Pearlthane™ TPU covers a full range of thermoplastic polyurethane elastomers (TPUs) for extrusion, injection molding and compounding applications.
This range has been designed to meet the increasingly demanding needs of a wide variety of technical applications, such as highly flexible films, abrasion resistant hoses, soft touch injection molded parts or special compounds.
Pearlthane™ ECO TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane)
Pearlthane ECO is the flagship product under the Bio-TPU™ by Lubrizol product offering. Originally developed by Merquinsa, Pearlthane ECO is the first bio-based* TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) to not compromise on high-performance when compared to traditional petroleum-based TPUs. Its outstanding mechanical, physical and chemical properties offer significant flexibility in a wide-range of applications including:
Pearlthane ECO is made up of block copolymers consisting of a sequence of polyol soft segments and hard polyurethane segments. Pearlthane ECO bridges the gap between thermoplastics and rubbers and can be used pure, as an additive or in blends with other polymers or rubbers.
*Bio-based content as determined according to ASTM-D6866
