Celanese Corporation, a global technology and specialty materials company, will be delivering technical presentations about new Fortron® PPS (polyphenylene sulfide) productivity and processing properties for automotive applications at the ITB Automotive Engine Air and Cooling Systems 2014 conference on Thursday, June 5 at the Sheraton Detroit Novi Hotel in Novi, Michigan.
Fortron PPS is a semi-crystalline polymer often used to replace metals and thermosets in various automotive, electrical/electronics, aerospace, fluid handling, and industrial and consumer applications.
Using advanced polymer technology and processes, Celanese manufactures Fortron PPS, which is designed to excel at high continuous-use, under-hood temperatures. Fortron PPS offers excellent dimensional stability, inherent flame resistance and broad chemical resistance — including automotive/aircraft fuels and fluids, strong acids and bases (pH 2 to 12) — even at elevated temperatures up to 240 degrees Celsius (464 degrees Fahrenheit).
Visit Fortron PPS to learn how Celanese develops a leading composite solution that can replace aluminum, steel and die-cast metals and other materials in throttle body valves, crankshaft flanges, water pump housings and impellers, thermostat housings, air management systems, as well as alternative and bio-fuel applications, and hybrid powertrain components.
