If you have a PBAT need, please complete this form with information on your volume, location and lead time requirements, and your target application. 

 

PBAT is a thermoplastic elastomer, a random copolyester of adipic acid, 1,4-butanediol and terephthalic acid. 

Whilst PBAT is biodegradable, it is not made from renewable resources and is thus not bio-based.
