Lubrizol: Lubrizol Announces Asian Availability of Two Oeko-Tex® Certified Breathable Resins for use in Textiles

CLEVELAND, April 22, 2014 - The Lubrizol Corporation announces the
availability of two Oeko-Tex®certified TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane)
resins for use in breathable textiles in Asia. Both Estane®MVT 80 NT1 and
Estane MVT 90 NT1, which are certified for Class I, II, III and IV uses by
independent testing for harmful substances in textiles by the International
Oeko-Tex Association, are now available via Lubrizol's Songjiang, Shanghai
China manufacturing facility.

Estane MVT80 NT1 (80 shore A) and Estane MVT90 NT1 (90 shore A) are
high-moisture vapor transmission resins for use as monolithic films in
textiles. This allows the garment to be waterproof, yet breathable. Both
resins have moisture vapor transmission values greater than 10,000 g/m²/day
when tested under the ASTM International test method, E96 BW.

"We have listened to the global apparel industry, and there is an unquestioned
need to shorten the length of the supply chain. Now, by offering these two
Oeko-Tex®certified grades via our Shanghai facility, our processing partners
are better positioned to supply their customers in a more efficient manner,"
notes Sally Lenhart, Lubrizol global market manager, performance films.
"Lubrizol is committed to further expanding the reach of our
Oeko-Tex®certified resins as a way to meet the needs of our global apparel
supply chain partners."

The Oeko-Tex®Standard 100 is an independent testing and certification system
for textile raw materials, intermediate and end products at all stages of
production. It was developed by the International Oeko-Tex®Association in
response to the increasing demand of the global textile industry for safer,
globally certified chemistries.
