Formulated Solutions

Formulated solutions are designed to help formulators and manufacturers develop differentiated, customer-specific products across a variety of applications and substrates, from textiles to paper, film and packaging.

Lubrizol collaborates with customers to develop fully formulated coating solutions to meet challenging performance requirements for diverse applications and markets. With exceptional strengths in substrate adhesion, flame retardancy, hydrostatic resistance, pigment dispersion, barrier protection, abrasion resistance, ink receptivity and haptics, we help provide multi-functionality for unique coating formulations.

While our portfolio of formulated solutions includes some off-the-shelf products—textile coatings, ink receptive coatings, ink dispersions and direct thermal coatings—our passion is working with customers to understand specific coating needs. Lubrizol experts then develop and test distinctive solutions, providing the right balance of performance and look and feel characteristics.

Within formulated solutions, we are committed to developing innovative new solutions, such as recently developed products for durable labels in our PrintRite™ Ink Receptive Coatings, ink formulations in our Lubrijet™ product line, and more regulatory friendly coatings in our Myflam™ and Performax™ product lines.

Typical Applications

Lubrizol formulated solutions and formulated coating technologies are used in a variety of textile coating applications, such as technical, transportation, performance apparel and home furnishing fabric. They are also used in digital printing—including ink receptive coatings and color dispersions—and direct thermal coatings on substrates such as paper, packaging and film, as well as in desktop inkjet printers.
