PolyOne recently announced that select "OnFlex" thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) are now being manufactured in North America, expanding production capabilities beyond facilities in Europe and Asia. The added production for "OnFlex" LO and "OnFlex" AF TPE grades offers improved lead times for automotive OEMs and molders in North America.|
"OnFlex" LO materials are used for a broad range of automotive applications, including HVAC seals and flaps. "OnFlex" AF meet diverse performance needs for interior and exterior automotive applications including trays, door pockets, fasteners, clips, roof rack pads, roof and door trim, and window encapsulations.
"Speed to market and production capacity go hand-in-hand toward meeting customer and market needs," said Jean-Paul Scheepens, general manager, Americas, Specialty Engineered Materials at PolyOne. "Performance of these particular 'OnFlex' grades enables automakers to innovate while complying with regulatory demands and sustainability concerns for vehicle interior air quality. With North American production, our regional customers will also benefit from improved lead times and potential cost savings."
