Dusseldorf, Germany -- The Lubrizol Corporation used the K show to promote its extended Isoplast ETP engineered thermoplastic polyurethane portfolio.
Lubrizol said its Estane Engineered Polymers platform, Isoplast ETP is a tough material that combines a high modulus with good chemical and heat resistance. Impact strength is high too, the firm said, adding that this makes it a replacement for metal in some applications. When considering polymer transparency, Isoplast ETP offers outstanding optical performance in comparison with standard rigid transparent plastics. Isoplast can be over moulded which allows for enhanced design flexibility.
Lubrizol said the range can be used In highly demanding end-uses such as automotive components, industrial pump systems, connectors, power tool casings, marine boat propellers and scaffolding fittings.
"We are excited about the growth and of possibilities of the Isoplast ETP portfolio. One of the top grades, Isoplast 302EZ, combines a set of unique properties such as chemical and corrosion resistance, light weight and dimensional stability. This makes it the material of choice for diverse end uses such as highly durable transparent fuel filter bowls and eyewear frames," said Arnau Pano, European business director, Lubrizol Engineered Polymers and LifeScience Polymers.
