CALIBRE™ MEGARAD™ Polycarbonate Resins for Devices Requiring Sterilization

CALIBRE™ MEGARAD™ Polycarbonate (PC) Resins are an advanced material for devices requiring gamma or electron-beam irradiation.
During these irradiation processes, it is typical for polycarbonate to become discolored. CALIBRE™ MEGARAD™ Polycarbonate Resins from Trinseo use our patented color-compensation technology to dramatically improve color recovery following irradiation with a technology that has proven to be successful for over 25 years.

Trinseo offers a range of polycarbonate polymer tints that are designed to provide the appropriate amount of color compensation for a select number of irradiation sterilization cycles to meet final desired color specifications.

MAGNUM™ ABS Resins Produced with Mass Polymerization Technology

For decades, MAGNUM™ ABS Resins from Trinseo have helped designers and fabricators differentiate their products and provide end-user satisfaction.
Trinseo’s MAGNUM™ ABS Resins are manufactured with continuous mass polymerization technology as opposed to an emulsion process. This yields a resin with a highly consistent, white color base resulting in a very cost efficient resin for self-coloring.  In addition it also results in a purer polymer.

With many advantages, MAGNUM™ ABS Resins are preferred by cross-industry designers. Our thermoplastic materials provide an excellent balance of processability, impact resistance, and heat resistance.

Thermally stable with a wide processing window, MAGNUM™ ABS Resins ensure excellent processability. The superior natural whiteness of the resins makes in-house coloring easy, requiring less pigment.

Medical devices made of MAGNUM™ ABS Resins can be sterilized by gamma radiation, ethylene oxide (EtO) gas, and electron beam radiation and will maintain their essential properties following exposure. (Steam autoclave is not recommended.)

STYRON™ Polystyrene Resins

For over 75 years, the family of STYRON™ Polystyrene from Trinseo has continued to evolve and remain a strong option for a diverse range of applications.
The incredible versatility of polystyrene (PS) polymers has allowed their use in everything from insulation materials and television housings to refrigerator liners and plastic service ware.

Our line of polystyrene materials includes:

STYRON™ General-Purpose Polystyrene (GPPS) offers performance and processing that make these resins well suited for clear or foamed applications in packaging and sheet and profile extrusion.
STYRON™ High-Impact Polystyrene (HIPS) combines toughness with other features, such as gloss and processability, for packaging and home appliances. Trinseo’s family of HIPS resins also includes STYRON A-TECH™ Polystyrene, STYRON™ C-TECH Polystyrene, and STYRON™ X-TECH Polystyrene for advanced levels of performance.
Trinseo offers a complete line of polystyrene materials in Europe and Asia Pacific. Polystyrene resins are available in North America through Americas Styrenics, a joint venture equally owned by Trinseo and Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LP.
