High-quality, safe, and functional plastics for personal care

Sustainable Material Solutions for Personal Care Products

Reliable, safe, and functional: Meet strict standards and customer requirements

Based on three decades of experience providing material solutions to the medical devices industry, Trinseo offers a comprehensive portfolio of materials that meet the highest standards of quality, safety, functionality, sustainability and consumer appeal. Our materials are skin and food contact approved with exceptional haptics, grip and color stability.

Single source for rigid and soft-touch plastics

Trinseo is your single source for rigid and soft-touch plastics so you can benefit from our unique expertise in the development, production, and processing of both material types as well as a single point of contact with control over the chemistries of the rigid plastic substrate and the TPE for optimal adhesion in overmolding.

Sustainability

At Trinseo, we see it as one of our primary concerns to enable the sustainability goals of our customers. As alternatives to fossil-based materials we have developed a portfolio of sustainably advantaged materials (bioplastics and recycled-containing resins) that help you to achieve your objectives without compromising performance requirements of the final part. APILONTM 52 BIO is Trinseo’s flagship bio TPU with quantifiable environmental benefits.

Styrene-free compounds

Our wide range of styrene-free compounds under the brand name NEOGOL™ (OBC-based compounds) is aimed particularly at customers demanding a high-quality alternative material. NEOGOL™ offers outstanding processability and adheres to polyolefins.
