  • Paint Protection (PPF)
  • Automotive Interiors
  • Graphics Media and Laminates
  • Signage and Labels
  • Consumer Products
  • Flooring
  • Architectural

Benefits of Estane TPU for Surface Protection and Graphics:

  • Protects surfaces from damage caused by impact and abrasion
  • Crystal clear for invisibility on any surface
  • Excellent haptics, with self-healing properties to maintain aesthetic quality
  • Resistant to the effects of UV and environmental exposure to maintain color stability
  • Low-temperature flexibility for a wider range of installation and service life conditions
  • Plasticizer-free, yet won't embrittle over time

Peter Kirk, Lubrizol marketing manager, states, "Thanks to our technical expertise and in-depth market knowledge, we are able to introduce these high-performance solutions for surface protection and graphics applications, not only from a performance point of view, but also in relation to aesthetics and haptics.
