API and Ems-Grivory cooperate for the development of sustainable eyewear
API has announced a partnership with Ems-Grivory. The cooperation aims at developing sustainable eyewear solutions with a lower environmental impact. Engineers from both companies will collaborate on combining adhesion modified soft-touch TPEs from API with the harder Ems Grilamid TR or Grilamid BTR materials, thereby fully complying with the VDI 2019 standard. Both companies will work on the development of specific bio-solutions, both on a fossil and renewable basis.
“We are excited to partner with Ems-Grivory as we focus our combined expertise serving a broader and greener product range,” says Giancarlo Busa, Business Unit Manager, Footwear & Sporting Goods, API. “Our materials will satisfy social, economic and environmental benefits, without imposing performance limitations. We strongly believe in the future of innovative and sustainable solutions for eyewear.”
