Velox launches Lubrizol’s new TPUs
At Medtec 2012, Velox, Hamburg-based raw materials distribution and sales specialist will be presenting two new TPU solutions for the medical and healthcare applications, produced by The Lubrizol Corporation.

Several grades of Pre-colored Isoplastthermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) resin offered in white for non-implantable applications. Adding color during polymerization prevents additional heating and diminishes variability. This helps to reduce scrap, eliminate defects and offer more consistent batch-to-batch melt indexes.

The new hydrophobic Tecothane Soft technology: this new low density hydrophobic thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) technology eliminates the need for plasticizers to produce softer grades of material. In addition, these TPUs exhibit relatively low tack with use of significantly reduced amounts of lubricant.

This unique soft TPU polymer can be utilized in areas where silicones are traditionally required. The Tecothane Soft polymer technology may be extruded or injected molded utilizing traditional processing equipment. Techothane Soft’s unique features provide performance for the designer while maintaining comfort for the patient.”
