Advanced Innovation Made Possible with Sustainable FR Solutions from PolyOne

PolyOne is featuring its extensive collection of high-performance and flame-resistant polymers, colorants and additives at Wire China 2018 this week. With a focus on safety and eco-conscious composition, these materials can help manufacturers in meeting their sustainability goals.

Ranging from non-halogen, low smoke, and high temperature thermoplastics to inherently flame-resistant vinyl and specialty colorants and additives, the PolyOne portfolio is designed to comply with diverse global regulatory specifications for safety and performance.

“Our wire and cable customers are always looking for innovative materials that can help them stay competitive and sustainable, and we’re continuously developing solutions that meet those needs. These formulations enable manufacturers to meet regulatory and performance targets while also reducing costs for changeover, downtime, and inventory,” said Barto Du Plessis, vice president, Asia for PolyOne.
