Rail & Marine

Tough Environments

The wiring and cables used on offshore platforms, onboard ships and in other marine environments need to meet high standards for safety and performance.  Geographical isolation coupled with the presence of highly flammable materials in offshore activity means rigorous standards of fire safety need to be considered. Avient has experience developing specialty polymer formulations that meet the challenges posed in these extreme environments.

When seeking a supplier of polymers for use in the wire and cable required in these for offshore and maritime applications, manufacturers should collaborate with suppliers whose experienced associates and well-equipped fire competence center can provide extensive support in the introduction of new materials that meet safety specifications and manufacturers’ demands for processing efficiency.

Avient is such a supplier, and we support your efforts globally from our network of Innovation Centers.
