Lubrizol Highlights Pearlbond(TM) TPU Solutions for Adhesives at ASC Annual Spring Convention & EXPO 2018
CLEVELAND, April 12, 2018 - The Lubrizol Corporation's Engineered Polymers business announces that it will highlight its thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) product portfolio for adhesives at booth no. 724 at the Adhesives & Sealants Convention Annual Spring Convention & EXPO in Miami, Florida, on April 24. The conference and expo is the largest U.S. gathering for the adhesive and sealant industry and brings together market leaders and adhesive technology formulators.
Lubrizol Engineered Polymers will feature highly versatile, easy-to-process polymers commercialized under the Pearlstick(TM) TPU brand for solvent-based adhesives, and under Pearlbond(TM) TPU for hot melts adhesives (HMA), adhesive films and HMPUR (hot melt polyurethane reactive or reactive hot melt) adhesives. Our extensive portfolio includes resins that can be bio-based*, have a higher service life expectancy and can be applied at low-temperature cycles.
"Lubrizol has optimized the application of new solvent-free specialties for key HMA applications and is expanding into novel technologies that bring added value into emerging markets like wearables, specialty textiles and apparel, even footwear," states Dave McCaughey, North American business director for Lubrizol Engineered Polymers. "New products in the Pearlbond portfolio have outstanding bonding performance that meet added technical requirements like low-temperature flexibility, Oëko-Tex® compliance and high breathability, while creating durable, high-performing solutions for hot melt adhesive manufacturers."
Recent Pearlbond products bring soft touch without the addition of plasticizers and unique benefits for HMAs by improving processability and reducing cycle time. A new video details how high-performing Pearlbond TPU brings things together with design versatility and unique features.
Visit us at booth no. 724 at ASC Annual Spring Convention & Expo on April 24, 2018, where we will showcase the winning performance, high quality and durability of our Pearlbond and Pearlstick TPU solutions.
