Celanese Corporation

Fortron polyphenylene sulfide (PPS), used as composite matrix, is strong, rigid and tough, with superior FST and high-temperature performance. Celstran continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composite (CFR-TP) tapes, rods and profiles provide stiffness/toughness, high-performance dimensional, mechanical/thermal properties, and superior chemical/corrosion resistance.

As Seen In CompositesWorld

Thermoplastic composites in aerospace – the future looks bright
The real impediment to use of thermoplastic composites in critical control surfaces is an education gap.

Delivering the potential of thermoplastic composites
Why has the adoption of TPCs been slower than expected, and who is best placed to accelerate it?

CFRP differential carrier

Metal + composite = Less weight, more room
Global supplier develops scaled design approach for metal/composite hybrids in highly loaded automotive applications.

Small companies, long-term impact
In a time known for owner “exit strategies,” longevity in family-owned composites businesses is heartening.

Thermoplastic composites technology: A view from Europe
For this Dutch consortium, bringing the manufacturability of thermoplastic materials to maturity is the goal in concert with OEMs, materials and equipment supplier members.

DuraStor/HOST participants
In 2010, a multi-partner, multi-year research program called Low Cost, Durable Thermoplastic Hydrogen Storage Tanks, or DuraStor, was formed to address these problems by investigating a drop-in replacement for Type IV tanks. A UK-only program called Hydrogen – Optimisation of Storage and Transfer (HOST) picked up where DuraStor left off in mid-2014. These were the participants.

Thermoplastic composite pressure vessels for FCVs
U.K. consortiums address durability, weight, cost of high-pressure tanks for hydrogen fuel-cell powered vehicles.

SAMPE Europe 2013/JEC Europe 2013 highlights
Held concurrently, these two seminal European composites events weathered a rare Parisian snowstorm to plumb the depth and breadth of the industry.

Hybrid thermoplastic molding: Toughening automotive composites
Tailored D-LFT with continuous and discontinuous glass offers best combination of strength, moldability.

JEC 2013 at first blush

Under the hood: Thermoplastics tackle tough jobs
Reinforced plastics save weight and cost, increase underhood productivity.

Interior innovation: The value proposition
OEMs and Tier suppliers ask materials and molding processes to go “green” and do more for less.

SAMPE 2010 Seattle Showcase
SAMPE’s first-ever foray into Boeing Country wrapped up with the M&P organization’s biggest draw this decade.
