Lubrizol Highlights Unique Technologies at ISPO 2018

CLEVELAND, Ohio, Jan 26, 2018 - (ACN Newswire) - The Lubrizol Corporation announces that it will showcase its broad range of performance apparel solutions in Hall C4, Booth #300 at ISPO 2018 in Munich, Germany, January 28-31, 2018. The show comprises over 2,700 exhibitors presenting the latest sports-related products from segments such as Snowsports, Outdoor, Health & Fitness, Urban and Teamsports.

Lubrizol will feature its revolutionary elastomeric fiber, X4zol(TM)-J, that brings innovation to the performance apparel industry. X4zol-J is made from a proprietary thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) resin and is available exclusively from Lubrizol and its Innovation Alliance network for circular, warp knit and denim fabrics, and seamless garments. This Innovation Alliance includes visionary industry leaders who are expert in fabric development, including Ruey Tay, Schoeller, Olah, Inc., Tefron, ChangYuan Elastan, MAS, Stretchline, Premiere Fibers, Hornwood Inc., Polartec, and Filix Creative Solutions.

Innovation Alliance members will join Lubrizol at ISPO 2018 to promote X4zol-J to the global market, demonstrate novel fabrics and garments containing X4zol-J, and help accelerate apparel innovation for leading brands. Fabrics and garments made with X4zol-J offer balanced stretch and recovery, comfortable compression and breathability, and provide exceptional wearer fit and comfort. Exemplary applications include athletic apparel, base layer, athleisure, intimate apparel, shapewear, socks and stretch denim.

Lubrizol will also help pioneering brands and designers to explore the potential synergy of skin care actives delivered through fabric with its Quiospheres(R) technology, developed by Lubrizol-owned Lipotec(R), a scientific leader in clinically proven skin care active ingredients.

Additionally, Lubrizol will highlight its performance textile coating solutions designed to help ordinary fabrics do extraordinary things. These advanced technologies - including resins, polymers, additives and formulated solutions - can work together to improve many functional and aesthetic properties such as durability, flame retardancy, abrasion resistance, water repellency, breathability and cooling.

"Lubrizol collaborates with key brands, designers and industry experts to provide superior performance apparel solutions. ISPO is an ideal venue for promoting our fabric innovation and provides a convenient meeting place to work with customers, prospects and other innovators to help brands accelerate innovation and drive differentiated performance in the fast-moving apparel industry", says Rob Richardson, Global Business Director, Performance Apparel/Fibers at Lubrizol.
