MAGNUM ABS BIO
Trinseo’s established MAGNUM™ ABS resin for automotive applications was made available in a more sustainable version: MAGNUM™ ABS BIO. During polymerization, fossil-based polymers are combined with renewable raw materials according to a mass balance process (ISCC+).
Because the renewable raw materials become identical in chemical composition to their fossil-based counterparts during feedstock cracking, segregation during manufacturing is unnecessary. The material is structurally and functionally the same as its fossil-based counterpart and can be used with existing tooling and equipment under the same processing conditions, meaning there is no need for requalification, all while offering a significantly lower CO2 footprint.
Trinseo is proud to introduce an updated version MAGNUM BIO ABS, with up to 95% bio-attributed content, and a 92% product carbon footprint (PCF) reduction compared to the all-prime equivalent.
ALTUGLAS™ R-Life V825T
ALTUGLAS™ R-Life V825T is a family of sustainably advantaged injection molding grade acrylics with broad applicability in the automotive industry and beyond, available in clear, red, and black. The resins are available with either chemically or mechanically recycled feedstock and offer outstanding optical properties, UV stability, scratch resistance and colorability in line with their all-prime equivalents. ALTUGLAS™ R-Life V825T is offered with a minimum of 35% recyclate for mechanical recycling, and a minimum of 50% recyclate for chemical recycling.
