Velvetol – 100% bio-based high-performance polyols


VELVETOL® is the answer, if you are looking for a green, safe, effective and compatible replacement for commonly used petroleum-based ingredients and polyols for your final product formulations. VELVETOL® is a family of high-performance polyether polyols made with renewably sourced 1,3 propanediol (Susterra®).


Velvetol can be used when making high-performance thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs), apparel and footwear, performance coatings, ink-jet inks and functional fluids. Compared to petrochemical alternatives Velvetol has a significantly lower environmental footprint, saving 40% in nonrenewables energy consumption and reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 42%.

Key Benefits:

  • 100% sustainable content.
  • Low volatile and bio-degradable.
  • High thermal heat capacity.
  • Hydrolysis resistant, high oxidative stability.
  • Water-soluble/insoluble depending on the molecular weight.
  • Increases the content of bio-based materials in the end products (up to 80 % in elastomers).
