Celanese will add polyphenylene sulfide compounding line in China

Mary Page Bailey

Celanese Corp. (Irving, Tex.; www.celanese.com) has announced that the company will expand its compounding capabilities at its Nanjing, China, integrated chemical complex to include Fortron polyphenylene sulfide (PPS). The PPS compounding expansion is expected to be operational by year-end 2014.
 
“The Fortron PPS compounding expansion is part of the Celanese growth strategy to directly serve our customers in China and the broader Asia region, which are both experiencing impressive growth,” said Phil McDivitt, vice president and general manager of the engineered materials business of Celanese. “Leveraging our resources at the Nanjing facility – and our network of technical and sales support in China – accelerates our ability to deliver innovative solutions and grades, including the recently launched CES50, ICE, FLEX and our existing proven materials, which deliver value for our customers in Asia.”
 
Fortron PPS is a high-performance polymer that can withstand high thermal, chemical and mechanical stress and is used in a wide variety of applications. Fortron PPS is inherently flame retardant and does not require the use of halogen-containing flame retardants to achieve UL94 V0 rating. This semi-crystalline polymer is used to replace metals and thermosets.
