Lubrizol Launches New Pearlbond 920 TPU Grade for Hot Melt Adhesives in Outdoor Application

August 10 2020

Lubrizol Engineered Polymers has launched a new, plasticizer-free Pearlbond 920 TPU for hot melt adhesives that require a UV and color-stable material in outdoor applications.

New Pearlbond 920 TPU has superior weatherability, excellent hydrolysis resistance and can be applied in sportswear, edge banding in furniture, interlinings, reflective tapes, automotive interiors and awnings. Soft, plasticizer-free with a high flexibility across a very wide range of temperatures, this new grade can be heat-activated at low temperatures on a wide range of equipment such as extrusion (slot die, flat die, blown film and gravure roller coating machines) and powder coating making it the ideal choice when bonding delicate substrates such as leather. Pearlbond 920 TPU’s good “wetting” properties ensure a very high bonding strength without compromising soft touch feel or flexibility.
