Innovative Estane TPU Solutions

Lubrizol's Estane TPU is an excellent choice for more demanding graphics applications including vehicle wraps, decorative films, outdoor signage and durable labels. Estane TPU can be easily printed using most existing inks and printing processes. Great resistance to the elements make it an easy choice for print media or overlaminate.

Benefits of Estane TPU

  • Superior durability protects surfaces from damage by impact and abrasion
  • Self-healing properties maintain graphic aesthetics
  • Resistant to the effects of environment - color stability when exposed to UV
  • Low-temperature flexibility for wider range of installation conditions
  • Plasticizer-free; won't embrittle over time

Viviana Wilson, global market segment manager, Lubrizol Engineered Polymers, notes:

"We are committed to inspire and enable our customers to deliver innovative solutions in key growth markets through our next generation in engineered solutions for graphics. Whether for vehicle wraps, decorative films, architectural, signs or labels, the outstanding durability and self-healing properties of Estane TPU meet the growing need to have graphic films maintain their print aesthetics and be longer lasting, reducing overall cost and increasing satisfaction for the end-user."
