Lubrizol Unveils Toluene-free TPU Grade for Adhesives

Published on 2017-07-28. Author : SpecialChem

The Lubrizol Corporation's Engineered Polymers business has announced the launch of a new Pearlbond™ thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) grade for adhesive powders, webs and films: Pearlbond 1160L. Pearlbond 1160L complements Lubrizol Engineered Polymers' current high-crystalline offering for adhesive films and PVC co-extrusion.

TPU Grades for Adhesive Powders, Webs and Films

High-crystalline Offer

Pearlbond 1160L is toluene-free (0 ppm) and can be converted into thermobonding films, webs and powder. It is a lightweight and environmentally friendly alternative to competing materials.

Choices for Formulators

With the addition of Pearlbond 1160L, Lubrizol now offers the choice of two solutions for adhesive formulators:

  • High-melt strength Pearlbond 1160 
  • Pearlbond 1160L, which has a superior crystallization speed and higher wettability.

Jesus Santamaria, EMEAI business director for Estane® Engineered Polymers:

"Lubrizol offers a world-class portfolio of solvent-free polymers for hot melt adhesives. Pearlbond 1160L provides a gel-free, high-performing alternative that can be easily processed and offers new possibilities for stitch-free bonding and waterproofing adhesives in a variety of applications."
