Cleveland, OH (GlobeNewswire) - The Lubrizol Corporation's Engineered Polymers business announces it will be featuring its high-performing bonding solutions and latest non-yellowing thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) materials at Fakuma at its distributor Danquinsa GmbH's booth B4-4507, in Friedrichshafen, Germany from October 16-20, 2018.
At Fakuma, Lubrizol Engineered Polymers will showcase its innovative polymer solutions for non-yellowing, UV-resistant materials for the outstanding physical and aesthetic properties they provide in markets like surface protection, transportation, consumer electronics and industrial specialties. New developments include bio-sourced*, aliphatic TPU and other self-healing technologies.
Lubrizol has expanded the high-melt strength PearlbondTM portfolio for adhesive manufacturers with new TPU grades bringing extra flexibility, low activation temperature, and soft touch for a wide range of applications such as seam tapes in apparel, hand bags, shoes, automotive seating, and heat transfer labels. Pearlbond(TM) 300 series is also applied as an additive to increase impact resistance. Its low activation temperature makes it an ideal bonding solution when used in combination with delicate substrates such as leather, cotton and silk.
"Our customers are constantly looking to new materials to advance their products and enhance the value of their business in the presence of increasing end-user expectations. Pearlbond(TM), PearlthaneTM and Estane® TPU materials in combination with Lubrizol's process and application know-how, offer novel solutions to satisfy these needs," states Stijn Verschuuren, Regional Commercial Manager Lubrizol Engineered Polymers.
