SHANGHAI, April 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- PolyOne Corporation (NYSE: POL), a premier global provider of specialized polymer materials, services and solutions, will showcase its latest innovations at Chinaplas 2014, one of the world's largest plastics industry exhibitions. New technologies to be displayed are the result of close collaboration with customers to help them reach new markets, achieve sustainability goals and improve profitability.

"Inspired by our customers, we are featuring advanced solutions that help solve the toughest issues in material selection, distribution, manufacturing, colorants and design at this important event," said Mark Crist, vice president of Asia and vice president of Global Key Accounts, PolyOne Corporation. "Our material science and formulation expertise enables customers to improve their performance and gain competitive advantage globally."

PolyOne technologies on display at Chinaplas will include:

Authentication and Anti-Counterfeiting Solutions: Percept™ Authentication Technologies present a full-spectrum portfolio of formulations and consultative services that employ covert, overt and forensic techniques. With these solutions, manufacturers can reduce potential risks and loss of revenue from counterfeits in consumer goods, medical devices, packaging, and consumer electronics markets.

Metal-to-Polymer Conversion for Electrical Applications: LubriOne™ PEEK Solutions for electrical power tool applications offer innovative options for replacing metal that also help customers to improve performance, reduce production cost and simplify product maintenance.

Differentiating with Color: InVisiOSM Color Inspiration 2015, a collection of six insightful color directions for designers, brands and marketing managers, adds dimension to trend indicators by capturing visual effects and textural influences as well.

Dual Light Barrier for Packaging: OnCap™ Light Shield additive effectively absorbs both ultraviolet (UV) and visible light from clear packages to protect light-sensitive substances, such as food and pharmaceuticals, from degradation. In addition, this specialty solution improves color stability and maintains polymer clarity.

Food-Safe TPE: Versaflex™ thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) enables consumer products manufacturers to replace a thermoplastic vulcanizate (TPV) silicone material with a softer, child-friendly TPE material, while maintaining strict compliance with food contact regulations in Japan and China.

Vinyl Engineered Performance: Geon™ Vinyl solutions are formulated to provide high flow for easier processing and can be customized in a wide range of bright and metallic-look colors. This material portfolio also delivers excellent flame, chemical, and UV light resistance, making it a cost-effective replacement for various engineered polymers and metal in applications such as laundry consoles, circuit board housings, medical equipment, and LED lighting.

Regarded as one of the most influential plastics exhibitions in the world, Chinaplas is held annually and has helped to accelerate the growth of plastics-intensive markets in Asia for the past 30 years.
