Lubrizol Announces Participation in Chinaplas 2017

CLEVELAND, May 11, 2017 - The Lubrizol Corporation's Engineered Polymers business announces its participation in Chinaplas 2017 from May 16 - 19, Booth No. 10.2E41 in Guangzhou, PR China. Lubrizol Engineered Polymers will showcase its latest developments in low smoke, zero halogen flame retardant thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPUs), soft TPU solutions for wearable devices, microcellular TPU foam and TPU for footwear outsoles.

Estane® TPU - Low Smoke, Zero Halogen Flame Retardant TPU
Lubrizol's low smoke, zero halogen flame retardant Estane TPU is approved for use via the Chinese CQC 1103-1105 standards development. This innovative product was specifically designed to meet the stringent requirements (both domestic and international) for electric vehicle charging station cables. In addition, it provides excellent abrasion and tear resistance, oil resistance, water and weather resistance, anti-bending properties, and can help make wire and cable jacketing thinner - all the necessary properties to ensure applications safety.

Estane® SKN TPU - Soft TPU for Wearable Devices
Lubrizol strives to bring customers the latest TPU innovations via our wide-ranging portfolio of solutions that offers various benefits for wearable device applications. Our Estane SKN TPU series provides soft touch/feel, skin safety, excellent processability and colorability. Estane SKN TPUs also provide improved performance in abrasion resistance and mechanical capability to make your wearable device more durable compared to other material options.

BounCell-X(TM) TPU - Microcellular TPU Foam
BounCell-X(TM) TPU microcellular foam, made with a proprietary physical foam injection molding technology, generates a highly uniform cell structure that provides more than an 80% reduction in density when compared to conventionally molded TPU.  Additionally, BounCell-X technology, utilizing nitrogen gas as a blowing agent, contains no extra chemical additives, making it a good fit for brands with sustainability goals and post-consumer recycling* programs.

Estane® TRX TPU - High Traction TPU for Footwear Outsoles
Estane TRX TPU allows designers to create outsoles with increased wear and abrasion resistance, enhanced wet traction, and the flexibility to utilize a wide color range - even ultra clear - all while using your own injection molding machines. Soft grades available.
