A. Schulman, Inc. supplies plastic compounds and resins. Product Families Globally, the company operates in six product families, such as custom performance colors (CPC), engineered composites, masterbatch solutions, engineered plastics, specialty powders, and distribution services. CPC CPC offers powdered, pelletized, and liquid color concentrates that are custom-designed to improve various thermoplastic resins. These concentrates are available separately, or could be combined with additives as a complete package providing additional functionality, such as weather resistance. The company's expansive offering of color solutions includes a spectrum of standard and customized colors; organic and inorganic pigments; high chroma colors in translucent or opaque formats; and special effects, including metallic, pearlescent (shimmer), thermochromatic (heat sensitive), photochromatic (light sensitive), fluorescent, phosphorescent (glow-in-the-dark), and interference (color shift) technologies. The company’s color business engages with customers at every stage of their product cycle, from color selection to product delivery and ongoing support. Color products are suitable for various processes, such as injection molding, blow molding, compression molding, profile extrusion, blown film, cast film, oriented film, rotational molding, sheet and thermoforming, among others. The company’s color concentrates excel in many of the same markets as its masterbatch solutions product family (food packaging, industrial packaging, consumer products, etc.) and its engineered plastics product family, which provides a platform for cross utilization of technology. Engineered Composites Engineered composites include compounds, such as thermoset bulk molding compounds, sheet molding compounds, thick molding compounds, and high performance composite solutions for multi-national original equipment manufacturers and custom molders that use these products in injection and compression molding processes. Additionally, engineered composites include vertically integrated molding and value-added post molding services. The company supplies engineered composites on a global basis through HGGC Citadel Plastic Holdings, Inc. (Citadel). Citadel is a specialty engineered plastics company that produces thermoset composites and thermoplastic compounds for specialty product applications. The thermoset composites business, or engineered composites, is unique to the company's legacy product families. Engineered composite products primarily serve customers in the mobility, industrial and construction, consumer, electrical, energy, and healthcare and safety industries. These materials are also used by customers seeking to make their products lighter, such as in emerging carbon fiber applications. The company supplies engineered composites products to its customers through its global network of manufacturing facilities, including an Innovation and Collaboration Center in Bay City, Michigan. Engineered composites products are utilized in a range of applications, such as automotive front lighting, circuit breakers, oil and gas downhole components, drain pans for HVAC units and trucks, as well as heavy machinery structural parts. Masterbatch Solutions Masterbatches (also referred to as concentrates) are often the key ingredient in an application product formula. These highly concentrated compounds are combined with polymer resins by the company’s customers at the point-of-process to provide a property portfolio that meets needed performance criteria for a given product application. The company supplies masterbatches through its application development center in Bornem, Belgium. The company's masterbatch solutions product offerings include concentrates designed to improve the performance, appearance, and processing of plastics for intended applications, such as white color, absorptive, anti-fog, anti-static and carbon black, among others; additive solutions to improve performance, including antibacterial, flame retardants, ultra-violet (UV), anti-static, barrier (optimal heat and light transmittance), antioxidants (protection of foods) and
