Velvetol is a range of 100 % bio-based polyether polyols made with renewably sourced 1,3-propanediol. The product is said to offer an ideal replacement for petroleum-based polyols, providing advantages in various applications without compromising functionality and, at the same time increasing the renewable content of end products. Compared to petrochemical alternatives such as PTMEG, the product is said to have a significantly lower environmental footprint, providing similar or better performance and consistent quality. Allessa GmbH produces Velvetol at its plant in Frankfurt, Germany.
