Trinseo’s Consumer Essential Markets Medical Devices Business Supports Fetal Monitor Wearable Device with Advanced Plastic

BERWYN, Pa. - Tuesday, May 16, 2017

Trinseo (TSE), the global materials company and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders and synthetic rubber, has been selected to supply its performance plastics to Mo Fe Ma, a startup company based in Poland. Trinseo’s EMERGE™ PC/ABS 7700 Advanced Resins can now be found in the ZuzaMED device. This  innovative, small and portable fetal monitor rests on the maternal body of expectant mothers to monitor the health condition of the fetus as it develops. It is worn across the belly and can be used without any restriction to length of time.

Trinseo’s EMERGE™ PC/ABS 7700 Advanced Resins are widely used and accepted in the medical device industry and meet the technical requirements of the application including:

  • Biocompatibility for extended skin contact
  • Low density for light weighting
  • UL 94 flame retardancy to provide for the user’s safety

EMERGE™ PC/ABS 7700 Advanced Resins are   also durable to withstand movement and jarring, resists dirt and grime, and is able to be cleaned with a 40% alcohol solution.

ZuzaMED is the first product offered by Mo Fe Ma. It is considered by Poland officials to be of major importance for soon-to-be moms and their children. It can be seen and purchased at www.zuzamed.pl.

VELOX, a distributor of Trinseo medical resins in Europe that partners with Trinseo’s Consumer Essential Markets (CEM) Medical Devices business, successfully positioned Trinseo’s EMERGE™ PC/ABS 7700 Advanced Resins for Mo Fe Ma’s fetal monitor application. The material was specified because of its unique ABS component. Produced using Trinseo’s proprietary mass polymerization technology (vs. an emulsion process), Trinseo’s ABS results in exceptionally white base resin, which was essential for the application requiring the base color with as little yellowing as possible for ease of coloring.

Trinseo’s CEM business continues to pursue its strategy of targeting startup companies.  These are the organizations that have a tendency to value the personalized service and custom solutions that CEM offers.
