High purity isosorbide is a commercially available bio-based diol (POLYSORB®, Roquette, France) with a very low carbon footprint that can be incorporated in polymers to improve thermal properties, notably to increase Tg, alongside environmental impact.
A bio-based, sustainable, renewable monomer. Safe, non-toxic, with a low VOC, perfect as BPA alternative, it enables the production of recyclable, biodegradable or compostable plastics.
Perfectly safe and produced from an annually renewable feedstock, isosorbide has a unique combination of properties that offers excellent potential for a range of CASE applications.
