Designers, manufacturers and formulators have been looking for soft-touch bonded materials that can improve processability and meet stringent regulatory requirements for non-toxic solutions. Furthermore, U.V. resistance, breathability and elastic recovery are also key attributes demanded from materials.

In this constant process of innovation and continuous development, Lubrizol has broadened its polymer solutions by providing two new portfolios: PearlbondTM soft 300, and fast and high heat-resistant 700. These innovations solve the challenges above by bridging the gap between adhesive and elastomer applications. The newest additions are non-yellowing and breathable grades. As an example, plasticizer-free PearlbondTM 300 TPU gives you freedom, comfort and a superior soft hand feel in textiles, footwear, outdoor equipment and leather goods.

New elasticity performance, comfort, high chemical resistance, and durability at lower temperature cycles are assured by applying the fast-setting 700 TPU series. When applying Pearlbond, processes are simplified due to short cycle time. Fabric, apparel and other substrates can benefit from outstanding adhesion and good wash- and hydrolysis resistance.

Our technologies, which are suitable for hot melt adhesives and HMPUR (RHM) processes, bring together diverse solutions for different end use applications and are expanding the universe of pioneering specialties.
