PolyOne Corporation, a provider of specialised polymer materials, services and solutions, is continuously improving upon its fibre colourant technology, to make it more advance and enable textile manufacturers, converters and brands increase sustainability, operational efficiencies, and market response rates to drive success in the global textile industry.

PolyOne's ColourMatrix Fibre Colourant Solutions combine colourants and specialised melt spinning equipment to provide an adaptive, innovative system for colouring polyester fibre. Together, this allows textile manufacturers to increase production speeds, flexibility, and process control. It also eliminates the need for water and wastewater treatment, up to 10 litres per kilogram of fibre, commonly required with aqueous dyeing processes.

"Our technology not only improves sustainability, it fosters rapid, on-site design and scale up, enabling economically viable smaller lot sizes and improving production flexibility overall," said Mark Crist, president, Colour, Additives and Inks at PolyOne. "We've enabled a transformation in the way that upholstered fabrics, footwear, apparel, safety straps, industrial fabric, and more can be manufactured."

Recent commercial projects for this technology include textiles for high performance sports apparel, automobiles, home furnishings, and carpeting.

"The textile industry is at the forefront of adopting sustainable solutions across its entire supply chain," said Robert M Patterson, chairman, president and CEO, PolyOne Corporation. "Our advanced fibre colourant technology is critical to helping these manufacturers address sustainability, production flexibility, and speed-to-market goals to stay on top of these trends."

At its upcoming Investor Day on May 10, PolyOne plans to present additional details about fibre colourant innovation as one of several high-growth technology platforms that underpin the company's expectation of delivering double digit EPS growth in 2018 and beyond. (SV)
