HORGEN, Switzerland - Tuesday, March 28, 2017

Trinseo (NYSE: TSE), a global materials company and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders and synthetic rubber, is commencing production of MAGNUM™ ABS Resins in Zhangjiagang, China, in 2017. A key development, reinforcing Trinseo’s position as a sustainable partner for global product supply and consistency, will feature strongly in the Company’s presence at the VDI ‘Plastics in Automotive Engineering’ conference.

Reliable global supply

Trinseo MAGNUM™ ABS Resins have a successful history in automotive exterior and interior applications for OEMs in North America and Europe. Now the same MAGNUM™ ABS product range will be produced in China, providing the same high-quality and consistent performance globally.

“This growth strengthens our existing collaborative relationships with our customers, delivering on our commitment to provide premium ABS products worldwide. I look forward to sharing further updates at VDI,” said Thomas Mettler, Global Product Director, Performance Plastics.

About MAGNUM™ ABS Resins

The MAGNUM™ ABS Resins portfolio differentiates itself from competition, due to proprietary mass polymerization technology which provides a number of functional qualities tailored to the automotive industry: low gloss, low odor and excellent consistent material quality. This versatility means that MAGNUM™ ABS can cater to the individual needs of Tier suppliers and OEMs, and enable significant cost savings on coloring without a loss of quality.

It is available globally for use in a wide variety of interior automotive applications, and is increasingly being used for exterior applications
