Trinseo introduces STYRON X-TECH™ 2175 Polystyrene Resin for appliance applications

Advanced technology enables stronger, thinner walls and up to 10% material savings

BERWYN, Pa. - Friday, October 21, 2016

Trinseo (NYSE: TSE), the global materials company and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders and synthetic rubber, announced the launch of its new STYRON X-TECH™ 2175 Polystyrene resin – changing the industry with advanced down-gauging in freezers and refrigerators. The environmental stress crack resistance High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS) offering debuted at a private customer event at K-Show 2016 and is the first release from the STYRON X-TECH™ Polystyrene resins technology platform, aimed at applications in the home appliances, packaging and building and construction markets.

Developed with Trinseo’s proprietary technology, STYRON X-TECH™ 2175 builds on the success of its predecessor, bar raising STYRON A-TECH™ 1175 Polystyrene resin, with enhanced material performance and processing through its unique combination of high stiffness and very high melt strength:

  • Improved Environmental Stress Crack Resistance (ESCR): STYRON X-TECH™ 2175 offers an advanced level of stiffness and chemical resistance to foodstuff in liners, reinforcing the end-application with a higher level of ESCR and strength against impact.  
  • Advanced down-gauging: Through its improved rigidity, STYRON X-TECH™ 2175 Polystyrene resin enables manufacturers to produce better performing refrigerator and freezer liners using less raw material – resulting in up to 10% material savings.

“Trinseo has raised the bar for performance in refrigerator liners with STYRON A-TECH™ 1175 Polystyrene resin,” said Francesca Reverberi, Global Business Director, Trinseo Basic Plastics. “Today, we continue to advance the industry by introducing the next generation. Trinseo’s development efforts aim to set new performance standards in appliances applications with the new STYRON X-TECH™ Polystyrene resins platform.”
