One of Polyone´s business verticals is “Specialty Engineered Materials”.

Below is a quote from the company´s  homepage (source link)

“A leading provider of specialty polymer formulations, services and solutions for designers, assemblers and processors of thermoplastic materials across a wide variety of markets and end-use applications. Our product portfolio, which we believe to be one of the most diverse in our industry, includes specialty formulated, high-performance polymer materials that are manufactured using thermoplastic resins and elastomers, which are then combined with advanced polymer additives, reinforcement, filler, colorant and /or biomaterial technologies.”

With +7000 associates, the company´s distribution comprehends “more than 3,500 grades of engineering and commodity grade resins, including PolyOne-produced solutions, PolyOne Distribution principally serves the North American and Asian markets. Products are sold to more than 6,000 custom injection molders and extruders who, in turn, convert them into plastic parts that are sold to end-users in a wide range of industries. Representing over 25 major suppliers, PolyOne Distribution offers a broad product portfolio, just-in-time delivery from multiple stocking locations and local technical support. Recent expansion in Central America and Asia has bolstered PolyOne distribution’s ability to serve the specialized needs of customers globally.

In the following work resulting in a patent application which subsequently was published in July 28 2016, Nexam Chemical was stated as the commercial source in “TABLE-US-00002” (see source link below).

Patent application title (US20160215095):

PREPARATION OF IMIDE OLIGOMERS VIA CONCURRENT REACTIVE EXTRUSION

Patent application abstract:

“Reactive extrusion can be used in a continuous, solvent-less preparation of imide oligomers involving two competing reactions among three ingredients, the first reaction between a dianhydride and a diamine and the second reaction between an endcap and the same diamine. The imide oligomer can form a composite via conventional production methods or via formation of a film from imide oligomer re-melted in an extruder before being impregnated into tape or fabric.”

More interestingly, Polyone seems to be a perfect customer. Why? Well, let´s look at the product portfolio. A bullish CESI believes it might be reasonable that Polyone is “generally interested” to boost internal technology and properties of products where possible.

 

CESI speculative conclusion: Potentially, Polyone might be one of the “later generation” customers. Time will tell.

Findings like these makes CESI believe that the positive statements from the CEO Anders Spetz is based on fundamental progress and near future acceleration of turnaround and subsequent revenue. The Q2 report burnrate of approximately 5 MSEK (of total cash ~138 M SEK) was positively explained with “cost associated with stockpiling”.

Reactive compositions made from semi-crystalline amino polyamide prepolymer and unsaturated extender for thermoplastic composite materials

Composite materials and, more particularly, composite materials comprising a polymeric matrix impregnated reinforcing fibers are increasingly used in many technical fields, especially in aeronautical applications, aerospace, wind, automobile , rail, marine. These applications mainly require composites with high mechanical performance, especially at high operating temperatures and with structural lightweight parts by weight relative to the metal and recyclable equivalent parts.

“To improve the impregnation of reinforcing fibers in the case of a thermoplastic composite material, reactive compositions precursors of the composite material based on a reactive prepolymer and a coreactive chain extender them have been proposed.
Preparation of polyamide polymer by chain extension with an extender a2)
Of the oligomer 1 above dried and ground is mixed in the solid state with 4- anhydride (methyl ethynyl) phthalic (APME, Mn = 186.2 g / mol) sold under the name ® A32 Nexamite by the company Nexam Chemical anhydride or trimellitic phenyl ethynyl (PETA, Mn = 276.3 g / mol) sold under the name Nexamite A56 ® by the company Nexam Chemical at different molar ratios a2) / NH2. The amounts are calculated so that the mixing weight is equal to 12 g.”

Miris Holding AB: CESI very much appreciated the presentation by Ulf Boberg. A turnaround case around the corner? Time will tell!

http://miris.se/

Nanologica AB: Difficult to grasp risk/reward. CESI believes the parallel strategies approach is necessary and relevant: High quality silica business aimed for non-preparative (i. d. analytic) chromatography in parallel to development of a high risk drug delivery platform. On the upside: One single drug delivery success equals “the sky is the limit”…

Nilsson special vehicles AB: An easily digested business. The representatives delivered a solid teaser and seem eager to deliver!

Karessa AB: A solid presentation and an interesting algea approach…

http://www.karessa.se/en/home/

AHA World AB: An embraced presentation with the theme “AHA World AB, black-belt in customer relations”. Interestingly, the share price surged (+ 28% intra day).

Raybased AB: Today´s most interesting company. CESI is convinced the company and “the internet of things” will attract a lot of interest from customers as well as investors. CESI seriously considers to become a share holder.

“Raybased implements IoT in commercial real estate by developing and selling an open wireless system for advanced building automation. The system makes it possible to monitor, control and optimize all electrical functions in a building, such as heating, ventilation, lighting and secure systems. The system’s potential is far greater than that, and only the human imagination is the limit.”
