Soft TPU Technology
Lubrizol LifeScience Polymers has broadened its line of Tecothane™ Soft polymers designed specifically for healthcare and medical applications.
This new technology features good mechanical properties, excellent resilience and recoverability, while also providing a range of material hardnesses. The new Tecothane Soft TPU products also feature low specific gravity and better alcohol and chemical resistance compared with standard polyurethanes.
Explaining how the extension of the Tecothane Soft line will lead to expanded usability, global business manager of Lubrizol LifeScience Polymers, Ralf Hüther said, “Making harder materials available means that our customers can use Tecothane Soft TPU in a broader range of applications, including larger catheters and extension tubing.”
Lubrizol’s LifeScience Polymers group is focused on linking science to life through the development of innovative polymer solutions and world-class support services for the healthcare industry. Adding to their advanced line of elastomeric TPU products is one of the numerous ways in which LifeScience Polymers meets the needs of the medical devices market daily.
Lubrizol’s Tecothane Soft TPU will be featured at the 2013 Medical Design & Manufacturing West Conference in Anaheim, Calif., Feb. 12-14. Visit booth 2312 for more information about these new products.
