CLEVELAND, April 20, 2018 - The Lubrizol Corporation announces its Engineered Polymers business will be participating in Chinaplas 2018, held from April 24 - 27 at the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai, China.

Lubrizol will exhibit in booth 6.2-J47, showcasing Estane® Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU), the cornerstone of its Engineered Polymers portfolio, alongside other products and innovative applications for end-markets including industrial, sports and recreation and electronics. Advancing materials, elevating performance is the mission and passion of the Engineered Polymers business, focused on collaboration and customer success.

Pearlstick(TM) and Pearlbond(TM) Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) for Adhesives
Lubrizol Engineered Polymers offers highly versatile, easy-to-process polymers commercialized for the adhesives market, including the Pearlstick(TM) TPU brand for solvent-based adhesives, and Pearlbond(TM) TPU for hot melts adhesives (HMA), adhesive films and HMPUR (hot melt polyurethane reactive or reactive hot melt) adhesives.

At Chinaplas, Lubrizol will launch the Pearlbond(TM) 700 series (Pearlbond 701, 702 and 703), a novel product range for the hot melt adhesive market. This breakthrough thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) product range provides outstanding adhesion to both rigid and flexible substrates. Excellent bonding strength can be obtained with substrates such as cotton, nylon, polyester fibers and many others.

Also, this new offering stands out in terms of good wash (high temperature), chemical (dry cleaning) and hydrolytic resistance. The range can be applied in a multitude of demanding applications including Aerospace, Automotive, Apparel, Construction and Hose & Tube.

Stat-Rite® and Carbo-Rite(TM) Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) for Electronics
As the leader in engineered static control solutions, Lubrizol Engineered Polymers provides the highest quality, permanent Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) materials for electronic applications. During Chinaplas, customers will be able to view a study of Lubrizol's broad portfolio of conductive and dissipative polymer products, marketed under the flagship brands of Stat-Rite® and Carbo-Rite(TM).
