Trinseoa??s New Overmolding TPE Grades to Launch at Detroita??s SPE Automotive TPO Conference

(NYSE: TSE) a global materials solutions provider and manufacturer of
plastics, latex binders and synthetic rubber, will introduce four new
series of thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) at Detroita??s SPE Automotive
TPO Conference on October 7-10, 2018. The four new TPE series include 16
new overmolding grades specifically developed for automotive
applications, offering improved adhesion to Trinseoa??s MAGNUMTM
ABS and PULSETM PC/ABS product range.

Trinseo has a long heritage in performance plastics with over 30 years
of experience in the development of rigid plastic materials for use in
automotive applications. Since the acquisition of API in 2017, the
company has gained unique expertise in both the formulation technology
and compounding processes of TPE solutions. The introduction of these
new TPEs marks a milestone in the integration process as Trinseo works
to further expand the synergies between its rigid- and soft-touch
product portfolios.

The automotive industrya??s demand for TPEs enabling premium aesthetics
and haptics is growing. For many engineers, the increasing demands on
function and surface design can best be met with TPE overmolding
solutions. Trinseoa??s new TPE series provides a broad range of hardness,
melt flows, and finishes for excellent aesthetics and processability in
injection molded and extruded applications.

Tony Samurkas, Trinseoa??s TS&D Director North America, will present the
companya??s new TPE series on Wednesday, October 10, 2018 at 10 a.m. ET.

"Bonding strength between the TPE and the polar substrate is dependent
on the chemical compatibility of the materials,a?? Samurkas said. "Optimal
adhesion is achieved if you have the control and expert knowledge about
the technology of both the rigid- and soft-touch plastics.a??
