Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) is an essential ingredient in paint protection film (PPF), capable of producing PPF that can provide premium protection, without yellowing or degrading, for more than a decade.
We invented TPU more than 60 years ago and continue to produce the industry’s premier polymers through our flagship brand, ESTANE® TPU. The exceptional quality and consistency of ESTANE® TPU ensures efficient processing and produces crystal-clear, long-lasting PPF that helps keep vehicles looking showroom-new.
Our materials and applications scientists partner with film processors and PPF manufacturers to develop tailored solutions that expand the possibilities of PPF and enhance protection against everything from severe chips and scratches to extreme weather conditions. ESTANE® TPU enhances the look, feel and function of paint protection film.
Together, we can expand the possibilities of PPF, overcome challenges and bring high-quality, proven products to market quickly.
Expand Existing Markets. Build Your Brand. Develop New Applications.
As PPF manufacturers seek to become more integrated and drive innovation, discover the value “beneath the surface” of working with a TPU supplier who established the benchmark of performance for paint protection films in our in-depth eBook.
As the manufacturer of ESTANE® TPU, Lubrizol is the experienced, engaged solutions partner who helps film processors, coaters and PPF brand owners drive innovation in this dynamic and growing market.
On the surface, a hard grade of ESTANE® TPU provides stain resistance and self-healing properties. While beneath the surface, the soft grade beneath absorbs impact from stones and road debris.
To assure you receive consistent, reliable performance and ultimately peace of mind for your PPF applications, we have created a licensed partner network of film producers around the globe. Watch for the ESTANE® TPU logo and buy with confidence, or request ESTANE® TPU from your film producing partners.
