A. Schulman, Inc. supplies plastic compounds and resins for packaging, automotive, consumer products, and industrial applications. Product Families The company operates primarily in five product families: masterbatch solutions, engineered plastics, distribution services, specialty powders, and custom performance colors. The company offers tolling services to customers in all product families except for distribution services. Masterbatch Solutions Masterbatches (also referred to as concentrates) are often the key ingredient in a successful 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 material solution that meets needed performance criteria for a given product application. The company's masterbatch solutions product offerings include the following: Products designed to improve the performance, appearance, and processing of plastics for intended applications such as carbon black and white color concentrates, absorptive concentrates that reduce odors, and anti-static concentrates, among others; Additive solutions to enhance performance, such as antibacterial, ultra-violet (UV), anti-static, barrier (optimal heat and light transmittance), antioxidants (protection of foods) and 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’s film additives for food packaging are commonly used in biaxially oriented films which are critical for protective packaging of shelf ready foods, snack foods, 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. Engineered Plastics Engineered plastics provide unique performance characteristics by combining high-performance 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 specialty polymeric materials. The company offers polyolefins, nylons, polyesters, elastomers, ionomers, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) and highly customized cross-linked resins. The company’s engineered plastics product family supplies various markets and applications. Consumer products and industrial applications are main markets in durable goods. The company also supplies materials for major, high-end, or specified automotive applications, working closely with major global manufacturers. Distribution Services As a distributor, the company works with global polymer producers to assist in servicing market segments that are not easily accessible to these producers, or does not fit into these producers' core customer segment or supply chain. The company’s distribution services offerings include specialty polymers for all processing types, including injection molding, blow molding, thermoforming and film and sheet extruding. Offering various compliant grades, the company has products that meet the needs. Most grades can be supplied in carton, bulk truck and rail car quantities, thus helping customers manage inventory levels and their working capital. The company’s products are supplied into every major plastics market segment such as packaging, mobility, building and construction, electronics and electrical, and agriculture. Specialty Powders Specialty powders include size reduction and resins for the injection, blow molding and rotational molding markets. The majority of the company’s size reduction services involve 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
