Lubrizol presented Estane TPU high performance solution for surface protection at NPE2018

Wednesday, May 16, 2018
Cleveland, OH - The Lubrizol Corporation's Engineered Polymers business participated in NPE 2018, which was held May 7-11 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL. At its Expert Super Session on Tuesday, May 8, Lubrizol presented, "Estane TPU High Performance Solutions for Surface Protection and Graphics," showcasing the benefits of plasticizer-free Estane thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) in applications such as paint protection, graphics vehicle wraps, automotive interiors, graphics media, signage, flooring, wind energy, and architectural and consumer goods. Estane TPU is one of the most consistent, high-quality surface protection solution enabling efficient processing and performance. Paint protection films (PPF) protect automotive finishes from abuse and the elements. It helps prevent paint chips caused by the impact of road debris and avoids corrosion from environmental contaminates. PPF is typically installed on the front bumper, hood and quarter panels of vehicles, and may include doors and mirrors. Benefits from the ALR series include clarity, impact resistance, wettability, self-healing and UV resistance. The Estane ALR series aliphatic TPUs are available in hard and soft grades for base and topcoat layers. Newer applications benefiting from the Estane ALR series aliphatic TPU include graphics vehicle wraps, a rapidly growing market. For graphics wraps, Estane TPU is a non-vinyl, plasticizer-free combined surface protection and print media solution that provides superior durability and ease of use during installation and removal. Compared to traditional vinyl solutions, Estane TPU provides exceptional performance for weathering resistance and longer lasting physical and aesthetic benefits, benefiting both the integrity of the film surface and the underlying vehicle surface. Films do not embrittle with time as do traditional solutions, and Estane ALR series aliphatic TPU is also fully recyclable. Low temperature flexibility allows for stretching and conformability at temperatures much lower than plasticized vinyl, while wettability provides compatibility with inks and a range of printing technologies. Peter Kirk, global surface protection marketing manager for Engineered Polymers, states, "Lubrizol is a market leader in surface protection technology, with more than 30 years experience sustaining performance in even the harshest environments." He continues, "We are well equipped to share our expertise with customers seeking to learn more about these exciting applications, which are growing rapidly across the world." - * Email
