Technology and specialty materials company Celanese Corp., Dallas, Texas, will showcase the scope of its diverse products at K 2013 Oct. 16-23 in Dusseldorf, Germany. Designed to help drive innovation in mobility, water, energy and infrastructure, healthcare and consumer products, the company has chosen the theme, “Celanese – The chemistry inside innovation™.”
“Attendees will see the full scope of the Celanese innovation offerings, from advanced materials to consumer specialty products,” said Maria Ciliberti, Celanese vice president of sales – Europe, Middle East and Africa. “We will show how our highly-diversified materials can provide solutions that help customers manage the megatrends that will shape a broad range of end-use applications.”
In addition to the JEC Innovation Award-winning Agusta Westland thermoplastic composite helicopter tail plane, and innovative solutions for automotive powertrain, advanced fuel systems and interior and exterior components, the expedition sled, or Pulka, used in “Mission Icefox” will be featured. As a highlight, the two extreme athletes, Eric Folz, an engineer at Ticona, and Mike Fuchs, a professional photographer, who successfully completed the three-week trip to the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen in April, will provide insights on their Arctic expedition and experiences with the “Polymers-on-Ice” Pulka, manufactured using Celstran® unidirectional continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites (CFR-TP) and GUR® ultra-high molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMW-PE).
