STYRON X-TECH™ Polystyrene Resin platform’s advanced proprietary technology offers a very high melt strength for HIPS and GPPS to produce end applications with improved performance characteristics.
Trinseo’s first product with this technology, STYRON X-TECH™ 2175 Polystyrene Resin, addresses the home appliance market’s increasing need for better performing liners. Reducing the liner thickness in freezers and refrigerators is achieved through a combination of high stiffness and very high melt strength. The enhanced thermoformability provides superior performance and processing benefits, including:
- Improved wall thickness distribution
- Broader processing windows
- Faster cycle times
- Better thermoforming features
- Improved rigidity and Environmental Stress Cracking Resistance (ESCR)
- Advanced down-gauging with a cost savings of up to 10%
STYRON X-TECH™ Polystyrene Resin platform is an advanced technology driving innovation for numerous polystyrene applications in the home appliances, packaging, and building and construction markets.
Trinseo offers a complete line of polystyrene materials in Europe and Asia Pacific. Polystyrene resins are available in North America through Americas Styrenics, a joint venture equally owned by Trinseo and Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LP.
