CLEVELAND, Sept 28, 2016 - The Lubrizol Corporation's Engineered Polymers business announces that it will participate at the 2016 IWCS Suppliers' Exhibition in Providence, Rhode Island from October 3-4, at Booth 405. Lubrizol will also present "Estane® TPU - Pushing the Boundaries of High-Performance" in the New Product Presentation segment of the Suppliers' Exhibition, showcasing its latest innovations in high performing thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) for wire and cable applications.

Beyond being formulated for maximum abrasion resistance, Lubrizol's Estane TPU also features excellent high temperature, chemical and hydrolysis resistance, as well as excellent low temperature flexibility - expanding the boundaries of traditional TPUs in wire and cable applications.

For more than 55 years, Estane TPUs have been a trusted solution for wire and cable jacketing because of their reliability and flexibility. "Lubrizol's latest high performing Estane TPU will further enhance our customers' ability to meet more stringent temperature specifications along with the chemical and hydrolysis resistance and low temperature flexibility required in markets demanding high performance, from oil and gas to transportation" says Peter Kirk, North American power and fluid systems marketing manager, Lubrizol Engineered Polymers.

Extreme conditions call for polymers that can withstand the test of time. Lubrizol's high performing TPUs are proven to protect wire and cable jacketing in some of the industry's toughest environments. Stop by booth #405 for more information or visit
