Trinseo polystyrene resins for refrigerators enhance liner functionality and aesthetics.

Trinseo developed this new ESCR HIPS resin proprietary technology building on the benefits from industry-leader STYRON A-TECH™ 1175. The STYRON X-TECH™ 2175 offers all the performance enhancements of its predecessor with up to 10% material savings.
