Dedicated to a variety of demanding applications in transportation (automotive), building and construction, and industrial markets, OnFlex™ thermoplastic elastomers are formulated for durability. With excellent mechanical properties, these TPEs offer UV resistance, low compression set, flame retardance, and weatherability. Built to last, they withstand chemicals, high temperatures, and abrasion over time. Notably, grades specified for automotive interiors meet Vehicle Interior Air Quality (VIAQ) standards with their low VOC / FOG and odor properties.
Sometimes, simpler is smarter. Smartbatch™ concentrates combine the brilliance of custom colors with the functionality of our performance-enhancing additives in a single formulation. Our color formulation skills are unparalleled, and our additive solutions can improve your process, or enhance the quality of your parts. We can also formulate a concentrate that does both.
Smartbatch color and additive concentrates are easy to use, practical and extremely cost-effective. A single formulation can make a huge difference in the quality of your products and also improve the efficiency of your manufacturing process. Contact PolyOne today to learn more about Smartbatch color and additive solutions, and together we will select the right choice for your applications.
Highlights Smartbatch™ is a combination of color with a functional performance-enhancing or processing additive, in one solution. These specific combinations incorporate our wide range of colors - both from stock and custom formulations - and additives. Functional performance and processing improvement capabilities of Smartbatch additive concentrates include:
Sitting atop the plastics pyramid, high temperature formulations provide robust material performance at elevated temperatures in excess of 300°F (150°C).
At PolyOne, we collaborate with both designers and manufacturers to optimize their use of these engineered polymers. Our focus is on the development of targeted high temperature formulations and colorant and additive packages you need to ensure your products perform as expected.
Our experience includes developing color and additive concentrates for PEEK, PEI, PES, PSU and PPSU resins. We also provide know how to improve functionality with additions such as laser marking additives, conductive materials, radiation cross-linkable solutions, glass fiber and other reinforcing materials, infrared filtering, and more.
