For the first time in 5 years, Avient is participating in PlastIndia 2023, where it exhibits its latest innovations and initiatives of sustainable and specialised material solutions for the plastics industry. This includes lower-carbon alternatives to thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) without sacrificing performance, portfolio expansions including bio-renewable feedstock and post-industrial or post-consumer recycled (PCR) content, and new materials and services focused on meeting specific customer needs while helping to advance a circular economy.
At PlastIndia 2023, Avient is showcasing its latest technologies, including:
ColorMatrix™ FlexOne™ Liquid Metering System: A smaller & smarter single equipment system featuring new technology for liquid metering, developed with sustainability in mind for a range of applications. The efficiency-enhancing features ensure continuous and consistent delivery of liquid colorants and additives, reducing overall waste. The user-friendly control screens and access to global remote technical services also enable faster remote diagnostics, response, data acquisition, and inventory management.
Maxxam™ REC, Maxxam™ BIO, and Nymax™ BIO grades: An expanded portfolio of recycled and bio-based polyolefin and polyamide formulations now manufactured in Europe. These grades can offer a more sustainable alternative to traditional grades while still achieving performance requirements in many applications and industries, including transportation, industrial, consumer, electrical and electronic, and building and construction.
reSound™ Ultra-Low Carbon Footprint TPEs: These TPE formulations offer an industry-first cradle-to-gate negative, neutral, or near-zero product carbon footprint (PCF) while delivering comparable performance to traditional TPEs.
In addition, Avient is excited to share that its facility in India recently reached two tremendous milestones. First, the Pune production site achieved GMP Certification in 2022 and became the first specialty formulator of polymer materials in India to become certified with an ISO 22000 Food Safety Management System. These accreditations help identify Avient as a leader in India's growing food packaging and healthcare markets by demonstrating that its materials and technologies meet distinctive quality standards in this region. Second, Avient opened its new state-of-the-art Innovative Solutions Holistic Accelerator (ISHA) research facility in Pune on January 5, 2023. Once completed, the site will host a fully functional physical testing lab, a sophisticated analytical lab, a wet chemistry facility, and dedicated process capabilities, including multi-scale twin-screw extruders, reactive extrusion, and various injection molding machines.
“The center’s name, ISHA, also means ‘one who protects and creates’ in Sanskrit, which emphasizes Avient’s vision to become the leading creator of specialty sustainable materials and, in doing so, to help protect our planet,” said Vikas Vij, managing director at Avient India. “Innovation and sustainability are the lifeblood of our company. We are looking to increase our research & development globally and in India, and I have no doubt some of our next technological breakthroughs will happen at ISHA.”
At PlastIndia 2018, Avient exhibited under its former name, PolyOne. Since then, Avient has become better together by further expanding its growing composites portfolio with the addition of the globally admired brand of Dyneema®, the World's Strongest Fiber™. The ultra-lightweight specialty fibre is 15 times stronger than steel. It is used in demanding applications such as ballistic personal protection, marine and sustainable infrastructure, renewable energy, industrial protection, and outdoor sports.
Avient's booth is located at Hall 5/First Floor/Booth A5 at PlastIndia 2023 in Pragati Maidan, New Delhi, from February 1 to 5.
