PolyOne Expands Capacity for Metal Replacement Technologies
In response to growing customer demand for metal replacement, PolyOne Corporation is expanding capacity for its OnForce LFT long-fiber specialty thermoplastics. A new, dedicated specialty production line will be added at the company’s existing Avon Lake, Ohio production facility and will be fully operational by the end of February 2015.
PolyOne’s robust glass- and carbon fiber-filled formulations retain aesthetic appeal in metal replacement and structural applications, while also offering higher stiffness, impact strength and surface finish than short-fiber filled materials.
