Recently, Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation announced that the company has newly developed plant-derived polytetramethylene ether glycol (BioPTMG) and has begun supplying samples.
Mitsubishi Chemical said that PTMG can impart stretchability to fiber materials such as polyurethane elastic fiber (spandex) due to its high resilience and abrasion resistance. The company BioPTMG has the same excellent resilience, abrasion resistance, hydrolysis resistance, and low-temperature flexibility as the petroleum-derived PTMG, and is expected to be used in interior decoration, fashion apparel, industrial materials and other fields. At present, the company can provide four grades of products with molecular weights of 650, 1000, 2000, and 3000, and will further develop and expand more grades to meet customer needs.
