DÜSSELDORF, Germany – April 8, 2024 – Avient Corporation, a premier provider of specialized and sustainable materials solutions and services, will showcase its range of specialty solutions for wire and cable applications next week at Wire Düsseldorf, the world's leading trade fair for the wire and cable industry, held from April 15-19.  

Avient will highlight its broad portfolio of colorants, functional additives, engineered polymers, fibers and yarns, and high-temperature colorants and formulations developed specifically for the wire and cable industry. Experts will be available to provide in-depth guidance and support on addressing critical challenges, such as improving cable performance, optimizing processing and manufacturing, meeting regulatory requirements, extending cable lifetime, and driving greater sustainability.  

Avient’s recent launch of its TÜV Rheinland-Certified Product Carbon Footprint (PCF) Calculator is just one example of its commitment to sustainability. This cutting-edge tool can help customers evaluate the carbon footprint of Avient’s specialized and sustainable material solutions, understand the environmental impact of end products, and navigate the complex landscape of reducing carbon emissions.  

Other highlights from Avient at the show include:

Engineered Polymers:

  • ECCOH™ Low Smoke, Fume, Non-Halogen Formulations (LSFOH) are excellent for jacketing and insulation in various cable types, including energy, optical fiber, and communication cables
  • Syncure™ XLPE Cross-linkable Polyethylene Formulations and ECCOH™ XL Cross-Linkable Solutions, both of which can enhance traditional LSOFH materials to provide additional requirements such as oil resistance, chemical resistance, and improved mechanical performance or service temperature of the cables  

Colorants and Additives:  

  • OnColor™ Colorants for Wire and Cable offer a wide range of polymer-specific specialty colorant and additives systems for the wire and cable industry
  • Additives including Cesa™ Nox A4R polyolefin antioxidant technology and Cesa™ Unify™ A4R polyolefin compatibilizer, both of which can enhance recycling and enable greater use of recycled materials to support a more circular economy  

High-Temperature Pre-Colored, Color Concentrate and Formulated Solutions: 

  • Colorant Chromatics™ is a market leader in coloring fluoropolymers and high-temperature polymers, with formulations that can provide robust material performance and ultra-high-heat resistance without compromising safety, extending the product shelf life in cables in demanding industries such as aerospace, oil and gas, telecommunication, and building and construction  
  • Additional featured solutions include Colorant Chromatics™ UV Laser Marking Additives, Colorant Chromatics™ Conductive Formulations, Colorant Chromatics™ ECTFE / ETFE Colorants, and PEEK and PEI-Siloxane (SILTEM™ resin*) Colorants & Pre-colored Solutions

Engineered Fibers and Yarns:

  • Fiber-Line™ Engineered Fiber Solutions are high-performing synthetic fibers that can be color-coated, add strength, reduce cable weight or diameter, replace metal in the most demanding wire and cable applications, provide water-blocking capability in dry cable applications, and are developed for optimal rip performance in cable jacketing and armor  

Avient is exhibiting at Wire Düsseldorf 2024 from April 15-19 in hall 9, booth B50, at the Messe Düsseldorf trade fair ground in Germany.
