In addition, PolyOne will be hosting a series of technical seminars on metal-to-polymer conversion, along with technical forums that highlight innovative use of liquid colorants. Scheduled topics include polymer alternatives to metal in heat management, electro-static discharge, and high stiffness / strength applications, as well as solutions that achieve the density, appearance and feel of metal.

PolyOne experts will also present at several key events during K 2013:
