Ticona: PPS Production Capacity Increased

Fortron Industries LLC, an affiliat of Celanese Corporation, a leading global technology and specialty materials company, will increase production at its plant in Wilmington, N.C./USA, to meet an increased global demand for Fortron polyphenylene sulfide (PPS).

The Fortron Industries plant in Wilmington is the world’s largest linear PPS operation with a 15,000 metric ton annual capacity. Fortron’s operation in Wilmington is a joint venture of Kureha Corporation and Ticona Engineering Polymers, a wholly owned subsidiary of Celanese.

There is a growing worldwide demand for Fortron PPS, a high-performance polymer used in demanding industrial applications. This specialty material offers excellent chemical and thermal resistance, high hardness, rigidity and dimensional stability, and low creep and moisture absorption. PPS is often used instead of metals and thermosets in applications such as auto pumps, valves, air ducts and powertrains; electronic connectors, plugs, switches and circuit boards; structural and non-structural aircraft components; and heater grilles, impellers, conveyors, power tools, microwave elements and other industrial uses.
