Merquinsa´s renewable-sourced TPU to be used in sustainable running footwear products

16-Jun-09
Leading thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) specialty producer Merquinsa (Spain) announced that its bio-based TPU offering Pearlthane® ECO has been chosen to provide sustainable performance running footwear solutions by a leading US-based company. Brooks Sports will produce molded parts for its footwear products using Merquinsa's Pearlthane ECO TPU to reduce its environmental impact while setting the pace on performance and aesthetic design. Merquinsa's Bio TPUs are renewable-sourced (bio-content from 20% up to 90% according to ASTM D6866) and recyclable materials with properties very similar to petrochemical-based TPU, contributing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The Spanish company was granted the Frost & Sullivan 2008 Global Thermoplastic Urethane (TPU) Product Innovation Green Excellence of the Year Award.
