Our Arnitel Eco material is a bio-based thermoplastic copolyester (TPE) that delivers high performance with the added benefit of a lower environmental impact.

Explore Arnitel® Eco

Our Arnitel Eco material is a bio-based thermoplastic copolyester (TPE) that delivers high performance with the added benefit of a lower environmental impact. The material is made from 50% renewable resources, based on rapeseed oil instead of mineral oil. Arnitel Eco performs exceptionally well for demanding applications ranging from oven pan liners and consumer electronics to sports equipment, and furniture. Arnitel Eco materials can deliver up to a 40% reduction in carbon footprint compared to traditional co-polyesters.

This is based on a cradle-to-gate Life Cycle Analysis that considers the total chain of events from growing the plants until the product leaves DSM’s gate. This complements our strategy of helping manufacturers meet the growing demand for more sustainable products.

A high-performance material

With Arnitel Eco, sustainability and high performance goes hand in hand. Arnitel Eco delivers high performance, through a wide portfolio of grades that thrive in extreme conditions and can extend product lifetimes significantly.

Arnitel Eco has a melting point of up to 200°C, making it ideal for applications with peak temperatures close to the melting point. In fact, the material maintains consistent performance across its entire operating temperature from low to high extremes, outperforming other elastomers. Unlike rubber, Arnitel Eco doesn’t require vulcanization to optimize its mechanical properties, which further reduces production costs.
