Trinseo (NYSE: TSE), a global materials solutions provider and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders and synthetic rubber, recently participated in two tire industry summits held in China, delivering technical presentations and meet with summit attendees on-site.
Trinseo had a presence at both the Tomorrow’s Tire Summit 2019 in Shanghai, and the 6th Global Green Tire New Material and Technology Summit 2019 in Zhejiang, Hangzhou. As a pioneer and thought leader in the tire industry, Trinseo’s objectives in attending the conferences were to introduce its innovative solution-styrene butadiene rubber (S-SBR) for tires, while also illustrating the market trend toward sustainability in tire materials.
Joon-Bum (JB) Pyun, Trinseo’s Technical Services & Development Leader, Synthetic Rubber APAC, and Thomas Wu, Senior Technical Services & Development Engineer delivered a presentation entitled “Advanced S-SBR – Addressing current and future needs of the industry,” introducing attendees to Trinseo’s synthetic rubber plant in Schkopau, Germany. With over 80 years of experience in the tire industry, a fourth S-SBR train was opened in 2018 to support our customers’ growth, apart from improving the sustainability of our high-performance tires.
Mega trends in the tire industry and the challenges we are facing, Trinseo’s innovation in S-SBR, and more importantly, our new S-SBR grades and the benefits these grades bring to the industry, were discussed. Both Trinseo’s high-performance tire materials and the technical presentations were well-received. To learn more about Trinseo’s synthetic rubber products, please click here.
