Interesting Facts

 Lubrizol Advanced Materials Spain S.L. was previously known as Merquinsa, a world leader in specialty thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPUs) and was acquired by Lubrizol in November 2011. The acquisition by Lubrizol extended the Estane® Engineered Polymers business unit and brought an expanded product portfolio driven by innovative technologies commercialized under the Pearlthane™ and Pearlcoat™ brand names; as well as Pearlstick™ and Pearlbond™ TPU product ranges for adhesives.

The companies’ product lines are now fully integrated under Lubrizol's Engineered Polymer business. The resulting product portfolio delivers enhanced solutions to various market segments by providing one source-one solution for the different materials required in an end-use application.  Watch our new footwear video as an example.
