Lubrizol Expands Pearlbond Toluene-free TPU Portfolio For Adhesive Films, Powder & Webs


CLEVELAND, Ohio, Mar, 26 2019 - (ACN Newswire) - The Lubrizol Corporation's Engineered Polymers business announces the addition of a new, toluene-free Pearlbond(TM) thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) for adhesive powders, films and webs. Lubrizol has expanded the high-melt strength Pearlbond(TM) TPU portfolio for adhesive formulators by adding Pearlbond(TM) 1170L to Pearlbond(TM) 1160 and 1160L series.

These high-performing resins are already widely used in highly demanding end-uses such as fire hoses, thermobonding films for use in footwear, furniture, apparel, sealing tapes and automotive interior trim. This portfolio is the ideal lightweight solution for environmentally-friendly (toluene-free) applications and offers the following key benefits: Short cycle time, very good wetting properties and excellent waterproof performance. In addition, it is the ideal resin for film and sheet conversion applications thanks to its gel-free properties and high melt strength.

"Adhesive formulators who are looking to manufacture hot melt solutions that are efficient, cost-effective and recyclable* will be delighted with the latest Pearlbond(TM) addition. Pearlbond(TM) 1170L polymer combines these features with an improvement in resistance to heat, washing and dry-cleaning cycles. Customers will appreciate the versatility, reliability and convenience of the new Lubrizol solution in demanding applications" states Gonzalo Lowenberg, Global Technical Business Manager for Lubrizol Engineered Polymers.
