Biorizon invites manufacturers to test bio-aromatics with premium properties

Biorizon co-initiator TNO has made considerable progress in scaling-up the production of functionalized biobased aromatics via Diels-Alder technology starting from furans. This has resulted in a unique portfolio of various samples that bring premium properties such as durability, stability, and high temperature performance to products such as coatings, adhesives, sealants, elastomers, engineering plastics and polyurethane. We invite you to test these samples in your applications and share your experience with us.
