Driving sustainable styrenics
At INEOS Styrolution, we design our products to make a valuable contribution for our customers and society. We achieve this by taking a responsible approach to our portfolio along the entire value chain – from procurement, development and production to transport and sales, and from integration into customer processes to intended use. We want to offer styrenic solutions that deliver a strong sustainability performance and render our customers’ businesses as well as end consumers’ choices more sustainable. Together with customers and the scientific community, we engage in collaborative innovation of cutting-edge sustainable products. By driving product stewardship and quality management, we ensure compliance with product regulations and deliver safe, best-quality and high-performance products to our customers. Together with associations and our business partners, we are striving to achieve high and well-acknowledged sustainability standards in the styrenics industry.
Styrenics: A multitalented material with sustainable benefits
Superior performance and physical durability make our styrenics attractive for manufacturers along the entire automotive value chain. In addition, their low density compared to other engineering plastics makes them a sustainable solution for lightweight parts – helping minimize vehicle weight, and in turn increasing fuel efficiency. Combined with outstanding aesthetics due to low shrinkage and warpage, this explains why styrenics are the material of choice for many applications from rearview mirror housings and instrument panel trims to front grills and rear light housings.
Although INEOS Styrolution’s materials are not always immediately recognizable where we live and work, they play an essential role in the building and construction industry. Our styrenics not only increase the value of buildings with, for example, UV stability at moderate cost, they also enable insulation and improve the quality of life for those who live in them, due to their high performance over a long life. In addition to their technical benefits, styrenics fundamentally improve the appearance of products – whether it is door panels, window profiles, decking or roof tiles.
Whether they are being used for syringe bodies, drip chambers, inhalers, or labware – INEOS Styrolution healthcare applications offer a wide range of benefits to the customer. These include excellent impact strength, chemical resistance and ease of processing. We ensure utmost quality standards and commitment to product safety. By offering various healthcare packages, we offer designated products with one of the most comprehensive set of regulatory standards when compared to other resin suppliers. Through fixed resin formulations, various biocompatibility studies and adherence to regulatory standards around the world, we provide safe, superior products for the healthcare market. Our products are well balanced since they are designed to meet the physical demands of a targeted application, comply with existing regulatory standards while being aesthetically pleasing in the final product.
Our styrenics offer various advantages making them the material of choice for a vast number of household products where chemical and hot water resistance, shiny surfaces, stiffness and toughness are required. Their exceptional aesthetics provide excellent color consistency, and high gloss to many household products. Through a combination of high-quality products and cost-efficient production processes, we make technology more affordable – including for customers in emerging markets. Refrigerators, microwave ovens, coffee machines, air conditioners and mixers are just a few examples of the diverse styrenic applications for home appliances.
Wherever you find electricity in your home, you will find our plastics. Styrenics make electrical and electronic devices safer, lighter and more durable. Cost-efficient processability makes devices made from styrenics more affordable. INEOS Styrolution’s products provide a wide range of benefits for this industry that can hardly be matched by other materials, such as chemical resistance, stiffness, toughness, aesthetic surfaces and high dimensional stability.
Food packaging is not only a practical aid, it is also indispensable in protecting products: It keeps food fresher for a longer time which, in turn, helps reduce waste. Packaging materials must be hygienic, and must also ensure that the taste and quality of the foods remains unaffected. Our product portfolio ensures just that, offering suitable materials for everything from food packaging films to cups for beverages and fruits.
Driving product stewardship for safe, top-quality products
Chemical products such as styrene can involve risks when not handled properly. Therefore, complying with product regulations and delivering safe, top-quality products to our customers is at the heart of our business. INEOS Styrolution takes its responsibility very seriously for ensuring the safety of end consumers, business partners, employees and contractors who process our materials along the value chain.
