Satisfying sustainability and performance goals

The demand for sustainable products is compelling product designers and application engineers to find alternatives to traditional materials. In turn, incorporating these materials can raise questions and pose new challenges. We can help.

Our reSound™ thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) portfolio includes recycled content (reSound REC TPEs), bio-based (reSound BIO TPEs), and eco-conscious (reSound Ultra-Low Carbon Footprint TPEs) formulations that turn these challenges into opportunities and empower you to enhance sustainability and develop innovative products.

These sustainable polymer options offer high-performing alternatives to traditional, petroleum-based TPEs. However, their differences can impact colorability, specific sustainability goals, and performance attributes. We invite you to explore these solutions and contact us for insight into which strategy is right for you.

Benefits of TPEs with Sustainable Content
  • Comparable performance to prime TPEs
  • Support a circular economy by using recycled or plant-based content and improve overall life cycle analysis
  • Colorable and customizable formulations to meet brand and application specifications
  • Can be overmolded to PP, PC, ABS, PC/ABS, and PE
