We are building brand new technologies to make high-peformance, low-carbon microcellular PET under the OptimarPET brand.

OptimarPET is an advanced polymer material that embodies the tenets of the circular economy.

Reduce: Up to 50% lighter weight

Reuse: Up to 100% recycled content

Recycle: Single chemistry, just PET

 

Vesicus' technologies  are able to tune the microstructure within the microcellular PET, to thereby impart unique functional properties  that are beneficial for a wide range of applications.

Our technologies are focused on achieving  high-performance, lightweight, and low-carbon microcellular PET in multiple formats to address numerous  applications and billion-dollar market opportunities.

High performance features:

  • High-quality appearance

  • Tunable weight reduction

  • Superior printability

  • High toughness & crack resistance

  • High stiffness to weight ratio (rigidity)

  • Excellent insulating properties

  • Tunable service temperature

  • Tunable gas barrier

Above all else,
our technologies can 

reduce greenhouse gas
emissions at a gigaton scale

by replacing heavier,
denser materials with

OptimarPET.
