PolyOne Features Innovative Packaging Technologies and Inspiration at PACK EXPO 2015

September 28, 2015

CLEVELAND – September 28, 2015 – PolyOne Corporation (NYSE: POL) is highlighting innovative technologies and insights that enable emotional connections through packaging at this year’s PACK EXPO, North America’s largest annual packaging exhibition, being held in Las Vegas this week.

“Processors and brand owners collaborate with PolyOne to make material, color and finish selections that create emotional connections with their consumers, taking advantage of our design experience, as well as our expertise in barrier solutions,” said Cathy Dodd, vice president, Marketing, PolyOne Corporation. “From product protection to aesthetics, we offer packaging customers one of the largest polymer-based solution and service portfolios available.”

Building emotional connections with consumers through packaging starts by understanding the consumer’s mindset. To help customers strengthen their grasp of this critical factor, PolyOne InVisiOSM designer Theresa Patton will provide insights and inspiration during a PACK EXPO lunch seminar being held on September 29.

At the show, PolyOne will also feature a number of its specialty solutions, including a new aluminum cap liner technology, GLS™ Versaflex™ PKG 4190 thermoplastic elastomer (TPE). This advanced material helps preserve taste and aroma of sensitive beverages, and requires lower processing temperatures than traditional TPEs to save energy and enhance manufacturing flexibility.

Additional PolyOne technologies being featured include:

  • PreservaPak™ high-barrier sheet and rollstock solutions for food protection
  • Valiant™ medical-grade packaging rollstock
  • Duragard™ sheet and rollstock for household and personal care packaging
  • ColorMatrix™ light and gas barrier additives for food, beverage and personal care products
  • Soft-touch GLS™ TPE solutions for differentiated food, beverage, and personal care packaging
  • Percept™ solutions to create packaging that signals authentic products
