Manufacturers Use Innovative Celanese Polymers to Keep Fluids, Materials and Power Moving

At K 2016 Celanese showcases the tribology plastics energy, fluid handling and industrial sectors use to replace metal

DALLAS & DÜSSELDORF, Germany--()--Industrial manufacturers depend on a multitude of moving parts to keep the operations of machinery, products, fluids and power in motion. At K 2016, the world’s largest plastics tradeshow, Celanese Corporation (NYSE: CE), a global technology and specialty materials company, will highlight the polymers that help these manufacturers keep their machinery working smoothly and ensure the right products, fluids and energy are delivered when and where they are needed.

“The right choice of materials is critical to operational excellence, whether manufacturers are moving fluids through pipes, moving products along production lines, or moving energy from source to use,” said Todd Elliott, vice president of Material Solutions, Celanese. “We use more than 60 years of collective expertise in developing tribological polymers to help keep production moving smoothly and products delivered on time, which is why our customers see Celanese as the first choice for industrial-grade engineered materials.”

The extensive Celanese tribological portfolio of polymers includes the most advanced engineered materials to help meet current and emerging needs across industrial manufacturing sectors. In addition to getting the right polymer for the job, manufacturers also get access to the expertise of Celanese field development engineers who combine technical knowledge with industry experience to help customers around the world select the right tribological material that performs as well or better than metal under the most extreme operating conditions. Celanese customers also benefit from world-class lab and testing capabilities and facilities to help ensure proper material selection and part performance.

At K 2016, Celanese will highlight two strategies to successful movement of materials and fluids and the operational advantages of choosing an engineered material from Celanese:

  • Material handling: Whether moving packages and products on a conveyer or ensuring consistent machine operations, Celanese tribological polymers enable customers to move faster, boost up-time and service life, and protect products from manufacturing sites to points-of-use. Manufacturers require machine parts and conveyers made from tribological materials that are strong, durable, versatile and temperature- and chemical-resistant with lower friction than metal. Food processors and manufacturers of electronics, sports equipment and medical supplies use Celanese tribology materials that can eliminate the use of external grease or lubricants, dramatically reduce wear and friction, and significantly reduce or eliminate the amount of dirt and dust generated during operation.
  • Fluid handling: Celanese’s broad portfolio of engineered materials and technical expertise provides customers with solutions for fluid systems that have a high heat tolerance, are chemically resistant and are highly durable. These materials enable customers to develop fluid handling applications that maintain the flow and filtration of critical resources.

At K 2016, Celanese booth visitors will experience the Art of Material Selection as they learn about one of the world’s broadest polymer product lines for materials and fluid handling applications requiring tribological properties.
