Go beyond PET towards PEIT with our plant-based POLYSORB® isosorbide
Innovate in the packaging market is a key to success!
If you are working to improve the qualities of your PET by offering innovative, high-quality materials that are both transparent and resistant to temperature, our high-purity monomer POLYSORB® isosorbide will enable you to achieve the characteristics demanded by the market.
Traditional modified polyester resins use specialty diols such as CHDM (cyclohexanedimethanol) or TMCD (tetramethyl-cyclobutanediol).
PEIT (Polyethylene co-Isosorbide Terephthalate) synthesized with highly pure POLYSORB® isosorbide exhibits significant improvements in high temperature resistance (increase of glass transition temperature -Tg) at a low level of introduction at the same time as retaining material semi-cristallinity .
Increasing the isosorbide content will enable your material to reach Tg that is equal or even superior to 100°C without compromising on resin properties such as transparency and mechanical resistance.
Polyesters based on our POLYSORB® isosorbide are often characterized by their attractive appearance and their resistance to daily chemical and physical attacks.
Sustainable and high quality thermosetting resins are demanded by markets that increasingly require composites or coatings.
Phthalate-free and 100% bio-based, POLYSORB® ID offers the performance of standard general-purpose primary plasticizers.
