Celanese to expand TPC production in Italy

Celanese has announced the expansion of its Pibiflex and Riteflex TPC production unit at the Donegani facility in Ferrara, Italy. The company said that this measure will support the continued growth of its global engineered materials business.

Celanese recently added one more solid-state polymerisation unit at the Donegani facility, which started up successfully in September 2018. The company expects to expand the production capacity of the unit further by adding another polymerisation line to be completed in the next 15 to 18 months.

Besides TPC, Celanese also offers a range of other TPE like Forprene TPV, Forflex TPO, thermoplastic elastomers based on SBC (Laprene and Sofprene TPS), and solutions for special markets like artificial turf infill (Holo, Forgrin, Terra) and footwear (Sofprene TPS, Sofpur TPU).
