Ticona to Showcase Material Innovations at Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo


Ticona, the engineering polymers business of Celanese Corporation, is showcasing material innovations that are driving hybrid powertrain components and systems in Booth # 38 during the Electric Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo from Sept. 17 to 19 at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi. Mich.



The exhibit will highlight Ticona advanced polymer technologies that are producing innovative materials for:



• Hybrid and EV Vehicles - reduce weight to offset energy storage system mass and help improve fuel efficiency

• Fuel Systems - gasoline, diesel and bio-fuel resistant fuel components

• Electrical and Electronics - chemical resistant, flame resistant and halogen-free applications

• High Efficiency IC Engines - thermal, chemical and dimensional stability needed for advanced powertrain systems and components

• Energy Storage - separator films, battery cases, thermal management and power distribution



The Ticona product line of high-performance engineering polymers for electronic, energy storage, fuel system, power train and thermal management applications consists of:



• Celanex® thermoplastic polyester (PBT)

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

• Celstran continuous fiber reinforced thermoplastics (CFR-TP)

• Fortron® polyphenylene sulfide (PPS)

• GUR® ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMW-PE) · Hostaform® / Celcon® acetal copolymer (POM)

• Thermx® polycyclohexylene dimethylene terephthalate (PCT)

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



Visit the Automotive and Transportation section of the Ticona website to see how engineering thermoplastics are used across a range of emerging hybrid platforms, from gasoline-electric and diesel-electric vehicles to those powered by hydrogen and fuel cells. Read how Ticona engineering polymers offer a spectrum of advanced properties that include the exceptional electrical and mechanical performance, thermal and chemical resistance and dimensional stability demanded by electric and hybrid vehicle components.
