Styron at Strategies in Light EU: Launches Advanced Resins for LED Lighting Applications

Published on 2014-10-22. Author : SpecialChem

BERWYN, PA -- Styron, the global materials company and manufacturer of plastics, latex and rubber, showcases its plastics for the LED Lighting industry at Strategies in Light Europe 2014 in Booth A14 at the M.O.C. Event Center in Munich, Germany from October 21 - 23, 2014.

Styron also launches its EMERGE™ 8830 Advanced Resins, an innovative material that balances transparency, flame retardancy and thickness — three key performance properties necessary as the market continues to move toward thinner gauge applications. The material is UL94 rated V-0 at 1.0mm and 5VA at 2.5mm and is the next generation advancement in Styron's EMERGE™ 8000 series.

Styron offers a broad portfolio for LED Lighting Applications under the CALIBRE™ Polycarbonate Resins and EMERGE™ Advanced Resins brands. This includes transparent, light diffusion and ignition resistant grades used in lenses, optics, diffusers, reflectors and housings.

During the show, Styron's Global Director of Research & Development from North America, Tony Samurkas, discusses Materials for LED Lighting Application. The presentation takes place on October 23rd in Room K4 at M.O.C. Center.

"Styron's global footprint is truly an advantage in the LED Lighting market," said Global Business Director, Philippe Belot. "We have technical and production resources that allow us to coordinate application development, product availability and technical support worldwide and this is especially critical since applications are often specified in one region and manufactured in another."

Styron previously announced plans to change the name of all Styron affiliated companies to Trinseo, NYSE: TSE. Some, but not all, of the Styron companies have completed the name change process and are currently known as Trinseo; Styron companies that have not completed this process will continue to do business as Styron until their respective name changes are complete. Styron's operating companies also continue to do business as Styron at this time.
