Celanese introduces PPS engineering polymer grades to Japanese market
Celanese, a global technology and specialty materials company, has announced the introduction of Celanese polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) to the Japanese market.
“Celanese PPS is a highly stable and durable polymer and is a primary reason why customers in the Japanese automotive industry, among others, specify parts made from this material,” says Hajime Suzuki, Celanese managing director for Japan.
Celanese PPS is a semi-crystalline polymer often used to replace metals and thermosets in various fluid handling, automotive, electrical/electronics, aerospace, and industrial and consumer applications.
Celanese will offer two PPS grades – the improved crystallisation evolution (ICE) PPS and the Flex PPS – in Japan
The ICE PPS grades are part of the PPS semi-crystalline polymer family temperature and corrosion resistant, while the Flex PPS offers high thermal, chemical, and permeation resistance, contains no plasticisers, and can be tailored to meet varying requirements.
Celanese manufactures PPS using advanced polymer technology and processes, which make the material suitable for high continuous-use temperatures.
Celanese PPS offers high dimensional stability, inherent flame resistance, and broad chemical resistance, including automotive/aircraft fuels and fluids, strong acids, and bases (pH 2 to 12) at elevated temperatures up to 240°C.
