Lubrizol To Showcase New Coating Technologies At IDEA19

Cleveland (GlobeNewswire) - The Lubrizol Corporation announces it will exhibit at IDEA19 in Miami Beach March 25-28, 2019 in booth #640, showcasing several innovative polymer and additive technologies that enhance performance of specialty papers, textiles and nonwovens.

  • Flame retardant technologies for diverse applications will be a significant focus. New PVC, PUD, and non-halogenated, flame retardant polymers enable customers to design flame retardance into a broad range of applications. New Hycar® NHFR technology can eliminate the use of particulates and heavy metals from flame retardant coatings without the use of halogens.
  • New, renewable-sourced coating technologies that are formaldehyde-free and APEO-free will also be showcased. These technologies provide customers the ability to formulate sustainable solutions with no sacrifice in functional performance.
  • Aptalon(TM) polyamide polyurethane technology enables coating products to be designed for higher heat and abrasion resistance.

Lubrizol's exhibit will also include a "How Can We Help?" desk, staffed with Lubrizol experts ready to discuss unique customer formulation requirements. Visitors will be able to challenge Lubrizol experts for polymer and additive solutions to their toughest problems in areas such as abrasion resistance, flame retardance, water resistance, olefin adhesion, moisture vapor transmission, chemical resistance, glass binding, tear resistance and more.

"Lubrizol has developed some remarkable new coating technologies that are bringing higher levels of protection and performance for paper, textile and nonwoven applications," shares Gary Anderle, marketing manager, Lubrizol Performance Coatings. "We're excited to share our new product line-up with customers and collaborate with them to deliver differentiated products.
