Trinseo Introduces Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPEs) for Medical Devices at MD&M West and Pharmapack

Company’s expanded portfolio now includes rigid and soft touch

(NYSE: TSE), a global materials solutions provider and manufacturer of
plastics, latex binders and synthetic rubber, will introduce its
portfolio of thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) for medical devices at two
major industry shows: MD&M West in Anaheim, Calif. from February 5-7 at
Booth 1986 and Pharmapack EU in Paris from February 6-7 at Booth D94.
This portfolio of TPEs complements Trinseo’s traditional rigid plastics
offering, making Trinseo a one-stop-shop for both hard and soft plastics.

Trinseo has supported the medical devices market for nearly three
decades and is known for superior product quality, outstanding
consistency, and a focus on customer compliancy requirements. The
expanded portfolio enhances Trinseo’s offering with soft touch materials
and overlays that are often needed with hard plastics.

TPEs can serve as a vinyl substitute. With their elastomeric
composition, TPEs can allow better handling of medical devices and
potentially increase performance, functionality, usability, and
aesthetics, while helping to improve patient care and contribute to
patient safety.

“We’ve brought together a very high quality portfolio of rigid plastics
with TPEs that have been specifically formulated for the medical devices
sector,” said Aldo Zanetti, business unit manager TPE Solutions –
Medical & Packaging for Trinseo. “This move helps us meet the needs of
medical customers, particularly as the industry addresses trends in
health care that require medical devices and equipment that are more
patient friendly and service provider friendly.”

Trinseo offers two styrenic block copolymers (TPSs) to the medical
devices industry under the brands MEGOL™
and RAPLAN™.
Materials are biocompatibility tested and available with full
biocompatibility (MED) and limited testing approved for skin contact
(SK), providing customers with the most economical material option,
since not all medical devices require full biocompatibility.

Trinseo’s rigid plastics for medical devices include:

Trinseo supports medical devices customers with material solutions for Single
