New compound for footwear soles


Innovation for enviromental protection. This is the objective that inspired EP, a product that substitutes petroleum-based plasticizers with biodegradable vegetables oils.

Thermoplastic compuond produced with plant-based plasticizers to be used in the manufacturing of footwear soles, offering excellent performace and technical features in relation to:

  • density
  • ultimate tensile strength
  • tear resistance
  • abrasion resistance


APILON™ 52 BIO is a family of thermoplastic polyurethane based on renewable raw materials offering the same performance as traditional fossil‑based TPUs.
There are two major advantages of bio-based plastic products compared to conventional versions:

  • Reduced greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions
  • Conservation of fossil resources for future generations

Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a method for evaluating the environmental impact of a product, considering its entire life cycle from extraction of the raw materials to final disposal. The method is standardized by ISO 14040 and 14044.
