Trinseo, a global materials company, and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders, and synthetic rubber, successfully started-up a MAGNUM ABS production line at the company’s manufacturing plant at the Zhangjiagang, China site. The demand for MAGNUM ABS in the auto, appliance, electronics, lighting and consumer goods markets, will easily be met from the new facility. Trinseo has planned an official unveiling ceremony on November 21st, 2017 at the Zhangjiagang site with local dignitaries, neighbor companies, business management, and employees. Trinseo will begin selling ABS from this plant in the fourth quarter of 2017.
A mass polymerization technology that delivers greater product stability and advanced properties are used to manufacture MAGNUM ABS. This technology can reduce costs for injection molding, sheet & profile extrusion, and self-coloring while offering long-lasting superior aesthetics in the final product.
Tim Stedman, SVP and Business President, Basic Plastics & Feedstocks at Trinseo, said, “Production of MAGNUM ABS in China is an important milestone for Trinseo and the Asia Pacific market. We are delivering on our promise at Trinseo of providing our customers with a differentiated ABS product compared to other competitive resins produced in China today.”
Trinseo is focused on delivering innovative and sustainable solutions to help our customers create products that touch lives every day — products that are intrinsic to how we live our lives — across a wide range of end-markets, including automotive, consumer electronics, appliances, medical devices, lighting, electrical, carpet, paper and board, building and construction, and tires.
