July 9, 2018

BERWYN, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 9, 2018--Trinseo (NYSE: TSE), a global materials solutions provider and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders and synthetic rubber, is celebrating the 30-year anniversary of its pilot coating facility in Midland, Michigan (USA).

Trinseo’s Midland Pilot Coating Plant has a long history of experience dating back to 1960. In July 1988, the Company opened a completely new, state-of-the-art pilot coating facility at the site. Constructed and designed to house the most advanced pilot coating machinery, the Midland pilot coating facility was a marvel then as it is today solving the unique market, applications and processing needs of the paper and board industry. Since 1988, more than 2,000 customer trials have been completed at the Midland facility, demonstrating the great commitment of the latex binder business to collaborate with the paper and board industry.

With two world-class pilot plants in Midland, Michigan, and Samstagern, Switzerland, Trinseo is ideally equipped to study paper and board coating and finishing processes in a well-controlled environment. Both modern coating facilities play an important role in Trinseo’s customer-oriented product development and demonstrate our deep commitment to the industry.

“Trinseo has the equivalent of over 100 years of pilot coater expertise between its two facilities as a company,” says Greg Welsch, Global Binders Application Technology Leader, Trinseo. “Our two strategically located pilot coater facilities ensure access to high-quality technical support and technological innovation from Trinseo.”

Through pilot trials, Trinseo is able to put innovative new products to the test to ensure that the highest quality end products can be produced. Trinseo offers a full range of binder chemistry, from being a major supplier of styrene butadiene latex to its current position in starch containing emulsions, acrylic and vinyl acrylate chemicals.

Please contact your Trinseo representative to discuss opportunities to collaborate together.
