Profile: The origins of Celanese date back to 1912 and the production of fireproof celluloid in Switzerland. Today, Celanese is a global technology and specialty chemicals company with activities covering end use markets from automotive to medical. In the compounding area, Celanese has recently expanded its portfolio with two major acquisitions: Italy’s So.F.TER Group in December 2016 and Israel’s Nilit Plastics in February 2017.


Product line: The Advanced Engineering Materials division of Celanese (formally Ticona Engineering Polymers but renamed under the Celanese brand in 2013) produces a range of engineering resins including POM, PBT, LCP, UHMWPE and long fibre reinforced compounds. So.F.TER Group adds PP, PA, ABS, PC/ ABS, HI-PS, PC, PPE, and SAN compounds to the portfolio; Nilit Plastics will further expand the PA and PBT compound business.


Product strengths: The acquisition of Nilit will give Celanese a particularly strong position in flame retardant grades. It also offers a special range of irradiation cross linked PA and high flow PA66 compounds.
