PolyOne Unveils Specialty Polymers and Colorants at Fakuma 2018

October 11, 2018

CLEVELAND – October 11, 2018 – During the 2018 Fakuma show next week in Friedrichshafen, Germany, PolyOne will give visitors an exclusive first look at this new addition to its specialty colorants lineup:

OnColor™ Colorants Shades of Nature Collection includes ten new special effects colorants inspired by nature. Available in masterbatch form, the colorants have been created to include materials such as almond shells, glitter flakes, fibers and other special effects. They can be customized for various polymers, and enable unique artisanal looks in plastic. Shades of Nature colors are also a cost-effective replacement option for marble, granite, and other expensive, organic materials currently popular in consumer product designs.

Further proven solutions also on display at Fakuma will include:

  • Gravi-Tech Density Modified Polymers: Composite materials that provide the look, feel and sound of metal, but deliver the design freedom of a polymer
  • OnFlex LO Low VOC / FOG & Odor TPEs: Engineered thermoplastic elastomers that help meet Vehicle Interior Air Quality (VIAQ) standards for automotive interior components including HVAC flaps, interior trays and fasteners and clips

Visitors at Fakuma can learn more by visiting PolyOne in Hall B5, Stand 5316. The trade show runs from October 16 - 20, 2018.
