Sustainability and Premium Performance Combined: The Pebax® Rnew® Family
Pebax® Rnew® elastomers provide the same premium performance as traditional Pebax® elastomers, but they are partially bio-based, made from renewable feedstock. These unique polymers contain a polyamide block that is derived from castor oil – a feedstock that takes less than one year to grow instead of traditional petroleum (fossil fuel) feedstock that may take a million years to create.
Castor oil has a very favorable carbon footprint when it comes to making high performance polymers like the Pebax® Rnew® series. The castor plant does not compete with the human or animal food chain. It is inherently drought resistant, requiring very little irrigation or fertilization. It grows in arid regions of the world where little else can sustainably be farmed. Now you can cross the finish line knowing you have done the right thing for yourself, and your planet.
