processing (foaming agents, slip, process aids, release agents, and anti-blocking) properties; and application solutions that have a reduced impact on the environment, such as those that minimize the use of plastics or incorporate the use of either recycled plastics or renewable-based polymers. The company offers films for agricultural and packaging applications. Its film additives for food packaging are used in biaxially oriented films and biaxially oriented polyethylene terephthalate, which are critical for protective packaging of shelf ready foods, snack foods, and candy, as well as various consumer products and industrial applications. The company also provides solutions for agriculture films, offering additives that provide UV control, barrier, and anti-fog solutions among others which increases yields and reduces waste. Engineered Plastics Engineered plastics provides performance characteristics by combining polymer resins with various modifiers, reinforcements, additives, and pigments, which result in a compound tailored to meet stringent customer specifications for durable applications. The company’s products are often developed to replace metal or other traditional materials. The company’s engineered plastics products typically comprise 100% of the plastics material used by its customers in their end products. The company offers a portfolio based on various polymers within the engineered plastics product family, allowing customers to tailor solutions that meet their exact performance needs. The company focuses on the ability to develop enhanced polymer solutions that provide structural integrity, such as strength, stiffness, low distortion, among others; multi-component blends that include polyolefins, nylons, polyesters and elastomers, among others; and formulating know-how with fiber reinforcements, such as glass and carbon, nano-reinforcements, flame retardants, impact modifiers, and UV stabilization. The engineered plastics product family uses the company's innovation centers to drive technology and innovation. These centers are highly focused on developing niche solutions that meet the needs of existing and developing markets. The company’s engineered plastics product family supplies various markets and applications. Durable consumer products and industrial applications are core markets where continued growth is planned, including such applications as building and construction materials, household appliances, electrical connectors, power tools, recreational items, and lawn and garden equipment. The company also supplies materials for specified automotive applications, working closely with major global manufacturers. Specialty Powders Specialty powders includes size reduction and resins for the injection, blow molding and rotational molding markets. Size reduction, or grinding, is a major component of the company’s specialty powders product family and is a specialized process whereby polymer resins produced by chemical manufacturers in pellet form are reduced to a specified powder size and form, depending on the customer’s specifications. The majority of the company’s size reduction services involve ambient grinding, a mechanical attrition milling process suitable for products which do not require ultrafine particle size and are not highly heat sensitive. The company also provides jet milling services used for products requiring very fine particle size, such as additives for printing ink, adhesives, waxes and cosmetics. For materials with specific thermal characteristics (such as heat sensitive materials) or which are soft and difficult to manage, the company provides cryogenic milling services, which use liquid nitrogen to chill materials to low temperatures to enable grinding and classification. The company supplies customers in the rotational molding market, while utilizing its compounding expertise and global footprint to add value in specialty powders (which includes custom size reduction service applications, such as powder coatings, oil field services, cosmetic applications and additive manufacturing/3D printing).
