Merquinsa, Barcelona, Spain today announced the launch of a new “Bio TPU by Merquinsa” label for consumer products – such as footwear, sport or electronics equipments, among others – based on high performance, renewable and recyclable resins. According to a company spokesman, the label denotes a material that is renowned for meeting strict performance standards and being more gentle to the planet. By applying this seal of quality, selected branding partners will give priority to the use of high performance, renewable and recyclable raw materials in the manufacture of their products to contribute to lower greenhouse gas emissions.
Merquinsa’s Bio TPU sold under Pearlthane Eco brand for plastics and Pearlbond Eco for adhesives, is renewable-sourced and a recyclable material (plant-based: bio-content from 20% up to 90% according to ASTM D6866) with properties very similar to petroleum-based TPUs, offering outstanding flexibility, endurance and mitigating global warming.
