“Back in 1981, most of the bumper covers were actually made from urethane plastic,” said Kurt Lammon, company president. “The founder of our company, Jim Sparks, came up with the original name because he supplied products required to repair urethane bumper covers.”
Since most bumper covers are now made from blends of polypropylene, the Urethane named created confusion.
“We often get calls from people who want to buy urethane foam, thinking that we supply urethane,” said Lammon. “We wanted a name that speaks to our main mission, which is advancing the technology of polymer repair.”
“Advancing Polymer Repair” is the official tagline and the inspiration for the name Polyvance. Polyvance will continue to be devoted entirely to helping body shops profit from plastic repair and refinishing through its innovative products and training.
Polvance will continue production of its most popular products and will continue to be available through paint, body and equipment distributors across North America.
