lubrizol-pearlbond-adhesive The Lubrizol Corporation's Engineered Polymers business announces the addition of a new, toluene-free Pearlbond™ thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) for adhesive powders, films and webs. Lubrizol has expanded the high-melt strength Pearlbond portfolio for adhesive formulators by adding Pearlbond 1170L to Pearlbond 1160 and 1160L series.

Specially Designed for Highly Demanding End-uses

These high-performing resins are already widely used in highly demanding end-uses such as fire hoses, thermobonding films for use in footwear, furniture, apparel, sealing tapes and automotive interior trim.

This portfolio is the ideal lightweight solution for environmentally-friendly (toluene-free) applications and offers the following key benefits:
  • Short cycle time
  • Very good wetting properties
  • Excellent waterproof performance

In addition, it is the ideal resin for film and sheet conversion applications thanks to its gel-free properties and high melt strength.

Cost Efficient Recyclable Versatile TPU

"Adhesive formulators who are looking to manufacture hot melt solutions that are efficient, cost-effective and recyclable will be delighted with the latest Pearlbond addition. Pearlbond 1170L polymer combines these features with an improvement in resistance to heat, washing and dry-cleaning cycles. Customers will appreciate the versatility, reliability and convenience of the new Lubrizol solution in demanding applications" states Gonzalo Löwenberg, Global Technical Business Manager for Lubrizol Engineered Polymers.
