CLEVELAND, Ohio, Apr 11, 2018 - (Media OutReach) - The Lubrizol Corporation's Engineered Polymers business announces that it has extended the shelf life of its Pearlstick(TM) thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) portfolio for solvent-based adhesives. Furthermore, the portfolio has been extended, increasing the number of products that meet Oeko-tex(R) compliance grade requirements.
The Pearlstick TPU series for solvent-based adhesives have applications in the textile, automotive, footwear and furniture industries and is available on a global basis. The shelf life of these materials has been extended up to 36 months (when stored under controlled conditions).
Recent developments by the adhesives technical experts at Lubrizol Engineered Polymers have increased the number of Pearlstick TPU resins for solvent-based adhesives which are Oeko-tex-compliant. This also applies to most of the solvent-free Pearlbond(TM) TPU resins for hot melt adhesives (HMA). These products address the growing demand for materials that have successfully passed testing for compliance with regulatory requirements such as Oeko-tex, in the textile industry.
"As the market leader in TPU and in TPU for adhesives applications, we are continuously improving our polymers and product range. In adhesives, our focus goes beyond finding more environmentally-friendly materials or enhancing properties such as thermoplasticity or green strength," states Jane Cai, regional business director, Lubrizol Engineered Polymers, Asia Pacific. "It also includes increased shelf life for better supply chain management across the value chain. Adhesive applications in the textile industry are growing in line with process automation, as is the need for multifunctional materials. Our innovation efforts are focused on enabling both."
