EMERGE™ Advanced Resins


Trinseo’s EMERGE™ Advanced Resins feature innovative technology that provides solutions to many of the constant challenges that face the lighting industry including the need to balance light diffusion and transmission, light weight, and design aesthetically pleasing, cost effective housings.

“We’ve been developing custom polycarbonate-based solutions for the LED Lighting industry practically from the start of the LED trend. Our goal has always been to understand our customers’ needs and to develop material solutions to help them keep pace with and take advantage of the benefits of the technology.”
