DALLAS & SHANGHAI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Celanese Corporation (NYSE: CE), a global specialty materials company, recently showcased its broad engineered materials product portfolio at Chinaplas 2018, Asia’s largest plastics trade fair, held in Shanghai April 24-27 at the National Exhibition and Convention Center.
“With more than 50 years of technical and manufacturing expertise, Celanese is a trusted development partner and first-choice solution source globally, with one of the world’s broadest thermoplastics portfolios on the market,” said Mark Oberle, senior vice president, Europe and Asia. “Expanding through recent acquisitions and polymer innovations, Celanese has further strengthened its leadership position in the engineered materials market to become a global elastomers and nylon compounding provider as well.”
At Chinaplas, Celanese presented four new polymer innovations to further demonstrate the Art of Material Selection, including:
- Low-Emission Hostaform® XLE POM: offers more than 100 times reduction in formaldehyde emissions over standard POM (acetal copolymer) and allows parts suppliers and original equipment manufacturers to meet strict formaldehyde-emission guidelines, such as GB/T 27630, for automotive interior components.
- Low-Odor Celstran® XLE™ LFRT: provides superior odor and VOC emission performance and allows for the use of long-fiber enhanced thermoplastics in large automotive parts without significantly increasing overall odor or VOC levels of vehicle interiors.
- Celapex® PEEK Ultra High Flow with Expanded Portfolio Grades: addresses a wide variety of injection molding processing issues by providing a broad range of solutions for a wide variety of application flow requirements. The Ultra High Flow PEEK grade enables molding of thin wall, intricate parts and long flow length components at lower injection pressure and lower melt temperature for enhanced productivity at lower conversion costs.
- Zenite® SEA Series: improves high-end compact camera modules in portable devices with less particle, good dimensional stability and mechanical properties enabling thin wall design, molding consistency and productivity.
