March 29, 2019

MEXICO CITY – March 29, 2019 – At the 2019 Plastimagen tradeshow next week, PolyOne is showcasing its range of polymer and colorant solutions and services developed to tackle customer needs from concept and design through commercialization. Visitors to the PolyOne booth will be able to explore innovations for application-specific products, sustainable solutions and service offerings designed to differentiate products and streamline production.

PolyOne’s display features specialized polymer solutions and local services, including:

  • EMI / RFI Shielding and Conductive Formulations: New in 2019, PolyOne has added Surround™ long fiber formulations to its conductive polymers portfolio. Targeted at EMI / RFI shielding applications, Surround formulations extend the range of electrical conductivity possible with Stat-Tech™ electrically conductive formulations, and join Therma-Tech™ thermally conductive polymers
  • OnColor™ SC Super Concentrate Technologies: Colorant technologies that use greater active pigment loadings to achieve improved opacity and enable the increased use of recycled content without sacrificing color design
  • 2020 Color Inspiration Guide: A collection of four progressive and dynamic color palettes that represent a myriad of viewpoints from visionaries around the world
  • Reinforced Polyolefins for Automotive: Maxxam™ LO low odor talc-filled polypropylenes and Maxxam™ XST thermoplastic olefins are the latest additions to a complete line of specially formulated polyolefins. Maxxam™ LO materials help OEMs meet vehicle interior air quality (VIAQ) standards in underhood HVAC applications because it enables reduced VOC emissions and consistently achieves odor testing results of 3.0 per VDA 270. In addition, Maxxam™ XST materials offer an exceptional balance of stiffness and impact performance for automotive interior design, even in cold temperatures.
  • Polymer Distribution: Leveraging a comprehensive portfolio of polymers, colorants, and additives, our knowledgeable professionals help streamline product design, material selection, manufacturing processes, and supply chain efforts through local support and global availability
  • Low VOC / FOG Elastomers: OnFlex™ LO low VOC / FOG thermoplastic elastomers reduce VOCs and fogging to help satisfy Vehicle Interior Air Quality (VIAQ) standards in automotive HVAC components, fasteners / clips, and interior trays
  • Reinforced Polymer Composite Technologies: ComplētTM long fiber reinforced thermoplastic composites and OnForce™ LFT long fiber reinforced thermoplastic composites provide high-strength-to-weight ratios, high dimensional stability and creep / fatigue performance for demanding body and structural components in automotive vehicles and outdoor goods such as ATVs
  • Vibration Damping Technologies: Versaflex™ VDT thermoplastic elastomers reduce appliance vibration and ‘walking’ when used in anti-vibration feet for top load washing machines, and can be overmolded to help eliminate secondary processes and reduce cycle time

PolyOne is exhibiting at Plastimagen in Mexico City, Mexico, in booth 2114 from April 2-5, 2019.
