2018 Ohio Region Meeting

PolyOne Tour

From the simple feel of a toothbrush, to the protective casing on an X-ray machine, plastics play an important role in our daily lives.
They help us…Move faster. Work smarter. Feel better. Be greener. And have more fun.
At PolyOne, we understand plastics. From chemistry…to color…across the full spectrum of what’s possible. But more importantly, we understand people, and how plastics impact their lives through:

  • expertise in polymer science and part design
  • insights into color trends and ergonomics
  • focus on sound environmental stewardship

We’re helping companies create exciting new products that improve their customers’ quality of life
and the world we all value and enjoy every day.  Our collaborations help to create:

  • Lighter-weight cars that will take you farther
  • Medical devices that patients can use at home
  • Technology that helps LED lights run cooler and last longer
  • Smarter shoes that adapt to the runner

At PolyOne, we’re redesigning what’s possible.  Learn more at
