Ticona to Exhibit Polymer Innovations at SAE Commercial Vehicle Congress


Ticona, a leading supplier of engineering polymers, is showcasing material innovations that help to reinvent transportation in Booth # 407 during the SAE 2012 Commercial Vehicle Engineering Congress Oct. 2 to 3 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Ill.

The exhibit will highlight Ticona high-performance engineering polymer and composite technologies that help manufacturers maintain margins as costs and competition increase. These polymer solutions offer superior performance throughout commercial vehicles:

· Powertrain - thermal, chemical and dimensional stability needed for advanced powertrain systems and components

· Interior - appearance and structural thermoplastics that meet technical, color and appearance requirements

· Exterior - excellent mechanical properties that withstand considerable mechanical loads along with UV stability, resistance to chemicals, corrosion and high temperatures

· Fuel Systems - diesel and bio-fuel resistant fuel components

· E/E and Lighting - temperature and chemical resistance, low off-gassing, flame resistant and halogen-free applications

Ticona delivers Performance Driven Solutions(TM) with a portfolio of high-performance engineering polymers that includes:

· Celanex® thermoplastic polyester (PBT)

· Celstran®, Compel® and Factor® long fiber reinforced thermoplastics (LFRT)

· Celstran continuous fiber reinforced thermoplastics (CFR-TP)

· Fortron® polyphenylene sulfide (PPS)

· Hostaform® / Celcon® acetal copolymer (POM)

· Impet® thermoplastic Polyester (PET)

· Riteflex® thermoplastic polyester elastomer (TPC-ET)

· Thermx® polycyclohexylene-dimethylene terephthalate (PCT)

· Vandar® thermoplastic polyester alloys (PBT)

· Vectra® / Zenite® liquid crystal polymer (LCP)
