PolyOne Corporation, a leading global provider of specialized polymer materials, services and solutions, has formed a global platform and team for its Low Smoke and Fume, Zero Halogen (LSFOH) compounds.
PolyOne's LSFOH global team is focused on ECCOH™ LSFOH compounds for flame-retardant applications. Providing sales and technical support in Europe, Asia and USA, ECCOH compounds are available globally.
PolyOne's focus in this product area is prompted by a marked increase in the number of regulatory guidelines calling for the use of halogen-free, flame-retardant products. In addition, in many industries, low smoke and low toxicity are also required. ECCOH™ compounds are used in applications where toxicity of smoke is of particular concern such as spaces where means of escape may be restricted such as hotels, large office blocks, off-shore installations, trains, metros, and ships.
PolyOne's global LSFOH team, with both local and deployed personnel, is responsible for
" Coordinating product and technical requirements
" Supporting global and regional end users
" Directing consistent global product quality service and support.
"As a global team, we share our regional experiences and knowledge of industry developments to deliver new products that meet both local and global regulatory guidelines and performance requirements", says Murielle Chuzeville, general manager, LSFOH global. "Our global and regional customers will gain from the same high level of service and products available worldwide. This coordinated team effort will enable us to better understand the needs of our customers, stay abreast of regulatory trends, and improve our services, solutions and product offering."
