Trinseo announces expanded custom medical compounding in Asia


This new production and fulfillment model features custom medical compounding in Asia Pacific to expand existing medical compounding in North America and Europe. These facilities are sourced with polycarbonate base resins from Trinseo’s highest quality, medically-equivalent resins produced in Germany and also by its joint venture partner, Japan-based Sumika Styron Polycarbonate Ltd. (Tokyo), said the company.
   
“Trinseo can now produce and offer global OEMs medically-equivalent compounds with its Calibre Polycarbonate Resins in Asia Pacific,” said Martin Lindway, Global Medical Business Manager. “Companies and sourcing managers need exceptional quality in a cost effective solution, and regional regulatory and technical support services for compliance, speed to market and security of supply. Trinseo’s new global production and fulfillment model is focused on meeting these three critical needs.”
   
Trinseo is also highlighting its Magnum ABS Resins and Emerge Advanced Resins for single- and multiple-use devices and equipment housings. These materials address some of the industry’s critical challenges, including the need for home health care, point of care devices, drug delivery, and wearable devices, the company noted.
   
During MD&M West, Trinseo announced results from its recent collaboration with Henkel Corp. (Düsseldorf, Germany), the market leader in adhesives, sealants and functional coatings. Henkel and Trinseo tested the compatibility of various Trinseo plastics and Henkel adhesives and found that when used together the materials optimize application assembly.
