Lubrizol unveils low density hydrophobic TPU for healthcare applications

February 17/2012

(specialchem4adhesives) -- The Lubrizol Corporation announces a new low density hydrophobic thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) technology for medical and healthcare applications. The company launches the product at the 2012 Medical Design & Manufacturing show in Anaheim, CA.

This new hydrophobic Tecothane Soft technology eliminates the need for plasticizers to produce softer grades of material. In addition, these TPUs exhibit relatively low tack with use of significantly reduced amounts of lubricant.

Deb Langer, general manager - life science polymers, explains, "Our unique soft TPU polymer can be utilized in areas where silicones are traditionally required. The Tecothane Soft polymer technology may be extruded or injected molded utilizing traditional processing equipment. Techothane Softs unique features provide performance for the designer while maintaining comfort for the patient."

The Lubrizol Corporation, a Berkshire Hathaway company, is an innovative specialty chemical company that produces and supplies technologies to customers in the global transportation, industrial and consumer markets. These technologies include lubricant additives for engine oils, other transportation-related fluids and industrial lubricants, as well as fuel additives for gasoline and diesel fuel. In addition, Lubrizol makes ingredients and additives for personal care products and pharmaceuticals; specialty materials, including plastics technology and performance coatings in the form of specialty resins and additives. Lubrizols industry-leading technologies in additives, ingredients and compounds enhance the quality, performance and value of customers products, while reducing their environmental impact.
