PolyOne Showcases Its Expanding Portfolio of Long Fiber Thermoplastics at CHINAPLAS 2019

May 20, 2019

GUANGZHOU, China – May 21, 2019 – PolyOne is highlighting its expanding long fiber thermoplastic portfolio at CHINAPLAS 2019 this week, including Surround™ EMI/RFI Shielding formulations and Complēt™ LFT formulations. Both of these advanced long-fiber technologies are now commercially available in Asia.

“Our customers are looking for sustainable thermoplastic composite materials that are tougher, stronger, and lighter to accelerate their products from concept to production,” said Flight Xu, general manager, Specialty Engineered Materials Asia for PolyOne. “Our long fiber thermoplastics can be tailored to meet performance and design specifications, and together with our technical support, we’re able to help customers with a complete solution that captures market share and meets their sustainability goals.”

PolyOne will present its wide-ranging portfolio, with emphasis on its newest additions:

  • Surround EMI/RFI Shielding Formulations are electrically conductive solutions, providing EMI/RFI shielding at a lower weight compared with aluminum, copper and other metals. The long fiber formulations are easy to process and provide more design freedom through injection molding without compromising on dimensional stability of the component during use.
  • Complēt LFT formulations are stronger, tougher and lighter solutions engineered to meet highly demanding performance and design requirements. Formulations are available with glass, carbon or specialty fiber reinforcements, including glass/carbon hybrids, in engineering polymers ranging from polypropylene to PEEK.

PolyOne is showcasing long fiber thermoplastic technologies at its CMF Inspiration Wall (across from Hall 10.3 Entrance, Zone B) at CHINAPLAS 2019 from May 21-24.
