Polymer Solutions

We are polymer experts. We formulate and manufacture with virtually all commercially available materials.

Lubrizol LifeSciences produces a wide variety of medical-grade thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU).  In fact, we are one of the world’s largest manufacturers of medical grade TPU.  Our polymers have been used throughout the healthcare industry for over 30 years.

We also manufacture pharmaceutical polyacrylic acid excipients (e.g. Carbopol, Noveon AA-1, Pemulen products).  We are the world’s largest manufacturer of carbomers and have been manufacturing pharmaceutical excipients for over 35 years.  

Our polymer expertise goes far beyond those we produce.  We mold, extrude, and formulate with a wide range of biomedical and biopharmaceutical polymers ranging from silicone and thermoplastics in both medical device and pharmaceuticals to polylactic acid (PLA) and polylactic-co-glycolic acid (PLGA) in complex drug formulations.
