Trinseo (NYSE: TSE) a global materials company and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders, and synthetic rubber, announced today the addition of a new low-to-zero volatile organic compound (VOC) latex to its LIGOS™ Binders product portfolio.
Trinseo’s newest offering, LIGOS™ C 9467 binder for interior paints, is an alkylphenol ethoxylate-free vinyl acrylic latex that combines maximum performance, including exceptional scrub resistance, touch up, and hiding performance, with low-to-zero VOC technology for reduced environmental impact. It is currently available in North America.
“At Trinseo, we are committed to delivering future-oriented solutions that meet unique market, application and processing needs,” said Lauren Pagano, Trinseo Global Business Director, CASE. “We designed LIGOS™ C 9467 to answer the demand for a more sustainable product that doesn’t sacrifice on performance. Not only does it help our customers reduce their environmental impact, formulations using Trinseo latex outperform similar products on the market by up to 700 scrub cycles.”
The new product, and the LIGOS™ portfolio, is part of Trinseo’s coatings, adhesives, sealants, and elastomers (CASE) business, focused on delivering future-oriented solutions that help customers meet their sustainability needs while designing products that address future trends and have true market differentiation. Trinseo’s CASE solutions include Styrene Butadiene latexes for roofing elastomerics that help reduce cooling costs and have remarkable adhesion to various substrates and bleed-through resistance, Styrene Acrylic latexes for masonry coatings that control moisture and structural damage, and bio-hybrid products for more sustainable interior paint primers.
“With over 70 years of experience in the latex binders business, we develop tailored, innovative solutions that address the individual needs of our customers—including performance, sustainability, regulatory, and economic issues—to drive their success,” Pagano said. “The CASE industry is a growth market for us, and we will continue to invest in our capabilities to service our customers and address significant megatrends including urbanization and sustainability.”
Trinseo acquired a new production facility in Rheinmunster, Germany, in late 2019. The acquisition expands Trinseo’s latex binders operation to nine manufacturing sites, four application lab facilities, and a global R&D hub strategically placed across the globe for production. The expanded network allows Trinseo to develop and produce new solutions, invest capital for technology upgrades, and optimize operations for the mix of products and chemistries most needed by CASE customers.
