DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products today announced that it granted Nam Liong Enterprise Co., Ltd., a license to use its corporate brand with Nam Liong’s Ureamax® Plus TPU films. Ureamax® Plus is used as a membrane in the manufacturing of waterproof and/or breathable textiles and contains a minimum 20 percent by weight of Susterra® biobased propanediol. The brand license can also be used in its Enprotex® Plus waterproof and/or breathable woven fabrics containing at least 20 percent by weight Susterra® content in the TPU or PU-based resin.
Susterra® propanediol is certified 100 percent biobased by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, making it attractive for companies seeking to add renewable content to their products. A peer reviewed life cycle assessment (LCA) demonstrates that the production of biobased propanediol offers significant environmental benefits including up to 40 percent less greenhouse gas emissions and 40 percent less non-renewable energy used in its production vs. petroleum-based glycols.
