Strong, very tough, and highly heat resistant
RPU 130 is strong, tough, and heat resistant with an impact resistance of 76 J/m and heat deflection temperature of 119 °C. RPU 130 is composed of 30% Susterra® propanediol, a bio-based material that combines performance and sustainability. RPU 130’s unique combination of performance attributes makes it comparable to an unfilled thermoplastic like nylon and polypropylene.

HIGH TEMPERATURE STABILITY
RPU 130 has exceptional thermal stability at elevated temperatures over hundreds of hours.
ENVIRONMENTAL CYCLING STABILITY
RPU 130 has high environmental stability, as it passes PV1200, a standard test for temperature and humidity cycling.
30% of RPU 130 is made from Susterra® propanediol, a 100% bio-based polymer building block.
These applications combine a need for strength, toughness, and high heat resistance, in addition to isotropy, great surface finish, and accuracy.
Push-in rivets require strength, impact resistance, and dimensional stability at elevated temperatures.
Sunglasses require strength, toughness, and a great surface finish.
Many housings demand strength, high impact resistance, and dimensional stability at elevated temperatures with a great surface finish.
