PolyOne Corporation, a global provider of specialised polymer materials, services and solutions recently released reSound biopolymer compounds for durable applications. These innovative materials, which incorporate a minimum of 30% bio-derived content by weight, enable manufacturers in the durable consumer products sector to reduce environmental impact of their products while delivering exceptional performance equal to or better than conventional engineering resins.

“Our customers are increasingly focused on reducing their carbon footprint to meet consumers’ growing desire for greener products,” said Jean-Marc Verhaeghe, global marketing director, PolyOne Global Engineered Materials. “Until now, they had few options because biopolymers did not provide the desired performance properties. Our reSound compounds solve this dilemma by providing both a high percentage of renewable content and excellent mechanical properties. With reSound biopolymer compounds, tomorrow’s cars, mobile phones and other durable applications can stand out from the competition with a combination of sustainability and performance.”

reSound compounds combine high performance engineering thermoplastic resins with bio-derived polymers such as polylactic acid (PLA) for a unique balance of temperature, impact and cost performance, making them ideal candidates for durable applications across a variety of industries.

“This is yet another example of how PolyOne is helping to make bio-based consumer goods a reality with an innovative and robust solution,” said Marcel Dartée, PolyOne’s global marketing director for biopolymers. “Our reSound compounds bring added options to a family of solutions that includes colur and additive masterbatches for biopolymers, bio-based TPEs, and bioplasticizers.”
