VELVETOL® is a family of high performance polyether polyols made with renewably sourced 1,3-propanediol (Susterra®). Providing a multitude of advantages in various applications without compromising functionality and, at the same time increasing the renewable content of end products, VELVETOL® offers an ideal replacement for petroleum based inputs and polyols.

Compared to petrochemical alternatives such as poly-(tetramethylene-ether)-glycol (PTMEG), polypropyleneglycol, (PPG), polyethyleneglycol (PEG) VELVETOL® has a significantly lower environmental footprint, saving 40 % in nonrenewable energy consumption and reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 42 % as proofed by an ISO 14000 compliant life cycle analysis.

Compared to many other plant-derived polyols, VELVETOL® ...
