Imagine that we are running: EVA / EBA foam
is in our footwear, making it flexible and comfortable, as it provides cushioning and protects our joints. When we do sport, hydration is essential, and thanks to polyethylene
we can handle it without bearing much weight. Those small, convenient, lightweight, easy-to-carry water flasks are made with it. Polyurethane is used in all types of footwear. Its great strength means we can tread heavily. It is widely used in manufacturing soles, as it is a lightweight, flexible and comfortable material.
And thermal tee shirts? They are also pure chemistry, made with intelligent nonwoven polypropylene
fabric, which is breathable and allows great freedom of movement. Baby’s nappies would also be impossible to keep dry without chemicals, but the polypropylene with which they’re made allows high absorption of liquids keeping the baby’s skin free from irritation. Not to mention the excipient that provides moisture and softness and carries the aroma in over 4,000 everyday cosmetic products: we’re talking about propylene glycol USP /EP
