Trinseo PULSE™ XT70 Passes Rigorous Testing in Monolayer Paint System

The Polycarbonate - Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene resin shows positive results during testing phase providing car manufacturers with new option for premium aesthetics in exterior applications

BERWYN, Pa. - Thursday, August 23, 2018

Trinseo (NYSE: TSE), a global materials solutions provider and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders and synthetic rubber, announced test results which show that its PC/ABS resin, PULSE™ XT70, performs well in a monolayer paint system without sacrificing the durability of the final product.

Due to its optimized particle stability, PULSE™ XT70 did not result in typical paint defects such as adhesion and cohesion failure or stress cracking issues under the influence of chemicals when tested by FCS Sonneborn.

Screening tests against OEMs measurements and requirements, carried out by the company, included a full-blown paint adhesion test, which showed that PULSE™ XT70 enables an exquisite aesthetic finish. They also included a peel-off test, power wash test, chip resistance test and artificial and natural weathering test.

These findings mean that OEMs who select PULSE™ XT70 as a substrate for their exterior parts can consider using a monolayer paint system that is less costly and time consuming than a three-layer system in which a primer layer, a base color and a finishing layer are applied.

“We consider this a breakthrough in our collaboration with both the OEM and FCS,” said Maurice Laurijs, Technical Service and Development Specialist. “We’re also confident that the performance of the monolayer paint system will lead to other OEMs also approving PULSE™ XT70. FCS supplies many high-class OEMs, including PSA, Renault, Fiat Chrysler, Honda, Aston Martin, and McLaren.”

This development clearly shows that Trinseo's know-how goes well beyond its core expertise. The Company views car-making and automotive design as a holistic process and values cross-industry cooperation to research and develop the best possible solutions.
