PolyOne Showcases Customer Success Sparked by Collaboration and Specialty Polymers at Fakuma 2017

October 16, 2017

FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, Germany – October 16, 2017 – PolyOne is highlighting creative applications its customers have developed with the company’s specialty polymer formulations and services during the Fakuma show this week. Recently completed applications on display will include a paint replacement project for one of the world’s largest manufacturers of appliances, and a consumer product for a leading global supermarket chain. 

“Building on these recent successes, we’re able to spark ideas for new products, and better collaborate with our customers to help turn those ideas into reality,” said Holger Kronimus, VP Europe and general manager, Specialty Engineered Materials, Europe for PolyOne.  

Proven solutions on display at PolyOne include:

  • Therma-Tech™ Thermally Conductive Materials: Engineered materials that are lighter than metal and are easier to form, but do not compromise conductivity
  • Gravi-Tech™ Density Modified Polymers: Composite materials that provide the look, feel and sound of metal, but deliver the design freedom of a polymer
  • LubriOne™ Wear Resistant Solutions: Inherently lubricated polymers that eliminate the need for added oils and greases between moving components 
  • OnFlex™ LO Low VOC Thermoplastic Elastomers: Easily processed TPEs that help manufacturers meet strict Vehicle Interior Air Quality (VIAQ) standards 

Additionally, the Fakuma event will be the first in Europe at which PolyOne will showcase its recently acquired Comptek™ High Temperature Polymer Formulations and Concentrates portfolio.

Visitors at Fakuma can learn more by visiting PolyOne in Hall B5, Stand 5316. The trade show in Friedrichshafen, Germany runs from October 17-21, 2017.
