Trinseo (TSE) Unveils PFAS-Free Flame-Retardant Plastic Grades

Trinseo PLC TSE has introduced flame-retardant EMERGE PC 8600PV and 8600PR resins, as well as EMERGE PC/ABS 7360E65 resins, which are produced without the use of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) or halogenated additives. Many PFAS compounds are widely used due to their crucial flame-retardant qualities, as well as their resistance to heat, oil, stains, grease and water.

These new offerings maintain those important performance characteristics while responding to increasing demand and regulatory requirements to minimize the usage of PFASs, particularly in the consumer electronics and electrical industries. These products will be launched first in the Asia-Pacific market and are appropriate for a wide range of applications, including IT equipment, electronic and electrical products, battery chargers and voltage stabilizers.

The company is accelerating the development of products that do not include PFAS or halogenated additives by leveraging its significant knowledge and technological skills in post-consumer recycled (PCR) products, as well as its deep insights into the consumer electronics and electrical industries. This is done in response to the market's need to transition toward sustainably advantageous solutions.

Both the EMERGE 8600PR and the EMERGE 7360E65 use PCR substrates to achieve performance similar to virgin materials. Trinseo has not intentionally added PFAS to its manufacturing process, and the recycled content aids in waste reduction, carbon footprint reduction and recycling in the consumer electronics industry.

Shares of Trinseo have lost 82.5% over the past year compared with 21.2% decline of its industry.
