Celanese expands TPC unit


Celanese is to expand its Pibiflex and Riteflex thermoplastic co-polyester (TPC) production unit at the Donegani facility in Ferrara, Italy. The company had


started up an additional solid-state polymerisation unit at the facility in September 2018; it now expects to add a further line in the next 15-18 months. TPCs combine the


characteristics of vulcan- ised rubber with the easy processability of thermo- plastics. � www.celanese.com


capacity across the company’s four existing sites in Japan, China, South- East Asia and Europe. PPS compounds are used widely as


alternatives to metals in automotive components and other products where their thermal and chemical resistance and dimensional stability are valued. The global market is expected to grow by 20% from 2017 to 2021, due to


increased use in vehicle electrical systems and in hybrid and electric vehicles. Mehran Yazdani, President of Sun


Chemical Advanced Materials, said the decision to invest is “our response in meeting the expanding demand for PPS in North America and ensures a stable supply and shortened lead times”. � www.sunchemical.com

BASF’s Ultramid PA meets fuel cell demands


BASF’s Ultramid A3WG10 CR and A3EG7 EQ grades of glass fibre- reinforced PA are being used to make parts for fuel cell systems in the new Mercedes GLC F-Cell, which combines a fuel cell with a recharge- able lithium-ion battery. The company worked with Joma-Polytec and Mercedes-Benz Fuel


Cell on the project. The two glass fibre-reinforced Ultramid grades are used to manufacture the anode and cathode end plates in the fuel cells. The Ultramid A3EG7 EQ grade is also used to produce the media distribution plate and the water separator unit, which is exposed to a wide variety of media through the cooling water, air and hydrogen channel. � www.plastics.basf.com
