Trinseo Exhibits at Medtec Europe 2016

Global Custom Compounding, Plastics Highlighted

BERWYN, Pa. - Tuesday, April 12, 2016

Trinseo (NYSE: TSE), the global materials company and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders and synthetic rubber, will exhibit at Medtec Europe 2016 from April 12 – 14 at the Messe Stuttgart in Hall 3 booth 3F20.  Trinseo will share space in the booth of one of its European distribution partners for medical resins, VELOX GmbH. RESINEX, another European distributor and Medtec 2016 exhibitor, also distributes Trinseo medical resins.

Trinseo has served the global medical devices market for nearly three decades.  Part of the Dow Chemical Company until 2010, the company offers worldwide production and fulfillment, recently announcing its medical compounding capability in Asia Pacific to complement existing compounding in Europe and North America. These facilities are sourced with polycarbonate base resins from Trinseo’s highest quality, medically-equivalent resins produced in Germany and from its joint venture partner, Sumika Styron Polycarbonate Limited, in Japan. 

Trinseo will also highlight its high performance plastics for single- and multiple-use devices and equipment housings including: 

EMERGE™ 9000 Advanced Resins for outstanding chemical resistance
CALIBRE™ 5000 Polycarbonate Resins for biocompatible glass-filled grades
MAGNUM™ ABS Resins produced with mass polymerization technology for exceptional whiteness and purity

These materials address some of the industry’s critical challenges, including the miniaturization of medical instruments, the increase in home health care and point-of-care treatment, and the need to produce lighter weight devices. 

Also at the show, Trinseo’s Ben Porter, Technical Service & Development, will present “Medical Devices & Housings: New Plastic Material Innovation & Solutions to Reduce Part Weight.” The presentation will take place on Thursday, April 14 from 10:45 to 11:15 in the Exhibitor Theatre, Hall 5. 

Trinseo partners with distributors RESINEX and VELOX in Europe, Entec and PolyOne Distribution in North America and NCM Polymer Company, Ltd., in Asia Pacific to support medical OEMs and molders through its Consumer Essential Markets, Performance Plastics division.
