Arnitel® B-MB

DSM's Arnitel B-MB material is a bio-based, mass-balanced thermoplastic copolyester (TPE) that delivers high performance with the added benefit of a lower environmental impact.

Explore Arnitel® B-MB, a biobased mass balancing solution

Arnitel® B-MB is a drop-in alternative for fossil based Arnitel®. These material grades come with exactly the same properties as fossil based Arnitel® grades but due to the fact that fossil-based feedstocks are replaced by biomass waste (supported by certificate) they come with a lower carbon footprint. The end product contains more than 25% bio-based content by weight. 

Arnitel® B-MB enables customers to lower their carbon footprint without having to requalify their applications. Our mass balancing approach is in line with ISCC+ standards, a globally recognized sustainability certification, and Arnitel® B-MB will be provided with ISCC+ certificate.

There are currently three Arnitel® B-MB grades available and the portfolio continues to grow. If you would like to know more about our bio-based Arnitel® B-MB grades, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
