Berwyn, Pennsylvania – Trinseo SA has updated its apiplastic website with focus on footwear and fashion portfolio of products, manufactured at its production facility in Mussolente, Italy.
Available in both English and Italian, the website has been redesigned with a focus on the US and Italian markets, as the company is keen on expanding its role as a materials specialist beyond the traditional materials provider.
User experience has been improved, as the new layout is based on the end segments served in footwear (luxury & lifestyle, athletic, and professional), as well as fashion accessories, said Trinseo in a 7 Nov statement.
The website offers a range of Trinseo products, including:
Apilontm 52 Bio, a range of thermoplastic bioplastics (TPE-E or TPC), in both soft and rigid grades, developed to meet industry needs for sustainable, ethical resins.
Apilontm 52 A/C series, a recyclable TPU that represents “the best possible alternative” to vulcanised rubber in terms of thermo-abrasion resistance and production efficiencies, reducing production cycle time by up to 70%.
Apilontm 52 LIGHT, a recyclable TPU best suited to the production of midsoles, providing “an excellent combination” of performance and lightness.
“The redesigned website is just another step that we are taking towards growing our commitment to the fashion and footwear industry,” said Giancarlo Busa, global industry leader, TPE footwear.
Trinseo acquired the facility in Mussolente in 2017 as part of its acquisition of Italian compounder API.
The factory, according to Trinseo, is positioned at the heart of an area with a rich background of providing materials to the footwear and clothing industries, as well as close to the commercial hub of Venice.
