Lubrizol and VELOX Highlight Innovative Solutions at K 2016

CLEVELAND, September 9, 2016 – The Lubrizol Corporation’s Engineered Polymers business announces that it will highlight its latest thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) solutions alongside its distributor VELOX® GmbH at K 2016 from October 19-26, 2016 in Hall 6, booth A23.
 
At K 2016 Lubrizol’s Engineered Polymers team will focus on the following recent TPU developments for improved mechanical properties:

·        Novel aliphatic TPU expanding the broadest portfolio of color-stable (non-yellowing) and superior staining- and UV-resistant TPU solutions for the design of transparent or light-colored molded parts.

·        New self-healing Estane® VSN 9000 TPU: Lightweight material (more than 50% lower than metal) designed to improve the performance of aesthetically-critical parts by reducing scratches.

·        High-adhesion, soft PearlbondTM 300 Plasticizer-free series for bonding of any substrates in the textile market, even difficult ones. The outstanding elasticity of the new soft TPU gives a freedom of movement, as well as comfort and soft touch.

·        New high-performance BounCell-XTM TPU foam: Nitrogen-gas-infused low density recyclable foam providing long-term cushioning and protection in footwear, electronics, protective equipment and automotive applications.

·        New fast and high-heat resistant Pearlbond™ 700 series: High-performing solutions for fast setting bonding with good mechanical properties at low temperatures.

Jesus Santamaria, Lubrizol Engineered Polymers’ EMEAI business director, notes, “Lubrizol has more than 55 years of experience in engineered polymers and the broadest TPU portfolio available. We apply our industry leading knowledge to develop innovative materials to help inventors and engineers deliver next-generation technologies. Our lineup of advanced materials include lightweight, adhesive, soft, transparent and self-healing specialty solutions.”

Guillaume Fromont, VELOX product manager, comments, "VELOX and Lubrizol have been working closely together since 2002 with great success for both companies.  We are pleased to have a common booth at the K show and look forward to having interesting discussions with customers and prospects. Thanks to continuous investments in research and development, we constantly offer new TPU solutions to the market. We are very proud of Lubrizol’s trust in VELOX to distribute their innovative and wide-range of products.”

Lubrizol Promotes Self-healing TPU At Design Chain @K 2016 Conference

CLEVELAND, August 31, 2016 – The Lubrizol Corporation’s Engineered Polymers business announces that it will highlight Estane® VSN 9000, an innovative thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), at Design Chain @K which is being held October 24-25, 2016. Estane VSN 9000 TPU is designed to improve the performance of aesthetically-critical parts.

Estane VSN 9000 benefits designers through a set of unique technology attributes including:

  -Self-healing Capabilities: Scratches caused during production, handling and assembly of eyewear frames represent one of the major defects found in quality control. The self-healing capabilities of Estane VSN 9000 help reduce these defects by enabling minor scratches and imperfections to be repaired.  
 -Excellent Dimension Stability: Estane VSN 9000 absorbs significantly less water (tested at 70°C for seven days) and shows more uniform shrinkage than Nylon or PA, providing improved dimensional control, essential to ensuring superior fit and functional properties.
  -Chemical Resistance: Estane VSN 9000 offers better chemical resistance to sunscreens, lotions, hand creams and other frequently encountered substances, surpassing that of Nylon 12 and Polycarbonate, for improved aesthetics throughout the life of the eyewear frame.

David Pascual, Lubrizol Engineered Polymers’ global market segment manager - industrial notes, "In recent years advanced materials have emerged and are having a major impact on the design of products around us. Our Estane VSN 9000 is a self-healing material that improves initial as well as long-wear aesthetics. This material also makes it possible to form parts that can outperform traditional materials as it can withstand aggressive chemical and
mechanical attacks, thereby enabling longer-lasting aesthetics. These properties benefits producers as well as end consumers.”

The Design Chain @K conference will be held in Messe Düsseldorf on the 24-25 of October 2016 alongside the K 2016 trade show, the highlight of the plastics and rubber industry, which takes place 19-26 of October. At K 2016, Lubrizol will showcase its latest innovations for extrusion, molding and adhesives applications, exhibiting at Booth Hall 6 / A23 with its distributor VELOX GmbH.
