MOSCOW (MRC) -- PolyOne has unveied new bold color and extrusion options within the reSound Natural Fiber Reinforced Composites portfolio, said the producer on its site.
"While the automotive industry has responded well to reSound NF, which was introduced earlier this year, we have seen significant interest in these strong, lightweight solutions from manufacturers in consumer and other industries," said Holger Kronimus, VP Europe and general manager, PolyOne Specialty Engineered Materials. "The new color and extrusion options have been developed to offer non-automotive customers the flexibility and aesthetics they need while maintaining performance and ease of processing."
New reSound NF color options include beige, copper, terra cotta, green, blue and black hues. These colors were developed in collaboration with PolyOne’s InVisiOSM Color Inspirations 2016 color collections.
In addition to these creative hues, reSound NF is now available in formulations that have been tested and proven for profile extrusion, expanding its use to potential extrusion applications in building and construction, sports and leisure, and furniture manufacturing.
As MRC informed earlier, in 2014, PolyOne Corporation announced the addition of new capabilities to its OnColor HC Plus portfolio. These expanded offerings add medical-grade LDPE, nylon, PEBA, PS and PVC to the globally available palette of specialty healthcare colorants, and are pre-certified to meet or exceed biocompatibility requirements for ISO 10993 and/or USP Class VI protocols.
PolyOne Corporation, with 2014 revenues of USD3.8 billion, is a global provider of specialized polymer materials, services, and solutions with operations in specialty polymer formulations, color and additive systems, polymer distribution and specialty vinyl resins.
