This work presents an ongoing applied R&D project focused on the development of halogen-free UL94-V0 bio-based TPUs with electrical resistivity ≤ 1000 Ω.cm. In order to achieve these features, bio-based TPUs have to be modified with the addition of a number of additives like flame retardants (e.g. phosphorous and minerals based) and potential synergists, micro and nanofillers (e.g. electrically conductive fillers). The project goal is to achieve the performance target with ≤ 15 wt.-% of load. The work will exploit fundamental know-how, looking for potential synergisms among the flame retardants and the conductive fillers. Preliminary results are presented and discussed.
