Horgen, Switzerland - Tuesday, February 16, 2016

Trinseo (NYSE: TSE), the global materials solutions provider and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders and synthetic rubber, is participating at the Tire Technology Expo, Europe's leading international Tire Design and Tire Manufacturing Exhibition and Conference. This year marks the first time that Trinseo will exhibit its wide range of standard and advanced rubber solutions at the show.

During the Expo Trinseo will feature its developments in the next generation rubber portfolio, part of their advanced product mix, which helps customers achieve improved tire ratings and enhanced performance. This latest Trinseo innovation provides new solutions to address multiple key tire properties, principally rolling resistance, wet and dry grip, improved abrasion resistance, and good handling.

As one of the top technology leaders in synthetic rubber, the company’s R&D department is dedicated to continuously enhance its offering for the synthetic rubber markets by developing innovative new rubber technologies. Exhibition visitors will receive an update on Neodymium BR (Nd-BR), a high performance technology complementary to S-SBR that Trinseo is developing to address current market needs.

Two of Trinseo’s key R&D Leaders will also present recent findings in the development of functionalized synthetic rubber and high-cis polybutadiene rubber as part of the official conference program on Day 2.
