Chemiton Life®

Chemiton Life®

The new developmental “Chemiton Life®” grades are the first biobased TPE produced by Franplast.

The commitment to environment and life protection has brought us to develop new materials from renewable resources, which are good alternatives to fossil-based materials.

Chemiton Life® is the result of a carefully raw materials selection and challenging development job.
