Trinseo Highlights Super-High-Diffusion Materials; Goes Thinner For Housings at Strategies in Light 2017

BERWYN, Pa. - Tuesday, February 28, 2017

 Trinseo (NYSE: TSE), the global materials company and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders and synthetic rubber, will highlight its portfolio of EMERGE™ Advanced Resins for lighting systems at Strategies in Light 2017, today through March 2, at the Anaheim Convention Center in California in booth 314. Featured products include Transparent and Light Diffusion Grades for Optics and High Reflectivity White and Opaque Materials for Housings and Reflectors.  

Trinseo’s EMERGE™ Advanced Resins feature innovative technology that provides solutions to many of the constant challenges that face the lighting industry including the need to balance light diffusion and transmission, light weight, and design aesthetically pleasing, cost effective housings.

“We’ve been developing custom polycarbonate-based solutions for the LED Lighting industry practically from the start of the LED trend,” said Bill Marshall who leads Trinseo’s North America lighting team.  “Our goal has always been to understand our customers’ needs and to develop material solutions to help them keep pace with and take advantage of the benefits of the technology.”

Notable materials from Trinseo include:

  • Housings - EMERGE™ PC 8030 Advanced Resins. The material is UL 94 certified 5VA @ 2.5 mm  and UL V-0 @ 0.8 mm offering the opportunity to further control cost by using less material and producing lighter weight parts. The material is UL 746C f1 certified, indicating suitability for outdoor applications.
  • Light Diffusion - EMERGE™ PC 8160 Advanced Resins. This is a super-high-diffusion grade with an excellent LED hiding capability, innovative glare reduction technology, and high flux efficiency. The material is UL 94 certified V-0 @ 1.0 mm.

LED Lighting is supported by Trinseo’s Consumer Essential Markets (CEM) business, which provides specialty engineered polymer solutions to targeted markets including Medical Devices, Consumer Electronics, Electrical and Specialty Sheet & Films. There has been a growing synergy among the markets that Trinseo supports and its lighting grades in particular have experienced recent cross-industry demand because of technologies that have broad application.
