Product Announcement from Celanese Corporation
Reliable, Versatile and Cost-Effective Hydrolysis-Resistant Polyesters help deliver superior performance in high humidity, high heat and aggressive chemical environments with an excellent cost-to-performance ratio for Automotive, Marine, Solar and Electrical applications.
Ticona's HR polyester grades can help address failure concerns associated with:
■■ Salt spray
■■ Aggressive car wash chemicals
■■ Road treatment solutions, including Geomelt
■■ High heat, high humidity environments
Ticona polyester HR grades provide outstanding chemical resistance, making them ideal candidates for automotive, industrial, marine and solar components, just to name a few.
Ticona polyesters are UL rated with continuous use temperatures up to 140°C, and are available in a range of stiffnesses. They can provide UL 94 V-0 flammability ratings down to 0.8mm and are chosen for use in many electrical components in tough environments.
Unlike nylon, polyester exhibits excellent electrical insulation properties, with low variation due to moisture content. HR grades can show sustained property performance in harsh environments, where alternatives can show micro-cracking and become brittle.
