Lubrizol Chlorinated Applications to Attend NPE 2018


The Inventors of CPVC Introduce New Offerings and Capabilities                                                 

CLEVELAND, April 30, 2018 - The Lubrizol Corporation announces that its Chlorinated Applications team will introduce new, unique capabilities and specialty CPVC compounds at NPE 2018, May 7-11, at the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando Florida. 

Long known as the market leader in CPVC piping, Lubrizol has expanded the potential application of novel CPVC compounds. Now, CPVC resins and compounds can be designed for use in a wide range of finished forms, including lightweight profiles, molded parts, foam shapes, flexible sheets and other customized solutions for building and construction, transportation, fire protection, clean room and industrial applications. 

Chlorinated Applications' technologies are inherently flame retardant - having high ignition temperature and self-extinguishing properties - without the use of flame retardants and smoke inhibitors.  

As the inventors of CPVC, Lubrizol builds on more than 60 years of proven experience working with chlorinated resin and compounds. With unmatched formulating and processing expertise, and customer-focused technical service, the Lubrizol Chlorinated Applications team is ready to help designers and processors optimize products to their specific performance requirements. Formulations can be tailored to optimize flame retardancy, processability and heat performance.

Continuous focus on internal and external innovation and quick responsiveness makes Lubrizol an ideal development partner. If you are an engineer, material specifier, in product development or R&D, or wish to learn more about CPVC and other fire-resistant materials from Lubrizol, stop by and see us at Booth S12115 in the South Hall of the Orange County Convention Center.  We welcome the opportunity to collaborate with you.
