet…it performs outstandingly for demanding applications ranging from oven pan liners to consumer electronics to sports and leisure, automotive and furniture.

Arnitel Eco materials can deliver up to a 40% reduction in carbon footprint compared to traditional co-polyesters.

This is based on a cradle-to-gate Life Cycle Analysis that takes into account the total chain of events from growing the plants until the product leaves DSM’s gate and complements our strategy of helping manufacturers meet the growing demand for more sustainable products.

Arnitel is set to become even more sustainable in the near future as we approved BDO (1,4-butanediol) made using Genomatica’s process. In fact, when used as a raw material, their unique BDO has the potential to increase Arnitel’s bio-based content by 73%.
