Highlighted case studies


Leveraging safe, high-performance materials for kitchen utensils

Consumers and regulators are concerned with the potential health risks posed by plastic kitchen utensils. In the past decade, the U.S. FDA and European Commission have banned or restricted potentially carcinogenic substances commonly found in food utensils and packaging. As a result, household goods manufacturers are under pressure to ensure cookware meets evolving food contact safety regulations. Plus, consumers expect high-quality, long-lasting products that are environmentally friendly and available at a low cost.


Sympatex goes green with Arnitel® B-MB

Envalior and membrane manufacturer Sympatex Technologies introduced bio-based mass-balanced Arnitel®, a thermoplastic elastomer, which is manufactured with bio-based feedstock using a mass-balance approach—the end product contains more than 25% bio-based content by weight. This dedicated grade will now be replaced by the Arnitel B-MB version.


Manufacturing safe, reliable and high-performance appliance connectors

As smart home technology gives us greater flexibility, connector safety and performance are critical. Envalior delivers materials that adhere to miniaturization trends, ensure the safety of end consumers, and help you improve product sustainability.

  • Optimizing gear performance in small appliances

    Many small appliances, including miniature food processors and mobile printers, require very small or thin plastic gears that fit into compact designs. If a small or thin-molded gear breaks, the consumer will need to engage in time-consuming repairs.

  • Manufacturing eco-friendly, lead-free water heater and boiler parts

    Governments and consumers are more concerned than ever with public health issues and sustainability that stem from the global water industry, including its water heater market. To protect the health of consumers, key regulatory bodies, including the NSF, have rapidly altered standards for manufacturing drinking water components. These changes include new, stringent material regulations for plumbing parts – including water heaters, heat pumps and boilers.

  • Making outdoor power equipment lighter and more efficient

    To address this demand for sustainable lawn maintenance, gardening and commercial landscaping equipment, OPE manufacturers are leveraging material science to create products that are stronger, lighter and much more efficient than gas-powered equipment.

  • Empowering athletes with sustainable high-performance footwear
