Polymera Brings 60 Million Pound WPC Compounding Facility On-LineJanuary 13th, 2012 by DWM Magazine
Polymera Inc. in Hebron, Ohio, announced it has added 60 million pounds of WPC compound capacity at its central Ohio facility. The 160,000-square-foot manufacturing facility houses a fully automated manufacturing system for wood/natural fiber polymer composite compounds.
“Polymera is addressing a need for WPC compound that simply has not been available in the industry, until now,” says Polymera’s vice president, Herb Hutchison. “Our objective is to help extrusion, injection and compression molding companies that would like to enter the WPC market but cannot justify the very large investment in upstream blending and material handling systems.
