Wed, 3 Oct 2012 10:09:12 EST

FISCHBACH, Luxembourg – During the Fakuma 2012 trade fair this month, PolyOne Corporation (NYSE: POL), a premier global provider of specialized polymer materials, services and solutions, will showcase the ways in which its polymer formulation developments – coupled with expertise in design services – help OEMs replace metal with high-performance solutions that improve product performance and meet customer demands for sustainability.

'Our focus on helping customers redesign metal components in plastic is enabling them to continue to innovate and respond to market trends and regulations,' commented Holger Kronimus, vice president, Europe and general manager, Engineered Materials Europe, PolyOne Corporation. 'Leveraging our industry-leading polymer formulation and design expertise enables customers to achieve metal-to-plastic conversions swiftly and successfully.'

'In the automotive industry, we have improved our customers' manufacturing efficiency and sustainability using the latest polymer innovations and design support, including mold-filling simulations and part and mold design assistance. We see many opportunities to help our customers win with metal-replacement in other industries including appliances, electronics and electrical goods and a variety of industrial applications,' added Kronimus.
