Trinseo, (NYSE: TSE) a global materials solutions provider and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders and synthetic rubber, was invited by KraussMaffei, a leading manufacturer of plastic machine technologies, to demonstrate for customers the partnership between the two companies. Trinseo’s innovative PULSE™ Polycarbonate Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (PC ABS) resins were used to flawlessly produce high quality automotive parts on KraussMaffeis’ ColorForm.
“The characteristics of Trinseo’s PULSE™ AX50, perfectly match with different polyurethane, polyurea lacquers and KraussMaffei’s ColorForm technology,” said Claus Hermans, Trinseo’s Sr. Technical Service and Development Specialist. “Our PC ABS makes an important contribution to the high quality and cost-efficient production of advanced automotive plastic applications.”
KraussMaffei’s ColorForm Technology, in combination with Trinseo’s PC/ABS resin, meets the automotive industry’s demands for short production cycle times and lower manufacturing costs.
The innovative technology produces super high and deep gloss interior trim parts in one machine, eliminating thereby the extra step needed for paining or coating the part. This enables automotive manufactures to answer to the growing need for a bigger variety in different colors and designs used in car interiors.
“It was our honor to be a part of KraussMaffei’s 180th anniversary at their facility in Munich. Our joint company’s collaboration has produced an excellent application, which customers were able to witness operate without fail for two days,” said René Kruidenier, Trinseo’s Application Development Engineering Group Manager Automotive Europe.
