Brooks shoes step ahead in green race with Pearlthane ECO

Brooks Sports, Inc. has chosen to collaborate with Merquinsa and its Pearlthane ECO thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPU) for its latest advancement in more sustainable performance running footwear. Pearlthane ECO is Merquinsa's pioneering bio-based TPU, made from renewable sources.

Brooks Sports' running shoes are a step ahead in the green race to provide a more sustainable running experience. With Pearlthane ECO molded parts, Brooks' footwear is reducing its impact on the environment while setting the pace on performance and aesthetic design. Merquinsa's Bio TPUs are renewable-sourced (bio-content from 20% up to 90% according to ASTM D6866) and recyclable materials with properties very similar to petrochemical-based TPU, contributing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

“At Brooks, we are working to incorporate Merquinsa's Pearlthane ECO TPU into future footwear designs,” said Future Concepts Manager Derek Campbell “Brooks is committed to fostering an environment where life can thrive for the long run, and we can help do our part through the responsible use of materials such as Pearlthane ECO.”

Merquinsa is a leading thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) specialty producer, providing innovative products for injection molding, extrusion, calendering, melt coating, compounding and adhesive applications. Merquinsa was recently granted the Frost & Sullivan 2008 Global Thermoplastic Urethane (TPU) Product Innovation Green Excellence of the Year Award. This award recognizes Merquinsa´s innovation in biopolymers, with its groundbreaking Bio TPU made from renewable Carbon resources and successfully marketed globally under Pearlthane and Pearlbond ECO brands.

Merquinsa's headquarters are in Barcelona, Spain with regional centers in Asia and North America.
