Trinseo Supports Innovation in Consumer Electronics with Cross-Industry Performance Plastics Expertise

Resins with Biocompatibility, Chemical Resistance, Transparency and Recycled Content Offer Design Flexibility

Berwyn, PA. - Friday, September 8, 2017

Trinseo (NYSE:TSE), the global materials company and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders and synthetic rubber, is supporting innovation in the Consumer Electronics marketplace with its portfolio of performance plastics. A trip to most any consumer electronics event highlights the reality that plastics have played a major role in industry advancements, offering properties such as light weighting, durability, flexibility of design and aesthetics.

Now with continued improvements in application areas including smartphones, tablets, wearable devices and 3D printers, Trinseo’s Consumer Essential Markets (CEM) business segment is committed to keeping its customers ahead of the game with its EMERGE™ Advanced Resins. With expertise in the Consumer Electronics, Medical, Lighting, Electrical, and Automotive industries, the company is able to leverage technologies that once were driven exclusively by needs in other industries.

“We’re finding that consumer electronics customers are facing material challenges that they hadn’t considered in the past,” said Dr. Tony Samurkas, director of Technical Service & Development for Trinseo’s CEM business.  “These challenges range from biocompatible plastics for skin contact applications, to chemical resistant materials that won’t degrade when exposed to certain solutions, to transparent light diffusion grades to allow for translucent LED displays, to plastics with a certain percentage of recycled content.”

The consumer electronics industry is driving change at an incredibly fast pace and this requires material providers, and specifically plastics companies such as Trinseo, to offer the same level of innovation and next-generation materials that  enable performance, aesthetics and durability, while also supporting the manufacturer’s need for consumer acceptance and a successful product launch.
