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.
