Caulks and Sealants

Long-term adhesion and durability for interior and exterior applications. Designed for use with a variety of substrates, Trinseo’s SA, and all-acrylic polymers ensure excellent adhesion, flexibility, durability, and resistance to water, heat, and light aging.

Insulation Materials and Facer

For high-performance or general purpose, Trinseo’s low-VOC, low-odor solutions deliver superior adhesion, aging, and wet strength properties, while ensuring stability with casein formulations.

Food Packaging

Trinseo’s adhesives and coatings range for food packaging meets all requirements for food safety, and contributes to performance, consistent quality and operational efficiency. Trinseo only uses fully assessed raw materials and supports customers with complete documentation.

Pressure Sensitive

Trinseo’s diverse low-VOC, EH&S-compliant permanent- and removable-grade products can be combined with natural latex to improve performance, quality, and cost stability through a diversified raw-material base.

Wood Assembly/EPI

Non-formaldehyde adhesives produced for emulsion polymer isocyanate (EPI) systems offer excellent performance in dry and wet adhesion, thermal creep resistance, and formulation stability.

Primers

Trinseo primer polymers – for mineral and porous surfaces and anti-corrosion metal – improve the adhesion, penetration rate, chemical resistance, and efflorescence of topcoat solutions and control water vapor absorption and transmission rates.

Liquid Applied Membranes

Designed for efficiency and flexibility in indoor, outdoor, EIFS, and tunneling applications, Trinseo’s ANSI 118.10, 118.12 and ETAG-compliant products – also available in ammonia-free versions – balance water resistance and vapor transmission.

Tile Adhesives and Grouts

Trinseo’s line of SB and SAmastic adhesives provide excellent filler acceptance and viscosity control in compounding, as well as dry lap-shear and 28-day wet-shear adhesion performance.

Mortar

Ready-to-use adhesive for tile and stone, Trinseo’s line of SB and SA mastic adhesives provide excellent filler acceptance and viscosity control in compounding, as well as dry lap-shear and 28-day wet-shear adhesion performance.

Roof Coatings

With excellent dirt pickup resistance to ensure clean surfaces, Trinseo’s elastomeric latex for roof and wall coatings, offer a good balance of properties such as weatherability, elongation, water ponding resistance and asphalt bleed through resistance.

Playground and Running Track

For soil-stabilization applications, Trinseo offers high-quality binders for sports and playground surfaces, along with temporary road and dust-control products.

Masonry Coatings

Alkali resistant latex for a high quality exterior/interior concrete coatings that provides excellent protection against water intrusion, and provides efflorescence resistance. Acceptable for use over green concrete.

Abrasives and Pads

Improved properties and processability, Trinseo’s expanded portfolio, including new grades based on self-cross-linking polymers, delivers the high-temperature performance and chemical and water resistance required for specific abrasive applications.

Filtration

Distinct performance profiles, SB latex products from Trinseo provide distinct high-performance chemical resistance and removal efficiency profiles for automotive filtration.

Footwear and ENVERSA ™Foam

For improved durability, binders from Trinseo act as stiffeners and thermo-moldable polymers for insoles, heels, and other shoe components, enhancing the waterproofing characteristics of cellulosic or synthetic fiber substrates.

Roofing Mats

Trinseo’s binders offer high performance, resin flexibility, and more sustainable formulations, including formaldehyde-free systems, for long-term value.

Wall Coverings

Trinseo offers low-VOC solutions that ensure high UV and water resistance and excellent printability for a variety of interior applications.

Thermal insulation

Trinseo offers a range of latex binders, from soft to stiff, for thermal insulation materials (glass, mineral wool and wood panels). Trinseo’s binders provide optimal strength, stiffness/flexibility balance, and ageing resistance.

Glass Fiber Mesh

Available in formaldehyde-free variations and a range of stiffness and softness attributes, Trinseo products ensure high alkali resistance, processability, and quality consistency for exterior insulation and finish systems (EIFS), mortar/plaster, and road reinforcements.

Batteries

VOLTABOND™ Latex Binders products control the adhesion, ionic conductivity, water absorption, chemical resistance, and recharging characteristics that have a significant impact on the battery’s life cycle.
Cementitious Modifications Competitive performance Our products for cement modification deliver key properties – including compression set, strength, air entrainment control, flexibility, water resistance, and control of setting speed – while bringing innovative low-VOC, APEO-free solutions to the market.
Composites For wet-end processes and coatings Trinseo styrene butadiene and styrene acrylate binders are used in wet-end processes for ceiling tiles, flooring felts, regenerated materials, and other applications, including wood fiberboards.
Liquid Applied Membranes Efficiency in wide application range Designed for efficiency and flexibility in indoor, outdoor, and tunneling applications, our ETAG-compliant products – also available in ammonia-free versions – balance water resistance and vapor transmission.
