PolyOne Corp. (Cleveland, Ohio, USA) has developed a series of solutions for natural fibers designed to expand processing and material options for the composites market. The portfolio, an addition to the Smartbatch WPC (wood-plastic composites) family of masterbatch colorants and additives, has been formulated for compatibility with most natural fibers as well as post-consumer recycled natural fibers including rice hulls, cardboard and cellulosic materials. OnColor WPC colorants and additives include fade-resistant, “cooler-to-the-touch” low-heat absorption colorants in highly loaded, small-bead geometry that improve the distribution of color during extrusion and molding operations. In addition, the company also offers a line of “streaker” technology products that mimic the aesthetic appearance of tropical hardwoods in WPC formulations.
