Bio TPU™ by Lubrizol is a revolutionary line of bio-based* thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) that’s made with renewable-sourced material (content ranging from approximately 30%–70%*). Bio TPU's performance and benefits are comparable to, and sometimes even better than, traditional petroleum-based TPU, and can range in hardness from 82 Shore A to 55 Shore D. Bio TPU is commercialized as ESTANE® ECO (previously known as Pearlthane™ ECO) for molded, extruded and coextruded end applications, and as Pearlbond™ ECO for adhesive formulations.
