CLEVELAND – Builders and homeowners know that faded colors on fencing, decks and windows can spoil curb appeal and decrease property values. In response, PolyOne Corporation (NYSE: POL) has developed new Geon™ Bold vinyl materials with dark, rich colors that stand up to the elements, especially heat build up, without losing their vibrancy or performance.
“Consumers, designers and architects are increasingly designing stylish outdoor living spaces and home exteriors that demand durability and require low maintenance. At the same time, manufacturers want to expand their color palettes while maintaining high weatherability performance,” explained Michael Garratt, president, Performance Products and Solutions, PolyOne Corporation. “To address these unmet needs, PolyOne developed Geon Bold vinyl solutions that deliver the preferred variety of color choices and the enduring performance that consumers demand.”
“This is a great example of collaboration in action as PolyOne is able to leverage our in-house color expertise as a way to enhance formulated solutions for vinyl applications,” said Robert M. Patterson, president and chief executive officer, PolyOne Corporation. “Collaboration is one of our core values, and we continually strive to bring integrated solutions to our customers, helping them succeed.”
Applications that are commercialized, or in development, include capstock and cladding for window and door lineals, decking railings, fencing, roofing and siding. These new materials are available in a range of gloss levels and across a spectrum of use temperatures.
