APILON ™ 52 BIO
APILON 52 BIO are urethane-based thermoplastic bioplastics containing raw materials from renewable sources.
These compounds guarantee the same physical-mechanical properties and the same processability as traditional fossil-based TPE-U.
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.
