Product Families The company operates in six product families worldwide, 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 all 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 but not limited to, metallic, pearlescent (shimmer), thermochromatic (heat sensitive), photochromatic (light sensitive), fluorescent, phosphorescent (glow-in-the-dark) and interference (color shift) technologies. The company expands color concentrates through its European acquisition of Deltaplast. The company expands its global network of CPC capabilities through acquisitions and strategic investment in key markets. CPC provides customers with a solution-based approach driven by technical understanding, responsive service, and consistent quality to address evolving market needs. 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 an excellent platform for cross utilization of technology. They are a source for many of the world’s major consumer products companies, providing aesthetic solutions for a range of bottles, containers, caps and closures providing a consistent brand identity for them. Engineered Composites Engineered Composites are consisted of highly filled compounds, which include thermoset bulk molding compounds (BMC), sheet molding compounds, thick molding compounds, and ‘Quantum’ engineered structural composites 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 first began supplying Engineered Composites on a global basis through its acquisition of HGGC Citadel Plastics Holdings, Inc. (Citadel) in 2015. Engineered Composites products primarily serve customers in the mobility, industrial, building and construction, sports and leisure, consumer, electrical, energy and safety industries where their high strength-to-weight ratio, dimensional stability, chemical resistance and high temperature performance is required. Engineered Composites product offering also include carbon fiber compounds; chopped and continuous ‘Forged Preg’ materials used by customers seeking to make their products lighter and stronger, such as in automotive and aerospace. Additional features of the company’s Engineered Composites products include qualities, such as thermal and electrical conductivity, impact resistance, corrosion resistance and design flexibility. The company supplies Engineered Composites products to its customers through its global
