Lubrizol Features Estane(R) TRX TPU at NW Materials Show

CLEVELAND, Ohio, Aug 1, 2018 - (ACN Newswire) - The Lubrizol Corporation announces its Engineered Polymers business will exhibit at the 51st semi-annual NW Materials Show, August 15-16, 2018, at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Oregon.

At booth #901, Lubrizol will feature its broad, innovative portfolio of polymer solutions including Estane(R) TPU, Estane(R) TRX TPU, BounCell-X(TM) TPU, Pearlbond(TM) TPU, Pearlthane(TM) ECO TPU, Estane TPU for 3D printing, Estane(R) VSN TPU, Esdex(TM) TPU and X4zol-J(TM) fiber technology. Lubrizol provides a single, convenient and reliable source for proven technologies and innovations that work together to solve the industry's toughest application challenges in footwear (hot melt adhesives, textile coatings, midsoles, outsoles, coated yarns), apparel (fibers, breathable films, seam tapes), and even eyewear (frames).

Estane TRX TPU is an innovative polymer designed to replace rubber in outdoor, athletic and work shoe outsoles. This novel material provides outstanding benefits for consumers, designers and producers, and addresses the growing interest in alternatives to traditional rubber due to its labor and energy intensive, multi-step production process and high scrap rates. Estane TRX TPU combines the benefits of rubber-like traction with improved processing via thermoplastic injection molding. In addition, Estane TRX TPU offers superior abrasion resistance and clarity in comparison to rubber compounds.

"There is a strong demand from customers around the world to have better performing, durable, yet more sustainable solutions for footwear," says Kenneth Kim, global market development manager for sports & recreation, Lubrizol Engineered Polymers. He continues, "Estane TRX TPU is an innovative solution for outsoles for performance shoes, and can be combined with innovative cushioning technologies from Lubrizol, such as BounCell-X nitrogen-infused TPU foam and Estane TPU for 3D printed designs. The market is responding very favorably to the advantages offered by these novel technologies."

Complementing these are Pearlbond TPU solvent-free solutions for hot melt adhesives for component assembly, Pearlthane ECO* TPU, the renewable-source based (non-food competing) TPU for footwear components, and Esdex TPU resins for footwear upper constructions. With technology that covers applications from outsoles, cushioning and uppers to footwear assembly, Lubrizol is a total footwear solutions provider.

Driven by a passion for making it possible for brands to achieve new thresholds for performance, automation and sustainability, Lubrizol Engineered Polymers continually innovates to advance the inventive capacity of the footwear industry.
