Ineos Styrolution's new Styroflex Eco S-TPE chosen for flooring by nora by Interface

Styroflex ECO 2G66 B60 is a RSB2 (Roundatable on Sustainable Biomaterials—rsb.org) compliant product leading to a 100% substitution of fossil-sourced styrene with an RSB-certified bio-attributed styrene, and 74% lower greenhouse gas footprint when compared to styrene produced from fossil feedstock. Styroflex is Ineos Styrolution’s brand for SBC3 copolymers which reportedly offer properties of a styrenic thermoplastic elastomer (S-TPE), suitable for extrusion and injection molding.
