Lubrizol Specialty Chemicals (Shanghai) Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of The Lubrizol Corporation (NYSE: LZ), recently introduced an expanded portfolio with the addition of Isoplast™ Engineering Thermoplastic Polyurethane Resins (ETPUs). Isoplast™ ETPUs are said to combine the toughness and dimensional stability of amorphous resins with the superior performance and chemical resistance associated with semi-crystalline resins. Isoplast™ ETPU is available in impact-modified, clear and glass-reinforced resins, offering a range of options to meet the most demanding injection molding applications.
Isoplast™ ETPUs are known for their use in a variety of niche, specialty applications that require their unique combination of high-end engineering properties such as clarity, impact strength and chemical resistance. "The addition of Isoplast™ ETPU capabilities and products to our existing Estane® Engineered Polymers business supports our strategy of growth through geographic expansion, as it will allow us to introduce new products and technology with strong brand recognition in the US to international markets," said Mike Vaughn, Lubrizol vice president, Engineered Polymers.
