India: Speciality Polymers Poly One Commences Production of Thermoplastic Elastomer
The move has been undertaken to provide the company’s Indian customers with a wider portfolio of locally produced materials.
Cleveland/USA – Poly One Corporation has recently announced that it expects to begin production of thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) this summer at its existing facility in Pune, India. The company currently produces colour and additive concentrates and engineered polymer solutions at the Pune facility. Adding TPE production enables the company to support customers in the country even more quickly and with a broader portfolio of domestically manufactured materials.
In 2014, Poly One inaugurated the new facility in Pune and initially focused on the production of colorant and additive concentrates to serve end markets such as transportation, electronics & electrical, healthcare, wire & cable, and packaging. The company expanded manufacturing capability to include specialty engineered materials last year. With the most recent addition of TPE production, the company enables manufacturers to source all of their specialty polymer requirements from a single domestic source.
