Colorant Chromatics to Expand in Shanghai, China

Shanghai – 13 September 2012 - Colorant Chromatics, a subsidiary of PolyOne Corporation and a global specialist in coloring and formulating high-temperature polymers, today announced plans to expand production and service capabilities at its Shanghai facility.
