EP Bio-Based Polyester Polymer

This is the first use of polytrimethylene terephthalate (PTT), an entirely new thermoplastic polyester, which also happens to be bio-based.  This high-temperature thermoplastic polyester delivers improved performance (vs. PBT and PET), including higher stiffness and strength, and higher use temperature but lower melt temperature at a lower specific gravity.  Despite the fact that it contains 45% glass, it provides excellent surface finish, allowing elimination of a paint operation and the VOCs and costs associated with painting.  In addition, its bio-based content provides for CO2 reduction and a more sustainable solution.
