Trinseo has been providing polymers to global medical device manufacturers for nearly three decades and supports single and multiple use medical devices, drug delivery systems, and medical equipment housings with material solutions. The company has seen an increase in the use of ABS for medical devices because of benefits including processability, aesthetics, colorability, and toughness as well as potential customer cost savings opportunities.

Trinseo offers its ABS under the MAGNUM™ ABS Resins brand.

Besides MAGNUM ABS Resins, Trinseo offers CALIBRE Polycarbonate Resins, EMERGE Advanced Resins, and STYRON Polystyrene Resins. Trinseo has a full portfolio of medical grade resins that have been tested for biocompatibility according to ISO 10993.
