Lubrizol extends shelf life of its Pearlstick TPU portfolio

May 16/2018

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Lubrizol has announced that it has extended the shelf life of its Pearlstick TPU series for solvent-based adhesives up to 36 months (when stored under controlled conditions), as per GV.

The series is used, for example, in applications in the textile, automotive, footwear and furniture industries. Furthermore, the company announced that its portfolio has been extended with new products that meet Oeko-tex compliance grade requirements.

According to Lubrizol, recent developments 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 TPU resins for hot melt adhesives (HMA), said the company. 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," stated 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."
