March 26, 2015

CLEVELAND – PolyOne Corporation (NYSE: POL), a leading provider of specialized polymer materials, services and solutions, has launched ColorMatrix™ Select, a cloud-based liquid color selection and supply service. The new service combines advanced liquid colorants, Web-accessed software, and automated dispensing technology to offer a complete package that enables companies and designers to take greater control of their color development and supply chain.
“From creation to product delivery, this service speeds up every step of the color journey,” explains John Van Hulle, president, Global Color, Additives and Inks, PolyOne Corporation. “We have customers who are taking this color development technology in-house to develop colors in minutes, allowing them to react quickly to market demands, achieve multi-regional consistency, and gain a competitive edge. These formulations can also be re-created in any quantity at any time at our facilities around the world.”

The ColorMatrix Select service features:

  • Rapid Color Design and Choice: Colors can be easily created using existing standards, spectrophotometer or colorimeter inputs or the software’s built-in color design tools. Customers have immediate access to a wide range of formulations with the latest pricing, performance and regulatory information all visible at the beginning of the product development process.
  • Global Availability: Secure cloud-based software houses all customer-approved formulations. These formulations can be produced locally for customers to shorten lead times and achieve complete color consistency and brand integrity.
  • Inventory and Purchasing Flexibility: Customers can order what they want, when they need it with no minimum order quantity, resulting in lower waste and reductions in excess inventory for smaller production runs.

A number of service models are available to suit specific needs. These range from creating colors remotely through one of PolyOne’s facilities, to installing this color development technology in-house for full control and maximum color development speed.
