During the 2018 Fakuma show next week in Friedrichshafen, Germany, PolyOne will inform visitors about its new OnFlex LO Low VOC / FOG and odor TPEs. This series of thermoplastic elastomers help meet Vehicle Interior Air Quality (VIAQ) standards for automotive interior components. They are well suited for the production of HVAC flaps, interior trays and fasteners and clips, etc.
Furthermore PolyOne announced to give visitors an exclusive first look at this new addition to its specialty colorants lineup: The 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, fibres and other special effects. They can be customized for various polymers, and enable unique artisanal looks in plastic. Shades of Nature colours are also a cost-effective replacement option for marble, granite, and other expensive, organic materials currently popular in consumer product designs.
Further material solutions on display at Fakuma will include Gravi-Tech Density Modified Polymers. These composite materials provide the look, feel and sound of metal, but deliver the design freedom of a polymer.
