Trinseo, a global materials solutions provider and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders and synthetic rubber, said that it will participate in the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, which will be held from 9 to 12 January 2018.
Trinseo will host a number of presentations on High Performance Plastics for the Consumer Electronics Industry in the Venetian Towers, Hospitality Suites area, on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of the show.
Trinseo has been a trusted supplier of polycarbonate, polystyrene and ABS compounds to consumer technology customers, focused on Consumer Electronics, Medical Devices, Lighting and Automotive.
With its cross-industry experience, the company has helped customers with challenges ranging from biocompatible plastics for skin contact applications, to chemical resistant materials that won’t degrade from chemical aggressors, to transparent and diffusion materials for proper aesthetics in LED-type applications, to plastics with recycled content.
“We’re seeing a rapid convergence among the consumer technology areas and, in many ways, plastics have been an enabler of the advancements in the marketplace. With plastics, product developers and designers have flexibility in design.
They have the ability to light weight and miniaturize as well as tremendous possibilities with aesthetics, coloring, and haptics,” said Dr. Tony Samurkas, who directs performance plastics technology development at Trinseo.
“We’re also seeing customers with performance property needs that they may not have had to consider in the past. This is where Trinseo excels. Custom material solutions have always been our specialty.”
