About Avient

Strong Foundation, Confident Future

Avient Corporation was originally established as PolyOne Corporation in 2000 through the consolidation of two companies in the materials industry. The early years were challenging as the company struggled to find or create its identity as a combined enterprise. That changed in 2006 when we embarked on a specialty transformation journey.

As the company evolved into specialty areas, we focused on putting our customers and their needs first, then looking inward to make a difference. Coincident with the acquisition of the Clariant Color business in 2020, we branded the collective enterprise Avient—a new name for a new kind of materials company.

In 2022, we expanded our materials offering with the acquisition of the protective materials business of DSM, including the Dyneema® brand, the World’s Strongest Fiber™.

Today, we are a leader in specialized and sustainable materials solutions that transform customer challenges into opportunities, bringing new products to life for a better world. Our offerings include specialty engineered materials, performance fibers, advanced composites, and color and additive systems.

Our strong foundation, customer focus, the breadth of our materials science offering, and depth of knowledge have poised Avient to drive growth and innovation for a sustainable future.
