PolyOne Focuses on Solving Customer Challenges at Fakuma 2014

October 14, 2014

FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, Germany – Manufacturers and plastics processors attending the Fakuma trade show this week will find answers that help improve operational efficiency, enhance performance, and meet environmental and regulatory goals at the PolyOne stand (B5 / 5316).

“We encourage Fakuma visitors to bring us their most challenging applications and projects so that we can work together to uncover solutions that will improve their business. We can offer fresh approaches to challenges in lightweighting, sustainability, thermal management and more,” said Holger Kronimus, vice president Europe and general manager, Specialty Engineered Materials, Europe for PolyOne.

For example, an LED lighting demonstration available at the stand offers an alternative to plasma metallizing for the molded interconnect device (MID), a critical LED component. The display highlights how Therma-Tech™ thermally conductive polymers can replace metal to improve manufacturing efficiency, simplify logistics and increase supply chain control.

Visitors to the stand can also register for seminars being conducted daily during the show that feature in-depth technical and market-related information on:

  • Reducing weight without losing performance in automotive applications
  • Improving design and manufacturing efficiency with metal replacement
  • Managing heat with specialty polymers
  • Overmolding thermoplastic elastomers
  • Reaching goals for sustainability and performance with specialty polymers

PolyOne is exhibiting at the Fakuma trade show from October 14-18.
