Two recent announcements from PolyOne Corp., Avon Lake, Ohio, affirmed its renewed commitment to specialty PVC resins and unveiled an expansion for compounding engineering thermoplastics and TPEs. In December, PolyOne decided to keep its specialty vinyls, which had been for sale. It is now a separate group called Geon Specialty Resins, which is North America’s largest maker of dispersion resins and also produces blending, powder coating, and specialized suspension PVCs. PolyOne also added a 100,000-sq-ft Engineered Materials compounding plant in Avon Lake, which will start up in the second quarter. It will house six compounding lines with room for six more. Dedicated lines will make FDA-compliant and conductive compounds.
