Since November 2017, Trinseo has been producing MAGNUM™ ABS Resins in Zhangjiagang, China. MAGNUM™ ABS is a well-known and highly appreciated product among European and North American OEMs. With the opening of the Chinese production facility, Trinseo is bringing the material, which is suitable for a variety of internal and external applications, to another important region of the automotive industry.

As part of this year's Chinaplas in Shanghai, the Trinseo Zhangjiagang ABS plant is celebrating an Open Day on April 26 2018. We will be giving customers a valuable insight into the new site - including lunch, technical presentations, and a factory visit. We will of course also take care of your transportation from Shanghai to the plant and back.

Therefore, the production of MAGNUM™ ABS in China figures prominently in our business strategy. MAGNUM™ ABS Resins provide remarkable quality and have a long and very successful history in automotive applications due to their outstanding benefits.

Benefits of MAGNUM™ ABS resins for automotive applications, are a.o:
