For over 80 years, Trinseo has led the way in the development of polystyrene polymers, maximizing their versatility for a wide range of end markets, and taking the material full circle to optimize its sustainability potential
Trinseo’s STYRON™ brand of polystyrene resins is one of the longest established and respected brands in the industry. It is widely recognized in the global marketplace as a versatile plastic used to make a variety of high-quality applications from refrigerator liners and food packaging to insulation materials and consumer electronics to medical items and toys.
As one of Trinseo’s most popular materials, our research and development into the material is unending. Over the years we’ve built a portfolio that includes STYRON™ General Purpose Resins (GPPS) as well as High Impact Resins (HIPS), STYRON A-TECH™ Polystyrene, STYRON™ C-TECH Polystyrene and STYRON™ X-TECH Polystyrene for advanced levels of performance.
We’ve taken the material to the next level with our recycled grades. Our newest STYRON™ CO2RE™ brand is our portfolio of recycled polystyrene materials. Available at various levels of sustainable content and source type, these resins benefit from the simple molecular composition of polystyrene that allows it to be reused with similar or even identical properties to its virgin equivalent.
When customers want high consistency, easy processability, optimal stiffness-to-density ratio allowing less plastic to be used, and excellent performance they often think of polystyrene first. And when they want quality, reliability, intimate working relationships, and ongoing, trusted technical support they rely on Trinseo and the STYRON™ brand.
Trinseo offers a complete line of polystyrene materials in Europe and Asia Pacific. Polystyrene resins are available in North America through Americas Styrenics, a joint venture equally owned by Trinseo and Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LP.
