Avient Corporation today announced it will launch the new ColorMatrix™ FlexOne™ system for liquid metering at the upcoming K 2022. This innovative equipment technology is a single unit, developed for a range of applications with sustainability in mind.

The ColorMatrix FlexOne system incorporates efficiency-enhancing features including an integrated pump with a gravimetric liquid metering system along with an automated and self-correcting calibration capability. These high-accuracy technologies ensure continuous and consistent delivery of liquid color & additives, reducing overall waste. It also uses the patented PlanetPak™ packaging and delivery system. The box and inner liner are recyclable and compact, making it efficient to transport, handle, store and dispose of easily. Customers can expect to achieve a 99%+ yield of liquid contents from a PlanetPak container.

Avient Adds Recycled and Bio-Based Polyolefin Formulations to its Sustainability Porfolio for K 2022
Avient erweitert sein auf der K 2022 präsentierte Portfolio um recyclat- und biobasierte Polyolefinformulierungen

Avient Corporation, a premier provider of specialized and sustainable material solutions and services, is introducing new recycled and bio-based polyolefin formulations at the upcoming K 2022, further extending its sustainability portfolio in Europe.

Maxxam™ REC recycled polyolefins are formulated with 25-100% recycled resin from post-industrial recycled (PIR) and post-consumer recycled (PCR) sources. Maxxam™ BIO bio-based polyolefins are formulated with 15-100% bio-based resin and/or natural filler from renewable plant sources. Both solutions offer a more sustainable alternative to traditional polyolefin grades while achieving comparable performance.

Avient Shares Customer Success for Healthcare High-Temperature, Pre-Colored Solutions at K 2022
Avient präsentiert auf der K 2022 den Kundenerfolg mit vorgefärbten Hochtemperaturlösungen für die Medizintechnik

At the upcoming K 2022, Avient will feature a recent successful collaboration with a global customer and manufacturer of medical devices. To support the customer’s desire to create an improved medical instrument that is bio-compatible without compromising safety, chemical resistance, or color, Avient provided pre-colored solutions using the newly launched Colorant Chromatics™ Transcend™ Premier Healthcare Colorants.

Demand is growing for vivid colors that help healthcare products and tools stand out to medical professionals during their daily work and create a friendly environment for patients. However, medical devices and instruments are frequently exposed to harsh temperatures and chemicals for cleaning and disinfecting, which can diminish safety and color. 

Avient Joint Study with Borealis Reveals Wide Range of Color Options for Recycled Plastics
Avient und Borealis identifizieren in einer Gemeinschaftstudie eine Vielzahl von Farboptionen für recycelte Kunststoffe

Avient and Borealis today announced the results of a new joint study for the upcoming K 2022 Trade Fair. The study addresses the challenges of color matching in PCR for rigid packaging, offering options that can create global color consistency, quality, and circularity. 

In 2018, Borealis launched EverMinds™, an umbrella platform uniting its activities and initiatives aimed at advancing action on circularity. Bridging from the EverMinds™ platform, Borealis and Avient recently completed a joint application study investigating how to optimize color matching when using post-consumer recycled material (PCR) in rigid packaging applications. Insights obtained from the joint study will help value chain partners and customers take advantage of the wide range of color options that can be enabled by the use of Borcycle™ M compounds (mechanically recycled polyolefins) from Borealis and color solutions from Avient for even the most sophisticated application requirements.

Avient Announces Industry-First Carbon Negative and Carbon Neutral Thermoplastic Elastomers
Avient stellt branchenweit erste kohlenstoffnegative und kohlenstoffneutrale thermoplastische Elastomere vor

Avient Corporation, a premier provider of specialized and sustainable material solutions and services, today announced its new reSound™ Ultra-Low Carbon Footprint TPEs that can achieve a negative, neutral, or near-zero product carbon footprint (PCF).

These TPE formulations offer an industry-first cradle-to-gate PCF range between negative 0.46 and 0.0 CO₂ equivalent kg/kg product while delivering comparable performance to traditional TPEs. The cradle-to-gate portion of the product life cycle refers to the carbon impact of a product from raw materials and product manufacturing. Avient follows the ISO 14067:2018 standard to calculate PCF values and utilizes global formulation expertise, green manufacturing processes, and sourcing & logistics competence to achieve such low or negative values.
