A new conference brings together the leaders in this emerging field of technology.
Thermoplastic composites on the forefront for Celanese.
Celanese material scientists have developed various traceability technologies to help customers avoid significant losses due to missed business opportunities, image-loss of brand, unwarranted claims for damages and patent infringement.
Find out at a brand-new conference this June in Novi, Mich.
Using Fortron PP and ceramics, Bomat's heat exchanger is said to be the first that has no metal in the exhaust-gas section
There was no shortage of interesting materials developments at K 2013, in particular high-performance engineering thermoplastics and thermoplastic composites—much of them geared to automotive/transportation.
Here’s just a taste of the innovations on display, a selection of the top headlines not covered in our September show preview.
WEB EXCLUSIVE: At K 2013, Celanese takes metal replacement into a wholly new application—a kitchen oven.
WEB EXCLUSIVE: Celanese Corp. (formerly Ticona Engineering Polymers) has developed a grade of Fortron PPS that is said to be the first for use with 3D robotic-manipulated blow molding of tubular automotive components with complex geometries.
WEB EXCLUSIVE: Celanese Corp. (formerly Ticona Engineering Polymers) introduced at K 2013 a flexible acetal copolymer for fuel-system pipes and tubes that require enhanced mechanical characteristics.
Move applies to engineered plastics such as Hostaform/Celcon acetal, GUR UHMW-PE, and Celstran long-fiber reinforced thermoplastics, among others.
Celstran continuous-fiber reinforced thermoplastic composite (CFR-TP) from Ticona, Florence, Ky., is used in the new Fiberflex-11 pressure pipe from Composite Fluid Transfer of Kilgore, Texas.
WEB EXCLUSIVE: Ticona’s Fortron FX432T1 PPS now complies with U.S. FDA and EU food-contact regulations, allowing its use for food handling applications such as conveyor systems.
Ultra-flat OLED module uses LCP with laser direct structuring in MID
WEB EXCLUSIVE: Ticona, Florence, Ky., has developed a new blend technology that is said to overcome issues with previous impact-modified acetals.
WEB EXCLUSIVE: Samtec, Inc., New Albany, Ind., a worldwide manufacturer of electronic interconnects, is using two families of liquid-crystal polymers from Ticona, Florence, Ky., in its new Seam/Seaf Series of high-speed, high-density connectors.
WEB EXCLUSIVE: New high-temperature and highly reflective resins from two suppliers are engineered for growing LED markets in display backlighting and general lighting: •DSM Engineering Plastics of the Netherlands (U.S. office in Evansville, Ind.) has added a new grade of its unique nylon 4T for LED applications.
New barrier materials for small fuel tanks, tooling developments for large, flat, and odd-shaped industrial parts, new all-electric machines for large containers, and gravimetric extrusion control for bottles are some of the topics discussed at the recent SPE Blow Molding Div. annual conference in Pittsburgh.
The potential for new or unusual materials to broaden the application potential of standard plastics processes was explored in a number of papers at April’s SPE ANTEC conference in Orlando, Fla.
WEB EXCLUSIVE: Ticona Engineering Polymers, Florence, Ky., has added a new family of high-flow grades of halogen-free, flame-retardant Vectra LCPs for use in portable electronic devices.
