In addition to Geon Cellular Vinyl, PolyOne will be showcasing several other technologies at the Expo, including:

Geonä Bold Alloys: formulated for exceptional weathering performance and color hold for dark outdoor building applications

Geona Cellular Vinyl for trim and molding applications

Plenstarä Vinyl Grades: designed for plenum applications and engineered to meet performance needs for telecommunication cables

Geonä CPVC: combines inherent flame resistance and chemical resistance with elevated temperature performance for many industrial applications

PolyOne will exhibit in booth 425 at Plastics Extrusion World Expo (Cleveland, OH), May 8-9. Additionally, Kristin Meyers, Geon senior industry manager for PolyOne, will be presenting ‘Solutions in Dark Color Outdoor Architectural Applications’ on May 8 in the Pipe & Profile Theater at the event.
