Lubrizol draws upon decades of innovation, combining specialty thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), copolymers, and static-dissipative polymer technologies to provide a single, convenient and reliable source with multiple product groups working together to solve some of today’s toughest challenges.
The Estane TPU portfolio bridges the gap between flexible rubber and rigid plastics. Estane is a highly versatile, thermoplastic elastomers that can be utilized in film and sheet, extrusion, blow molding, injection molding, over molding, calendaring and solution coating processes.
Estagrip thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) are rubberlike TPEs designed to achieve soft touch feel and surface “grip” in over molding applications.
Estaloc reinforced engineering TPUs (RETPU) are tough, high-flex modulus materials providing dimensional stability, paintability with no primers, and excellent adhesion to a variety of over molding substrates.
Estane® BCX (BounCell-X™)
Estane BCX (BounCell-X™) grades are designed to generate high performance foam parts through physical foam injection molding process.
Isoplast engineered thermoplastics (ETP) are hard and high flexural modulus polyurethane engineering resins with excellent chemical resistance and barrier properties.
Pearlbond crystalline TPU is a cost-saving formulation for the production of Hot Melt Adhesives (HMA) and Reactive Hot Melts (HMPUR), typically used in automotive interior parts, bookbinding, furniture, textile and footwear.
Pearlbond ECO is part of Lubrizol’s bio-based* TPU with renewable material content and very high thermoplasticity. Pearlbond ECO 590 can be added to HMPUR formulations to improve crystallization speed and also used for Hot Melt adhesives in heat sealable fabrics and in toe puffs and counters.
Pearlcoat is a range of special linear polyurethanes used in the melt coating process on textile substrates obtained by extrusion and calendaring and PVC compounding.
A wide range of linear thermoplastic polyurethane elastomers specially developed for use as raw materials in the manufacture of a wide variety of solvent-based adhesives.
Pearlthane is a versatile TPU uniquely developed to meet the needs of a wide variety of technical applications that require soft touch, non-yellowing, transparent, or high performance technologies.
Pearlthane ECO is part of Lubrizol’s bio-based* TPU made with renewable material content from 28% of total volume.
Carbo-Rite™ Conductive Compounds
Carbo-Rite conductive compounds and sheet products provide permanent ESD (electrostatic dissipative) solutions.
Dissipative Sheet and Compounds
Stat-Rite polymers set the new standard for test and design engineers requiring permanent static dissipation without compromising cleanliness. Unlike old technologies, such as conductive fillers and chemical anti-stats, Stat-Rite polymers blend a proprietary, inherently dissipative polymer with a variety of base polymers.
* Bio-based content as determined according to ASTM-D6866
