Innovative Materials for Premium Exterior Automotive Applications

Trinseo provides advanced lightweighting automotive materials for enhanced exteriors to global car manufacturers. Trinseo PC/ABS, ABS, and polypropylene (PP) are specifically developed for lightweighting, high-end aesthetics, and premium quality requirements. 

Our global reach is an important differentiator for our customers. Trinseo Automotive is the largest supplier for PC/ABS to the automotive market in Europe and North America. All of our new products are designed with global production in mind and available from production facilities in all major car production regions.

Trinseo products for exterior applications offer high-quality fit and finish, durability, and dimensional stability. Our MAGNUM™ ABS Resins and PULSE™ PC/ABS Resins enable less weight for reduced CO2 emissions and improved fuel efficiency. At the same time, they meet creative styling needs, allowing larger and more-complex shapes. Key features of MAGNUM™ ABS Resins and PULSE™ PC/ABS Resins are high heat resistance, high gloss, low density, and paintability. They meet low coefficient of linear thermal expansion (CLTE) requirements and are cost-effective alternatives to PC/PET and PC/SAN.
