Whatever your product challenge, chances are a Ticona Engineering Polymers can help you meet it. Their engineered materials help designers reduce component weight, consolidate parts and meet tough specifications. Beyond high performance thermoplastics, they offer critical design and engineering support throughout the product development cycle. It is no wonder manufacturers at every level turn to Ticona for the technical solutions they need.
Ticona Delivers a Complete Portfolio of Engineering Polymers
Celcon® and Hostaform® acetal copolymer (POM)
Deliver outstanding wear, long-term fatigue and creep resistance down to -40°C. Exhibit excellent toughness and rigidity, along with moisture, solvent and alkali resistance.
Celanex® thermoplastic polyester (PBT)
Fast-cycling resin with high strength, rigidity and toughness, offering low creep even at high temperatures, as well as excellent dimensional stability, low moisture absorption and powerful insulation resistance. Also offers resistance to a wide range of chemicals, solvents, oils and greases.
Vectra® liquid crystal polymer (LCP)
Highly crystalline, thermotropic (melt-orienting) thermoplastics that can deliver exceptionally precise and stable dimensions, high service temperature to 240°C and chemical resistance in very thin-walled applications.
Riteflex® thermoplastic polyester elastomer (TPC-ET)
Provides the softness, flexibility and resistance of rubber with good chemical resistance, toughness, impact strength, as well as tear and flex-fatigue resistance between -40°C and 121°C.
Fortron® polyphenylene sulfide (PPS)
Often chosen over metals and thermosets, it’s a dimensionally stable, hard and rigid polymer that withstands temperatures to 200°C. It has excellent chemical, creep and moisture resistance and is flame retardant.
Celstran® and Compel® long fiber reinforced thermoplastics (LFRT)
Provide superior mechanical integrity in large parts and structural profiles. Long fibers of glass, carbon, aramid or stainless steel are chemically coupled to a base resin to offer excellent dimensional stability, impact strength, rigidity and fatigue resistance.
Impet® thermoplastic polyester (PET)
Outstanding physical properties and superior thermal and chemical resistance, with the added ability to support higher temperature exposure.
Vandar® thermoplastic polyester alloy (PBT)
Combines high ductility and good stiffness with the excellent chemical and thermal resistance of polyester.
GUR® ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMW-PE)
Excellent wear resistance, extremely high notched impact strength, low friction loss values, high energy absorption at high stress rates, excellent chemical resistance, very good noise reduction, biocompatibility and light weight (0.930 g/cm3).
