BERWYN, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Trinseo (NYSE: TSE), a global materials solutions provider and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders and synthetic rubber, kicked off its 2018 webinar series on January 23 with “Optimizing Performance and Achieving Greater Customer Satisfaction from Your ABS Resin Selection.”
The webinar focused on the difference between the emulsion method of ABS production and the alternative mass polymerization process, which is the method used by Trinseo in producing its MAGNUM™ ABS Resins. It drew an audience of OEMs, extruders and thermoformers from across the globe.
Trinseo shared important findings from its latest research highlighting the advantages of its MAGNUM™ ABS Resins including:
- Lot-to-lot consistency and exceptional whiteness for ease of coloring
- Low gels for superior surface aesthetics
- UV stability for long lasting color quality
- Low Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs )
Other topics discussed were the cost savings advantages of the material. For one, due to its superior white base, less pigment is needed to achieve a desired color. This results in a direct savings in pigment cost. Additionally, because of the low gel levels, manufacturers and processors can lower their risk of flawed surfaces thereby reducing the costs of scrappage and potentially dissatisfied customers.
Trinseo has been producing ABS for over four decades and manufactures the material in North America, Europe and Asia. Zhangjiagang, China is Trinseo’s newest site where production began during the second half of 2017.
As a manufacturer and compounder of injection molding and extrusion grade MAGNUM™ ABS Resins, Trinseo was most interested in sharing the value of its ABS produced by mass polymerization, because there is a significant difference in ABS material determined by its production method and this is something that is often overlooked when selecting resins.
