Eco-friendly TPE

Biobased thermoplastic elastomers for environmental sustainability

We design and manufacture eco-friendly and biobased TPE compounds consisting of thermoplastic materials developed with full respect for the environment. They are inspired by the concepts of circular economy and sustainability and are mainly based on raw materials deriving from renewable sources and recycled raw materials, which represent a good alternative to materials deriving from fossil raw materials.

Biobased TPE

The recipe of biobased compounds includes various types of renewable resources and a wide range of biobased content (from 20% to 80%). Versions approved for food contact are also available as they are excellent for use in the household and Home&Design sectors.

  • Biobased content
  • Natural colour
  • Matt, good surface finishing
  • Easy processing by extrusion and injection moulding
  • Good compatibility with polyolefins and technopolymers
  • Almost totally odorless
  • Mechanical features equal to or superior to the original materials
  • Wide range of service temperatures
  • Weather, UV and ozone resistant
  • Available hardness: from 30 Shore A to 40 Shore D
  • Available density: from 0,87 g/cm³ to 1,00 g/cm³
  • No plasticizers, PVC, phthalates, latex and halogenated substances
  • Compliant with 10/2011/CE (except for fatty foods), FDA, 1907/2006/CE REACH Annex XIV and XVII, ROHS, RAEE, WEEE, ELV, EN71/3

TPE based on recycled materials

The recipe of recycled compounds includes materials from the plastics recycling chain. They significantly reduce the environmental impact, meeting the needs of the most varied sectors such as Home&Design but also industrial and electrical.

  • Recycled content
  • From translucent to filled grades
  • Good surface finishing
  • Easy processing by extrusion and injection moulding
  • Good compatibility with almost all polyolefins
  • Pad-printable versions available
  • Wide range of service temperatures
  • Weather, UV and ozone resistant
  • Available hardness: from 80 Shore A to 60 Shore D
  • Available density: from 0,88 g/cm³ to 1,04 g/cm³
  • No plasticizers, PVC, phthalates, latex and halogenated substances
  • Compliant with 1907/2006/CE REACH Annex XIV and XVII, ROHS, RAEE, WEEE, ELV, EN71/3
