UBEUSDAcertification UBE’s new bio-based ETERNACOLL® grades are 83% bio-based polycarbonate diols that can be used in several applications as a raw material of high-performing and durable elastomers, polyurethanes in coatings, adhesives & sealants.

USDA Label Highlights Percentage of Bio-based Content

UBE announced that it has earned the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) certified biobased product label, being able to display a unique USDA label that highlights its percentage of biobased content.

A third-party verification for the product's biobased content has been administered through the USDA BioPreferred Program, an initiative created by the 2002 farm bill (and recently reauthorized by the 2018 farm bill).

UBE produces ETERNACOLL® polycarbonate diols, a large platform of solutions offering customizable possibilities in terms of reactivity, physical form and mechanical properties given to the final polyurethane. One of the goals of the BioPreferred Program is to increase the development, purchase and use of biobased products.

Compared to standard polyols, these solutions demonstrate superior durability and long-term retention of the original performance against extreme environments, such as oil resistance, hydrolytic stability, heat ageing, oxidation stability, weatherability and chemical resistance.
