PolyOne Delivers Packaging Technologies That Make a Difference at PACK EXPO 2016

November 4, 2016

CLEVELAND – PolyOne brings its breadth of technologies and materials expertise to this year’s PACK EXPO International, North America’s largest annual packaging exhibition, next week in Chicago.

“We're enabling designers to re-imagine packaging with our versatile portfolio of polymers, colorants and services,” said Cathy Dodd, vice president, marketing at PolyOne. “Our design competencies, deep material knowledge and custom color and finish capabilities combine to make packaging that’s functional, ergonomic and striking.”

Diverse technologies and solutions for packaging on display include:

Surface Enhancement: IM3D technology, developed in collaboration with Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, enables manufacturers to create the appearance of depth and dimension on caps and closures in a single step during the injection molding process.

Release Additives: OnCap™ DeNesting additive dramatically improves denesting performance in thermoformed packaging applications, allowing for easier handling and separation during production and in use without affecting package quality.

Rollstock & Thermoformed Containers: Custom designed or stock thermoformed solutions – PreservaPak™ high-barrier technologies preserve product freshness and extend shelf life for packaged foods; Valiant™ high performance rollstock meets exacting requirements for healthcare product packaging; Duragard™ materials are designed for personal care, household and electronics packaging. 

Soft-Touch TPEs: GLS™ TPE polymers give packaging the differentiation and recyclability the market is asking for, with the confidence that a global supplier can bring.

Authentication Technology: Percept™ additive solutions protect brand equity and defend against counterfeiting.

Liquid Color Dispersions: ColorMatrix™ concentrates and additives improve package aesthetics, sustainability, performance and processing.

Color & Design Services: InVisiO™ services and solutions help accelerate and streamline the product development process.
