Trinseo’s Coloring Group Gains Certification from Renault’s Industrial Design Department

Certification empowers Company’s color lab to self-validate and accredit colors according to Renault specifications

BERWYN, Pa. - Friday, July 13, 2018

Trinseo, (NYSE: TSE) a global materials solutions provider and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders and synthetic rubber, believes that an intelligent color concept is a key element for successful automotive design. To strengthen this asset within the automotive business, Trinseo’s experts develop and implement solutions for precise coloring in their color labs.

Recently Trinseo’s Color Group, located in The Netherlands, received an accreditation certification from the Groupe Renault’s Industrial DESIGN Department. The certification demonstrates Renault’s confidence in Trinseo to self-validate and self-accredit new or existing colors with new materials, rather than a third party laboratory, in compliance with Renault’s “Rule for assessing supplier competence in metrology, testing or calculations.”

As a color supplier, Trinseo maintains a long-term business relationship with strategic partner Renault. The Color Group continuously works with Renault to further improve its high-performance products. In the development of color masterbatches for the automotive industry, Trinseo puts great emphasis on consistent quality, product innovation, and proactive customer support.

In addition to coloring groups for rigid polymers in Terneuzen, The Netherlands, Hsinchu, China, and Clinton, Tennessee, Trinseo has a well-established soft-polymer coloring team in Mussolente, Italy. This team offers in-depth expertise in color matching for TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) and TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) solutions, particularly renowned in the footwear and fashion industry.
