TSRC Corporation, an international company specializing in synthetic rubber, is a long-time exhibitor of CHINAPLAS.

The company's Senior Vice President of Advanced Materials Division, Hendrick Lam, noticed that the global TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomers) market has grown by 4.2% in 2018 and the momentum is expected to thrive until 2024.

“At TSRC, a leading producer of TPE, we are riding on a wave of this growing trend to enhance our TPE business. We will focus on specialty products and expand our manufacturing capability to offer products of improved quality and reliability to our customers,” he commented.

Despite staggering growth around the world, he sees a promising future in China. “Although the IMF (International Monetary Fund) has cut its global GDP growth forecast to 3.3%, it has raised China¡¯s growth forecast to 6.2%, citing China’s effort to support its economy and its improved outlook on the trade conflicts with the US.”

In the short term, TSRC aims to provide high value-added and high profit products. “TSRC strategically focuses on new applications and new platform developments. We take pride in our commitment to collaborating with our customers, developing innovative products and maintaining good relationships with business partners,” he said.

Innovative medical-grade products

TSRC is showcasing Vector 8101, designed for the medical industry as an alternative to vulcanized rubber through its eco-friendly features. Used as plastic modifiers for medical applications such as syringe plunger tips, closures and stoppers, it has passed cytotoxicity testing and is well-suited for general modifications of articles for medical applications.

Specifically, Vector 8101 is a 32% styrene content SEBS (Styrene-Ethylene/Butadiene-Styrene) with medium-to-high molecular weight. By using TSRC technology, its ash content has been lowered to meet pharmacopeia requirements of <0.1%. It has passed ISO 10993-5 and USP class VI testing, and is produced in a plant that complies with medical GMP management.

“With our new SEBS line to be launched in Nantong, China, a series of medical-grade products will be gradually introduced into the market,” he added.

He revealed that the company’s new SEBS line is going to commence operation in Q4 of 2019. Constructed with state-of-the-art technology, this 20,000 ton-capacity facility will consist of an advanced SEBS line, which will meet the increasing quality demands of the market and deliver valued-added products to customers around the globe.
