CLEVELAND, Ohio, Oct. 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Lubrizol Engineered Polymers has created a co-branding network to promote its ESTANE® TPU brand of polymers for Paint Protection Film (PPF) applications through collaboration with global partners. Lubrizol, the inventor of TPU for commercial use, is a market leader serving the PPF industry with more than 30 years of demonstrated performance from its ESTANE® TPU brand, which has defined the industry standard.

Partners within the co-branding network will be authorized to promote the “Made With ESTANE® TPU” brand mark with film produced from ESTANE® TPU.
