During CHINAPLAS 2017, global plastics, latex binders and synthetic rubber materials manufacturer Trinseo took the opportunity to introduce its new MAGNUM acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) resins, which will be produced locally later this year under the "MaiChun" brand name.

Through its Zhangjiagang site, the company aims is to meet market demand, respond quickly to customer needs and improve technical support in China. It will also be Trinseo's first ABS factory in Asia.

"Building up ABS capability at our Zhangjiagang site will be the first step for us," Tatianna Yung, Trinseo's Asia Pacific Product Market Manager, said. "We are working rigorously to achieve this goal. At present I cannot give you a definite date of the opening nor the manufacturing capacity that we will have."

Trinseo MAGNUM ABS resins are produced using mass polymerization technology, which enables injection molding and extrusion processes to take advantage of the materials' characteristics.

"This is a novel revelation in Asia. As far as I know, most ABS resins in the region are based on emulsion technology."

"Compared with other products in the Asian market, MAGNUM ABS resins feature a light white base color. This helps in self-coloring or pre-coloring to save costs without compromising the appearance or quality of their products," Yung explained.

She said the material meets the requirements of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) emission standards with high lot-to-lot consistency due to its mass polymerization technology.

MAGNUM ABS can be used in a wide array of applications, including automotive, furniture, home appliances and medical.

"In the European market, MAGNUM ABS is a leader in the field of extrusion. These extruded sheets are selected for suitcases, bathroom applications, car interiors or office desks," Yung said. "In addition, the material is also commonly used as sealants for furniture."

Especially for suitcases, she noted that due to the high costs of polycarbonate (PC), a lot of producers are switching to ABS/PC blends with a certain amount of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA).

Both MAGNUM ABS and high heat-resistant grade resins will be produced in China, the latter is developed primarily for the requirements of the automotive industry. "We are now making the first step. The future development hinges on how the market reacts to our products. The focus could be automotive or other industries," Yung said.

Home appliances remain a legitimate shot because the majority, such as air conditioners and washing machines, are white in color. The light white base color of MAGMUM resins are able to resist yellowing over a long period of time. She explained, "You may find that the cover of your home air conditioner turns yellow after a few years. Our material can last longer and looks less apparent."
