US’ Avient to present composite solutions at JEC World 2024


  • Avient Corporation will showcase its composite solutions, featuring new ballistic-resistant panels, at JEC World in Paris from March 5.
  • Avient’s portfolio includes advanced materials for diverse industries, emphasising sustainability through lightweight alternatives, recycled-content composites, and support for circular economy initiatives.

Avient Corporation, a premier provider of specialised and sustainable materials solutions and services, has announced that it will highlight its breadth of composite solutions, including new ballistic-resistant panels, at JEC World which will begin from March 5 in Paris.

Broadening Avient’s portfolio of protective materials, Polystrand ThermoBallistic ballistic-resistant composite panels are compression moulded panels made with e-glass and thermoplastic resin systems that offer a cost-competitive alternative to ballistic-resistant materials made with other fibres or thermoset resins. ThermoBallistic panels provide structural bullet-resistant reinforcement to meet UL 752 Level 3 ballistic rating for interior and exterior architectural surfaces and components at a lighter weight than traditional panel materials, the company said in a press release.

Avient will also highlight its complete portfolio of advanced composite materials and engineered fibre solutions that offer high strength, weight reduction, and corrosion resistance for products across a broad range of industries and markets, including Thermoplastic Composites, Thermoset Composites, Engineered Fibre Solutions and Dyneema.

Avient is committed to helping customers meet sustainability goals in various ways through its composites portfolio. Composites are inherently lightweight alternatives to metal and other materials, enabling sustainability initiatives such as material reduction and fuel economy improvements in many end products. Thermoplastic recycled-content composites can further support a circular economy and help customers lessen their environmental impact.
