Horgen/Switzerland — The pilot plant will begin operation in Q4 2017. According to the company, the pilot plant will quicken the development process from lab sample to commercialization and will also deliver sufficient quantities of new S-SBR formulations required for real-life tire testing. As a result, the faster testing process would accelerate the time to market for new performance tire innovations.

“The pilot plant demonstrates our long-standing commitment to and collaboration with our customers and is consistent with Trinseo’s strategy to grow our Performance Materials businesses,” said Hayati Yarkadas, Senior Vice President and Business President, Performance Materials.

“This strategic investment will allow us to be more agile and flexible than ever before in our ability to turn around S-SBR product testing,” said Samer Al Jabi, Global Business Director for Synthetic Rubber. “The pilot plant will be a valuable technology capability, enabling us to bring S-SBR materials to our customers more efficiently and help performance tire makers meet new market trends.”
