TPU Highlights at Muovi Plastics Fair

At Muovi Plastics, the following innovative TPU solutions will be highlighted:

Lubrizol's aliphatic offering ranging from 70 Shore A to 65 Shore D: expanded portfolio in order to provide materials with a broad hardness for designers or engineers who are on the lookout for improved aesthetics without sacrificing long-term performance in color-stable parts. PearlthaneTM D91T80 and Pearlthane D91T86 TPU protect your light-colored and transparent applications from damaging UV rays.

Estane® TPU for heavy-duty and food approved contact hose & tube: a wide-range of highly versatile and easy-to-process solutions which provide superior hydrolysis, tear/puncture resistance, and low temperature flexibility, including UV-resistant TPU with water tightness.

Innovative soft, plasticizer-free PearlbondTM 300 series for hot melt adhesives: to match the pace of the increasing sophistication of textiles by improving processability, shape retention, soft touch, and flexibility in body movement, while providing excellent bonding.

Jesus Santamaria, EMEAI engineered polymers business director, noted:
"We're expanding our offering of high-performing, specialty materials that offer processors and designers significant added value. The Nordic drive for innovation and uptrend environment provides the perfect showroom, and our distributor Bjorn Thorsen is the ideal partner to present our wider portfolio of aliphatic and other innovative TPUs that allow for durable, aesthetic products with new design and processing possibilities."
