Polymers for long-lasting surfaces
Backed by more than 30 years of experience in surface protection applications, Estane TPU from Lubrizol Engineered Polymers provides performance with transparency after long-term exposure to the elements, such as UV light, moisture, physical wear and chemicals and more.
Estane polymers can help protect and maintain aesthetics in demanding surface applications for automotive and consumer products, building and construction, and graphics. Estane material can also be recycled due to its thermoplastic behaviour.
Lubrizol has expanded its portfolio for long-lasting outdoor solutions, including the Estane ALR series for PPF and graphics. The new colour-stable grades are Estane 91F88 grade for surface protection applications such as flooring; and Estane ALR MC-93A-VE TPU for melt coating process, providing hydrolytic and UV stability.
Dr Romina Marin, global business manager surface protection for Lubrizol Engineered Polymers, commented,
Estane ALR MC-93A-VE TPU was recently launched and is one of its kind designed to outperform other materials in abrasion and extreme weather endurance for melt coating end applications that need to maintain initial clear or bright colours, and withstand harsh conditions, like tents or inflatables.
