Pearlthane Eco solutions, part of Lubrizol’s Bio TPU portfolio for moulding and extrusion applications, show good results in transparency, durability and flexibility, as well as very good hydrolysis resistance. The Bio TPU offering was recently expanded with a new aliphatic TPU development that is colour-stable and highly resistant to staining and UV, and a grade for 3D printing commercialised under the name Estane 3D F95A-030 BR ECO TPU. This new 3D ECO TPU is said to have a broad printing window, is compatible with standard support materials and produces highly transparent 3D printed parts.
