A. Schulman To Highlight The Performance, Appearance And Processing Advantages Of Its Papermatch® Products At InnoPlast's 2012 Plastic Modification Technologies Conference

AKRON, Ohio, Oct. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- A. Schulman, Inc. (Nasdaq-GS: SHLM), a leading global supplier of engineered plastics, masterbatches, specialty powders and distribution services, will present at the 2012 InnoPlast Solutions Plastic Modification Technologies Conference.

Chris Kerscher, Marketing Manager, Masterbatches, will speak at the conference, to be held October 17-19 at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada.  Kerscher's presentation will focus on A. Schulman's Papermatch ® synthetic paper products which impart the look, feel and performance features of paper into plastic film structures.

"Consumers are changing their preferences to demand the performance of plastic, but the look and feel of more 'natural' materials. Major brands are choosing synthetic paper because of its luxurious appearance, soft touch and paper-like features," Kerscher said.  "Unlike other synthetic paper options, Papermatch ® formulations are easily extruded into existing film structures, offering unique flexibility for package designers and processors.  Advantages of Papermatch ® include its tailored surface roughness to enhance the tactile experience; high tensile strength to improve dead fold; and resistance to water, chemicals, oil and grease.  It also offers valued visual characteristics such as surface uniformity, printability and color constancy."

Papermatch ® can be used for a wide variety of applications including food packaging, pet food bags, labels, maps, mailers, cartons, calendars, business cards, booklets, banners and point-of-purchase displays.

InnoPlast Solutions offers consultations, conferences, courses and analytical services for the plastics industry.  The organization's Plastic Modification Technologies conference will focus on the newest trends and technical advances in the field of plastic modification.
