MAGNUM™ ABS resins provide consistent quality and superior aesthetics for applications ranging from bathtubs and shower trays to caravan and RV parts, and from furniture edgebands to home appliances.

BERWYN, Pa. - Wednesday, September 20, 2017

Trinseo (NYSE: TSE), a global materials company and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders and synthetic rubber, announced today the introduction of a diverse range of MAGNUM™ ABS grades new to the North American market.

MAGNUM™ ABS is a strong, reputable brand with a long history of success in the market and with customers. Its unique advantage in the manufacturing process allows for consistent quality. It produces resins that are whiter and purer, resulting in improved aesthetics. MAGNUM™ ABS provides a more consistent, stable and reliable product.

“Trinseo is excited to be offering an expanded portfolio to the North American market,” said Francesca Reverberi, global business director for Trinseo Basic Plastics. “MAGNUM™ ABS has a strong reputation with customers for quality and high performance, and Trinseo is confident that its product will meet the needs of North American customers as it has done in other regions across the world.”

Trinseo is an agile and responsive organization that has a global ABS presence with production plants in Midland (MI), US, Terneuzen, The Netherlands and Zhangjiagang, China. The Company is expanding the range of MAGNUM™ ABS grades to the North American market that are particularly valued in Europe for their advanced properties that meet a broad range of needs from sheet and profile extrusion to injection molding.

North American customers can now enjoy a more extensive portfolio of MAGNUM™ ABS grades and will continue to benefit from: cost saving on coloring, wider processing window, reduced VOC, improved machine utilization, and higher-end aesthetics.

Available in both medium and high impact resistance grades, MAGNUM™ ABS Resins suit a multitude of application needs such as bathtubs and shower trays, parts for trucks / caravans / diggers / tractors, golf cart roofs, carrier tapes, furniture edgebands, advertising and POP displays, home appliances, air conditioners, healthcare equipment, garden and power tools, exercise and sporting equipment and many more sheet extrusion and injection molding applications.
