Appliance and LED Lighting Manufacturers Accelerate Innovation With PolyOne Vinyl Formulations

April 18, 2018

SHANGHAI – April 20, 2018 – PolyOne today announced that manufacturers are increasingly choosing its innovative vinyl polymers for both LED lighting and appliance applications. These materials will be featured at CHINAPLAS next week, along with examples of how they are integrated with processing and design services to accelerate product development.

In the LED lighting space, PolyOne’s Resilience LS rigid vinyl polymers have achieved several breakthroughs in multiple market segments, including landscape lighting, vehicle lamps, UV-resistant pool and spa lighting, and architectural luminaires. The materials are formulated to meet applicable UL flame rating standards while also providing anti-yellowing performance, chemical resistance and outstanding light diffusion.

Pre-colored Geon FX Metal rigid vinyl lets manufacturers achieve a bold metallic look without the limitations, costs and environmental challenges seen with other methods, such as plating, painting or film lamination.  When paired with new brilliant metallic colorants, these materials streamline production with no tradeoffs in appearance.

“Our proven materials expertise, coupled with extensive design and processing experience, gives our customers the assistance they need from start to finish,” says Jim Mattey, global marketing director, Performance Products & Solutions for PolyOne. “Appliance and LED lighting makers are leveraging our considerable insights, innovative technologies, and collaborative approach to drive success.”

PolyOne is exhibiting in Hall 8.2, stand E37 at Chinaplas 2018 from April 24-27.
