Trinseo, a global materials company and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders and synthetic rubber, began production of its Magnum ABS production line at its manufacturing plant in Zhangjiagang.
The start-up is a milestone for Trinseo and the Asia-Pacific market, delivering on a promise to provide customers with a differentiated ABS product compared to other competitive resins produced in China, said Tim Stedman, senior vice president and business president, basic plastics and feedstocks at Trinseo, in a company release.
Trinseo will begin selling ABS from the plant in the fourth quarter of 2017.
An official unveiling ceremony will take place at the Zhangjiagang site with local dignitaries, neighbour companies, business management and employees.
Magnum ABS is manufactured by a mass polymerisation technology that can reduce the costs for injection moulding, sheet and profile extrusion, and self-colouring.
