The Lubrizol Corporation Key Developments
The Lubrizol Corporation Introduces New Line of Functional Polymers for Home Care Products
May 25 15
The Lubrizol Corporation has introduced new line of functional polymers for home care products. In keeping with its innovation focus on high-value technology solutions, Lubrizol's new functional polymers enable products that enrich the consumer cleaning experience by delivering enhanced cleaning and care benefits. New Noverite 301 Polymer is a novel softening additive for high performance in 2 in 1 liquid laundry detergents. The polymer has excellent affinity to fibers, which provides consumer perceivable fabric softness and fluffiness at low incorporation levels. Noverite 301 polymer has no negative impact on detergency performance and can help maintain fabric moisture wicking properties, enabling softer, more absorbent towels and more comfortable performance sportswear. New Noverite 311 and 315 Polymers are foam-boosting additives for liquid dish detergents. Long-lasting foam in the presence of organic soil loads is developed by synergistic interaction of the polymer with cleansing surfactants. Optimized polymer design allows for creation of cost-efficient formulations with high foam and excellent cleaning performance. Noverite AD 810 Polymer is a polymeric co-builder that delivers spotless dishes every time. The polymer is optimized for anti-spotting and anti-filming performance in phosphate-free automatic dishwasher detergent formulations. This novel, proprietary multi-functional polymer delivers chelation, crystal growth modification and soil suspension in powder/unit dose, chlorine gel and enzyme gel formulations. Novethix HC200 Polymer is a new innovative rheology modifier that can be used in various difficult-to-thicken detergent systems such as laundry detergents and hand dishwashing liquids to provide viscosity with crystal clear appearance. It allows the creation of premium quality laundry and manual dish detergents that keep fabrics bright and dishes spotless. Mykon TAED from Warwick Chemicals is a stain removal technology with hygiene benefits. Mykon helps white fabrics stay whiter longer, while removing tough stains like tea, coffee and juices. With its disinfectant properties, Mykon eliminates malodor from fabrics and surfaces.

The Lubrizol Corporation, Cleveland Clinic Form Joint Collaboration
Feb 5 15
The Lubrizol Corporation and Cleveland Clinic announce that as part of a new joint collaboration, Lubrizol LifeSciences and Cleveland Clinic Innovations are aiming to identify - and ultimately speed the development of - new, groundbreaking products for the medical device and pharmaceutical industries. The combination of Lubrizol's manufacturing capabilities and Cleveland Clinic's clinical expertise sets the groundwork to discover and develop new, meaningful medical innovations that meet the needs of patients and providers. The joint collaboration will connect the chemists and engineers who create the materials with the clinicians who identify unmet clinical needs and seek solutions. This collaboration will speed up product development and provide both parties with the opportunity to connect complementary perspectives. In addition, Lubrizol will have more opportunities to interact with medical professionals to understand how their products impact the lives of patients, ultimately creating better overall outcomes. Cleveland Clinic will have increased access to polymer scientists, material testing and new component designs. Lubrizol LifeSciences will provide Cleveland Clinic an in-depth understanding of functional polymer solutions, including components, novel device systems and drug-delivery combination products for the healthcare industry. Lubrizol's recent acquisition of Vesta, a leading contract manufacturer for the global medical device industry, enhances the collaboration with expertise in precision thermoplastic extrusion and comprehensive capabilities in silicone fabrication. This combination of material chemists, manufacturing engineers and clinical professionals provides an opportunity that can foster rapid new product development. Cleveland Clinic Innovations - in addition to providing access to world class physicians and researchers at Cleveland Clinic and the partners in The Global Healthcare Innovations Alliance - will provide its expertise in evaluating, validating and commercializing medical technologies. Inventors fuel Cleveland Clinic Innovations intellectual pipeline with ideas in the areas of medical devices, therapeutics/diagnostics, healthcare information technology and business delivery solutions.
