Celanese at Feiplastic 2015: to Exhibit Celstran® LFRT for Automotive & Aerospace Industries

Published on 2015-04-29. Author : SpecialChem

DALLAS and SAO PAULO -- Celanese Corporation one of the global technology and specialty Materials Company, announced it will exhibit its industry leading engineered materials and polymer solutions at Feiplastic, the international plastics trade event from May 4-8 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

At the event, Celanese will highlight its Celstran® long-fiber reinforced thermoplastics (LFRT) product advantages and capabilities. Many manufacturers in the automotive, consumer, industrial and aerospace industries choose Celstran® LFRT over conventional short-fiber reinforced thermoplastics because it is tough and resistant to chemicals, corrosion and high temperatures.

Manufacturers in these industries require metal replacement, strength and lightweight materials that results in improved performance and lower emissions. At the same time, it is critical they maintain design freedom and easy processing in low and high temperatures. Celstran® LFRT meets all of these requirements while also allowing stunning textures and surface appearance in a variety of mold-in colors, including metallic and chromes that eliminate the need for paint.

Celanese’s Celstran® LFRT material unites long-fiber reinforcements with advanced thermoplastic resins for a combination of mechanical properties, impact, creep resistance and low warpage. Manufacturers use Celstran® LFRT in products consumers use every day such as car instrument panels and gear shift levers, home appliances, power tools, piping, seating systems in airplanes, and much more.
