Lubrizol: Lubrizol Launches New Breathable TPUs At Techtextil 2015

Frankfurt, Germany, April 13, 2015 - Lubrizol Engineered Polymers announces it
will participate at the Techtextil international trade fair, to be held May
4-7 in Frankfurt, Germany. Lubrizol's stand will be located in booth A10 in
Exhibit Hall 6.1, where Lubrizol will present its extended range of
high-performance, breathable Estane®TPUs (thermoplastic polyurethanes).

The newly launched product offering spans across a wide-range of
breathabilities-SD values as low as to 0.1 and hardnesses from 75 to 88 Shore
A. Depending on the grade, customers can now enjoy the following benefits
when selecting Estane breathable TPUs:

* Superior heat resistance
* Very easy processing via extrusion coating process: no pin holes with most
non-woven substrates
* Very good bonding strength to various substrates such as PET or
* Optimized UV resistance eliminating the need for any extra stabilization
* Very high water column obtained with similar values before and after UV and
heat aging

"The use of TPU-based breathable roofing membranes is a growing trend in the
quality building market in Europe. Placed underneath an unventilated pitched
roof, breathable TPU allows homeowners to protect their insulation material
by removing any moisture resulting from condensation," says James Ruben,
market segment manager, film and sheet. "Breathable TPU roofing membranes are
easier to install and more forgiving than competing materials due to their
ultra-high mechanical resistance and total absence of holes. The product has
the adequate UV stability to cope with UV exposure before the roof tiles are
installed (irrespective of the color) and can handle the very high heat of a
roof equipped with solar panels while maintaining its properties over a
period of 25 years and beyond."
