A. Schulman, Inc. supplies plastic compounds and resins. Product Families Globally, the company operates in five product families, such as custom performance colors (CPC), masterbatch solutions, engineered plastics, specialty powders, and distribution services. The company offers tolling services to customers primarily in the specialty powders product family. The company's customers span a range of markets, such as packaging, mobility, building and construction, electronics and electrical, agriculture, personal care and hygiene, custom services, and sports, home and leisure. CPC CPC offers powdered or pelletized color concentrates custom-designed to enhance all thermoplastic resins. These concentrates are available separately, or can 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 metallic, pearlescent (shimmer), thermochromatic (heat sensitive), photochromatic (light sensitive), fluorescent, phosphorescent (glow-in-the-dark), and interference (color shift) technologies. 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 a platform for cross utilization of technology. Masterbatch Solutions Masterbatches (also referred to as concentrates) are often the key ingredient in an 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 property portfolio that meets needed performance criteria for a given product application. The company supplies masterbatches through its application development center in Bornem, Belgium. The company's masterbatch solutions product offerings include concentrates designed to improve the performance, appearance, and processing of plastics for intended applications, such as white color, absorptive, anti-fog, anti-static and carbon black, among others; additive solutions to enhance performance, such as antibacterial, flame retardants, 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 provides solutions for agriculture films, offering additives that provide UV control, barrier, and anti-fog solutions among others. The company advances its additive technologies to support its customer development of more sustainable solutions from packaging to durable goods. Engineered Plastics The company’s products are often developed to replace metal or other traditional materials. Its 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
