MAGNUM™ 3616 outperformed a dozen competing materials
Our high-heat ABS resin MAGNUM™ 3616 meets the high requirements for the doors in the new Audi A8.
Steven Liu, Trinseo Commercial Leader Automotive Business, Asia Pacific is excited: "We are very proud that we are now also manufacturing our ABS in Zhangjiagang. With our new MAGNUM™ ABS Resins production line we underline our leading position as an unrivaled and sustainable partner for global consistency with steady growth."
Trinseo has highly efficient manufacturing sites with proven track records of operating excellence. In November 2017, we reinforced our long-term commitment to have local production of our global products in all major regions for the automotive business: We proudly started the production of our MAGNUM™ ABS Resins in Zhangjiagang, China. Trinseo MAGNUM™ ABS Resins offer superior quality and have a long and very successful history in automotive exterior and interior applications for all OEMs in North America and Europe.
"Our MAGNUM™ grades are suitable for exterior parts such as spoilers, mirror housings, and bumper brackets. They enhance the automotive interior experience and are in use to produce interior parts like mid/center consoles, instrument panels, door trim panels, and armrests," Steven Liu explains.
MAGNUM™ ABS Resins help designers and molders to differentiate their applications and provide high end-user satisfaction. Now the high-quality MAGNUM™ ABS product range is being produced in China, providing the same premium performance globally.
We manufacture MAGNUM™ ABS Resins with the proprietary mass polymerization technology which provides low gloss, low odor and excellent consistent material quality for the automotive industry. The unique polymerization technology also results in low residual, consistent white base color resins enabling customers to improve their productivity and reduce their coloring costs.
Consumers demand high quality interiors with low odor, durability and superb driving experience, while OEMs demand high production efficiency, high quality and low cost.
The high thermal stability of MAGNUM™ ABS Resins enable low VOC levels and allow for a wide processing window.
Its low residual features facilitate manufacturers to achieve low odor and high production efficiency.
The low gloss features allow designers to use fine textures and enhance the aesthetics and durability of the vehicle’s interior.
The excellent consistency and low base color enable tiers to use color concentrates allowing for reduced coloring cost and improved production efficiency.
Its high lot-to-lot color consistency, low base color and high thermal stability make MAGNUM™ ABS Resins ideal for self-coloring. The advanced properties and features of MAGNUM™ ABS Resins enable significant cost savings on coloring for our customers without a loss of product quality.
MAGNUM™ ABS Resins are much lighter than most competitive resins. One of the benefits of its consistent natural white base color is that less pigment is required to produce white or light colors.
Easy and cost-efficient coloring via color concentrates can help our customers avoid minimum order quantity (MOQ) requirements for small lots of different colors. It also leads to fewer remaining scraps, which reduces raw material costs.
Warehouse rental fees can be substantial. When it is not necessary to store a wide range of pre-color resins as safety stock, our customers can significantly reduce inventory and warehouse space costs.
Adopting self-coloring allows our customers to avoid keeping and managing many different lots of colors. Customer requests can also be responded to with greater ease and efficiency.
