Mazda CX-5.
Mazda CX-5.

Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation (MCC) and Mazda have jointly developed a new grade of bio-based engineering plastics DURABIO that has been adopted for the front grill of the Mazda CX-5 SUV.

DURABIO is made from isosorbide derived from renewable plants. The material features superior performances compared with other bio-based engineering plastics in terms of impact resistance, heat resistance and weathering ability, according to the companies.

It also has good color-capability and, simply by adding pigments, creates a "mirror-like" smooth surface and deep color tone.

Furthermore, MCC said its hard surface and resistance to scratch eliminates the need for any coating process, enabling reduction in volatile organic compounds (VOC) emissions during production.

Due to improvement in resin composition, DURABIO offers better formability, making it possible for production of front grill and other large exterior components.

The new grade is expected to be used for future models launched by Mazda.
