PolyOne Corp. has unveiled color and additive concentrates it says are ideal for wood-plastic composites used in decking, fencing, railing and other construction products.
OnColor WPC concentrates offer advantages, such as high loadings and small bead size that improve color distribution in extruded and molded composites. PolyOne of Avon Lake, Ohio, says colors and additives can be incorporated singly or in combinations in its OnColor-brand concentrates.
The company says the new products include CT-grade heat-absorbing and cool-to-the-touch colorants. Also included are OnCap additives for specific process or performance needs such as antimicrobial protection, and OnCall color-matching services.
The development work is supported by a biofiber and additives research center at PolyOne's Lehigh Valley, Pa., color laboratory.
