DuPont Performance Polymers will highlight its portfolio of polyesters, DuPont Crastin PBT and renewably sourced DuPont Sorona EP PTT at MakeUp in Paris 2015 under the slogan “The Gallery-Design Materials Collection.”

These high-performance plastics are offered as alternatives to current cosmetics packaging solutions. According to DuPont, they can provide beautiful aesthetics and excellent mechanical properties in contact with cosmetics formulations. Sorona EP, which contains 20 percent to 37 percent bio-based ingredients, provides additional sustainability benefits.

Crastin offers an excellent surface finish and great dimensional stability. Sorona EP offers a beautiful surface shine, durability and good dimensional stability. These two products allow design freedom and enable designers to integrate function into durable aesthetics.

The additions to the portfolio stimulate new ideas and allow designers and brand houses to develop new creative solutions for packaging in contact with cosmetic formulations,” said Alexandra Fabbro, EMEA marketing leader for DuPont Performance Polymers cosmetics.
