Trinseo to Present New Synthetic Rubber Solution at Tire Technology Expo

New multifunctionalized Grade SPRINTAN 918S for easy-to-process Ultra High Performance tire application

HORGEN, Switzerland - Monday, March 4, 2019

Trinseo (NYSE: TSE), a global materials solutions provider and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders, and synthetic rubber, will present a new grade of multifunctionalized S-SBR, SPRINTANTM 918S, at the Tire Technology Expo (Hall 20 – Booth C320) from March 5-7 in Hanover, Germany.

In recent years, Trinseo has frequently added new grades to its range of Solution Styrene Butadiene Rubber (S-SBR) products. The company’s new multifunctionalized S-SBR achieves an optimum balance of low rolling resistance, high grip, and a good mechanical property profile.

The new oil extended grade, SPRINTANTM 918S, was developed by Trinseo to address the increasing challenges, such as physical stability, safety, high fuel efficiency at the same time with easy processability for the tread of Ultra High Performance tires. These type of tires see an increasing demand triggered by the growth of SUVs and light trucks market. SPRINTANTM 918S is an easy-to-process, multifunctionalized S-SBR grade that, in terms of processing, is comparable with the best-in-class benchmark, a non-functionalized polymer. It also substantially improves fuel efficiency and has excellent mechanical properties while sustaining good wet grip.

“Standing at the forefront of innovation for the tire industry, our newly launched product is making an important contribution to the current challenge in the industry to balance processability and increased performance,said Samer Al Jabi, Trinseo’s global business director, Synthetic Rubber.”In addition to the launch of Trinseo’s latest innovative material solution at Tire Techology Expo, the Company will demonstrate its expertise in this field with two presentations:
