Lubrizol will showcase innovative TPU solutions from its new Estane®
3DP Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) portfolio in Hall 3.0 at Booth A90.
with the show's goal to inspire visitors to design new parts using 3DP,
Lubrizol will showcase commercial parts using Estane® 3DP TPU in Fused
Deposition Modeling (FDM) technology, as well as developmental parts based on Estane®
TPU powder and HP® Multi Jet Fusion™ (MJF) technology. Featured
applications include footwear, consumer electronics and automotive.
The Estane® 3DP TPU
portfolio maintains all the unique attributes typically expected of Estane®
TPU, including a wide range of hardness (Shore A 70 to Shore D 80), high
