Geon™ Injection Molding

These formulations are versatile enough to meet customer specifications, while delivering proven performance and value. Whether you need an interior, transparent or exterior compound, you’re likely to find what you need with Geon™ Injection Molding rigid vinyl. Industries served include appliance, building and construction, and electrical and electronic. 

HIGHLIGHTS

Geon Injection Molding rigid vinyl formulations are ideal for:

  • Indoor applications requiring UV stability and impact resistance. These formulations are commonly used in applications requiring fire resistance, such as appliance components, and electrical and electronics.
  • Transparent applications that require fire, chemical and impact resistance. These formulations are ideal as a replacement for costly glass, polycarbonate or acrylic in applications such as battery jars, soap and tissue dispensers, and refrigerator crisper trays.
  • Exterior applications requiring UV stability and durability in extreme weather conditions with good color and impact retention over time. They require less maintenance than wood or metal.
