DALLAS and ATLANTA – Celanese Corporation (NYSE: CE), a global technology and specialty materials company – and four-time winner of the JEC Americas award for innovative composite applications – will be exhibiting and presenting a technical paper at the JEC Americas Composites Show & Conference May 13-15 in Atlanta.
"Celanese has a proven track record for developing composites that stand up to the most unique, challenging applications," said Michael Ruby, Celanese global composites business manager. "We look forward to collaborating with customers and discussing how Celanese products and solutions can create value in the composites manufacturing process."
Several examples of Celanese's successful composite applications will be on hand, including the C7™ Overhead Conductor with a multi-stranded composite core of Celstran® continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic rods (CFR-TPR) developed with Southwire Company LLC, North America's largest cable and wire producer. The Celanese Celstran CFR-TP / CFR-TPR product line is one of the broadest continuous fiber reinforced thermoplastics portfolios available today.
Celanese will also display various 2013 JEC award-winning applications, as well as various applications using Fortron® PPS (polyphenylene sulfide) as the composite matrix for use in light and tough components that can reduce weight, reduce cost and perform in extreme environments.
Greg Clark, global marketing manager of Celanese composites, will also be presenting a technical paper entitled "Development of a Monolithic, Thermoplastic Composite Type IV Pressure Vessel for Hydrogen Storage on Automobiles" at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 14. The technical presentation will discuss thermoplastic materials and process solutions that address issues with current onboard hydrogen storage technologies – including weight, cost, durability, hydrogen embrittlement, and fatigue – while reducing cost and weight, facilitating end-of-life recycling, and increasing use life.
