Lubrizol to Showcase Expanded Global Solutions at MDM West 2015

CLEVELAND, Ohio, Feb 11, 2015 - (ACN Newswire) - The Lubrizol Corporation announces that its LifeSciences business will showcase their total solutions capabilities, including those from the acquisition of Vesta, at the MD&M West 2015 Conference (Booth 2221) February 10-12 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA.

The acquisition of contract manufacturer Vesta (Booth 2026), in combination with the recent Particle Sciences alliance, means that the Lubrizol LifeSciences business now offers complete, full-service solutions to the drug delivery and medical device markets. Vesta complements Lubrizol's portfolio in the life science sector by deepening the expertise in precision thermoplastic extrusion and adding capabilities of silicone processing. Lubrizol's expertise in polymer chemistry and its powerful global organization, along with Vesta's proven success in manufacturing solutions, supports customers' success at every stage: advanced polymer materials, R&D/ engineering to meet design challenges, quality processes and manufacturing efficiency. This enhanced combination offers tremendous opportunities for comprehensive solutions.

"The addition of Vesta significantly enhances our life science offerings through the combination of strong polymer technology, applications know-how and world-class component manufacturing," says Deb Langer, vice president and general manager, Lubrizol LifeSciences. "As medical device companies look for solution providers, the combined expertise and capabilities of Vesta and Lubrizol LifeSciences delivers a more valuable offering to these customers on a global basis."

The featured LifeSciences products at MD&M West 2015 include: Aromatic Carbothane(TM) TPUs, which offer improved chemical resistance and increased resistance to creep. Carbothane TPUs are suitable for long-term implantation applications, including catheters and devices introduced in the body for durations of more than 30 days, and for permanent implants used in spinal and orthopedic applications. Tecophilic(TM) TPUs have been specially formulated to absorb equilibrium water contents from 20 to 1000% of the weight of dry resin. Tecothane(TM) soft polymers offer an alternative to materials such as rubbers and silicones, while still providing the benefits of a thermoplastic polymer. They are plasticizer free and feature low specific gravity and better alcohol and chemical resistance compared with standard polyurethanes. All grades of Lubrizol TPUs carry all the necessary regulatory credentials.

Vesta is part of Lubrizol Advanced Materials Inc.

Trademarks are owned by The Lubrizol Corporation.
