OMNOVA prides itself on strong, core values andan inventive spirit.OMNOVA works to create innovative polymeric materials for a hostof applications. At a certain facility, during the process of creatingthe polymer as well as other substances, their original baghouse dustcollector was not cleaning well with the sticky materials.
