Lubrizol extends TPUs for medical applications

February 13, 2013

Lubrizol LifeScience Polymers has debuted new thermoplastic polyurethanes with better alcohol and chemical resistance than standard TPUs.

The new Tecothane polymers are aimed at healthcare and medical applications and extend the range of hardnesses on offer.

"Making harder materials available means that our customer can use Techothane Soft TPU in a broader range of applications, including larger catheters and extension tubing," notes Lubrizol LifeScience global business manager Ralf Hüther in a news release issued by the Wickliffe, Ohio, company.
