Empower Materials is the producer of QPAC® — the world’s cleanest thermal decomposable binder.
QPAC® poly(alkylene carbonate) copolymers are a unique family of innovating thermoplastics representing a true breakthrough in polymer technology. While traditional plastics have been primarily petroleum based, these new materials are derived from carbon dioxide and are produced through the copolymerization of CO2 with one or more epoxides.
The resultant polymers are amorphous, clear, readily processable and have long term mechanical stability. They are also environmentally friendly and consume 50% less petrochemicals, unlike other polymers which are 100% petrochemical based. In addition, they exhibit biodegradable properties.
