Trinseo (NYSE: TSE), a global materials solutions provider and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders and synthetic rubber, will highlight its MAGNUM™ ABS Resins at the Extrusion 2018 Conference hosted at the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland, September 18-20. This is part of Trinseo’s goal to increase global awareness for one of its highly-differentiated brands.
In addition to exhibiting (Hall A, Booth 405), Trinseo was selected to present at the conference. Cheryl Weckle, senior development scientist for Trinseo, will share the advantages of a mass polymerization process in “Selecting an ABS resin to optimize performance and achieve satisfaction.” Weckle has 29 years of experience working with a variety of plastics and has been involved with product development for many sectors that Trinseo supports including Automotive, Consumer Electronics, and Medical Devices.
MAGNUM™ has been a preferred choice of manufacturers and processors for over 50 years. The material is distinct due to its mass polymerization technology that results in an exceptionally white base color, low gel levels, and low residual Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).
The material can be found in applications ranging from home appliances to consumer goods to sheet for building and construction products. The company is a key supplier to nearly all of the manufacturers of furniture edgebands in Europe and is used by most of the major automotive OEMs worldwide.
Trinseo produces MAGNUM™ ABS Resins in Midland, Michigan; Terneuzen, The Netherlands; and Zhangjiagang, China. The properties of low gels and quality of color are especially attractive to extruders. Not only is a natural whiteness necessary to minimize pigment cost but an extruded material that goes through the secondary process of thermoforming requires an exceptionally smooth surface and this is made possible by the low gel content.
