SHENZHEN, China – April 7, 2021 – Avient Corporation, a premier provider of specialized and sustainable material solutions and services, will feature its portfolio of sustainable materials and colorant technologies next week at Chinaplas 2021. These new and existing materials, additives, and colorants help to reduce energy use, increase the use of recycled content, and improve recycled material performance for applications in the packaging, automotive, healthcare, telecommunications, and consumer electronics industries.

“From color modeling to the latest advances in materials science, Avient is unlocking the potential of sustainability in Asia and globally,” said Say-Eng Lee, vice president and general manager, Color & Additives Asia. “For example, our recently opened CycleWorks facility in Italy is providing cutting-edge support for the development of new and sustainable masterbatch formulations, many of which we will display at Chinaplas.”

Avient will exhibit the following sustainable solutions in Hall 16, Booth 16J41 at Chinaplas 2021:

•    HiFormer™ Liquid Polymer Processing Aid for cast and blown polyolefin film delivers significant performance improvements while reducing energy consumption and waste. It is FDA, EU food contact, RoHS, and REACH compliant.
•    Rejoin™ PCR Masterbatch for polyolefin packaging applications is made with post-consumer recycled (PCR) polyolefin as a carrier resin, enabling a bottle or part to be manufactured from 100 percent PCR.
•    Hydrocerol™  Chemical Foaming Agent helps to reduce automobile emissions by lowering energy consumption and improving energy efficiency while also remaining 100 percent recyclable.
•    Stat-Tech™ High Frequency Dielectric Solutions and PREPERM™ materials, semi-finished, and finished products (developed originally by Premix), help customers to meet customized Dk/Df values for 5G antennas and systems. This global portfolio offers faster design qualification and shorter lead times, as well as design flexibility.
