Evonik recently announced that the bio-content of it VISIOMER® Terra methacrylate monomers is now certified by DIN CERTCO ― the certification body of TÜV Rheinland Group ― and will include the label “Certified Biobased Product.” DIN CERTCO certifies products using the C14 radiocarbon method and ASTM D 6866:2021 protocol instead of merely calculating the bio-content.

VISIOMER specialty methacrylates serve a broad range of industries and applications including adhesives, and paints and coatings. Evonik focuses on customized solutions for replacing hazardous or harmful substances, facilitating weight reduction in composites, and reducing carbon footprint.

VISIOMER Terra monomers meet the highest performance requirements, containing up to 85% bio-content, and have a low hazard potential. Expanding the portfolio of VISIOMER Terra bio-based monomers is part of Evonik’s long-term strategy to protect the environment and mitigate climate change without compromising performance. In addition to DIN CERTCO certification, VISIOMER Terra products are supported by detailed life cycle assessments (LCAs) according to ISO 14040/14044.

According to Evonik, the portfolio of VISIOMER Terra products is expanding and includes bio-based equivalents of well-known monomers as well as new structures from readily available, bio-based feedstocks.
