Company supports growth in self-administered healthcare

BERWYN, Pa. - Tuesday, July 11, 2017

Trinseo (NYSE: TSE), the global materials solution provider and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders and synthetic rubber, announced today that its Consumer Essential Markets (CEM) business unit will now support medical device and pharmaceutical manufacturers of Drug Delivery Devices with specialty engineered polymer solutions.

Typical drug delivery devices, also known as combination devices that can use Trinseo materials include auto injectors, insulin pens, asthma inhalers, prefilled syringes and wearable devices. The Company’s specialty compounded solutions are ideal for a wide range of applications – acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) for housings, polycarbonate (PC) for windows and needle shield caps, and polystyrene (PS) for secondary packaging.

Trinseo materials are offered under the brands CALIBRE™ Polycarbonate Resins, CALIBRE™ MEGARAD™ Polycarbonate Resins, EMERGE™ Advanced Resins, STYRON™ Polystyrene Resins and MAGNUM™ ABS Resins. They provide advantages which are critical to the market such as:

  • Appearance and color options
  • High impact resistance and toughness
  • High stiffness/modulus
  • Low residual monomer and oligomer levels
  • Radiation and Ethylene Oxide sterilization
  • Biocompatiblity tested resins and colors

Trinseo materials have been developed to meet the needs of manufacturers and molders - and they can be customized to meet exacting specifications. Trinseo medical grades have been biocompatibility tested and certain products are listed on a U.S. FDA Master Access File or Drug Master File.

The Company’s focus on drug delivery devices expands its support in the Medical Devices space which has included Single- and Multiple-Use Devices and Equipment Housings.  As healthcare professionals embrace self-administered care they need devices that not only are effective therapeutically but also offer their patients functionality, convenience, haptics and aesthetics. Polymers are a big part of the challenge and Trinseo, with a foundation in medical polymers, intends to offer the solution.
