CLEVELAND -- The Lubrizol Corporation's Engineered Polymers business has announced that it will be showcasing its thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) product portfolio for textiles, hot melt adhesives and film and sheet at hall 6.1, stand B50 at the Techtextil trade show in Frankfurt (Germany) from May 9-12, 2017.

New Fiber Technology

The show is dedicated to advanced textiles and specialty fabrics, bringing together leaders from the industry which provides Lubrizol an excellent opportunity to showcase its PearlbondTM TPU for adhesives, X4zolTM-J fiber and Estane® TPU film technologies for textiles.

X4zolTM-J Fiber

  • Lubrizol's X4zolTM-J, a fiber TPU, is a new elastomeric monofilament that is manufactured differently from spandex, resulting in unique qualities that provide comfort above and beyond traditional stretch fibers. 
  • X4zolTM-J takes apparel fit to the next generation as it provides balanced 360º comfortable stretch and support, breathability and sustainable benefits. 

James Ruben, global market segment manager, Lubrizol engineered polymers, stated:
"Lubrizol collaborates with HMA formulators and manufacturers to provide materials with superior performance for today's textiles. Techtextil allows us to discuss major textile challenges with key industrial players, and explore how Lubrizol's innovative solutions perfectly fit to integrate breakthrough technology and create a durable new fabric solution."
