has introduced a line of thermoformable acetal copolymer sheets based on Celcon
TF resins from Ticona LLC, Florence, Ky.
The German company H+H Celcon
, for example, has incorporated BASF's phase-change material in aerated cement blocks.
DuPont's Delrin acetal went up 7 cents/lb while Ticona's Celcon
and Hostaform acetals rose 12 cents, as did BASF's Ultraform acetal.
10/lb for Celcon
, Hostaform, and Duracon acetal copolymer; Celanex and Duranex polybutylene terephthalate (PBT); Impet polyethylene terephthalate (PET); Vandar thermoplastic polyester blends; Riteflex thermoplastic elastomer; and Celstran long-fiber-reinforced thermoplastic; and of $0.
Designed by National Molding Corporation (USA) to keep children safely restrained in high chairs and strollers, the Mega-Lok buckle gets is said to derive its strength, along with ease of processing, from Ticona's Celcon

Its Filling and Weighing Division, with plants in Freeport, Texas and Santa Rosa, California, markets its products under the Celcon
and FlexWeigh names.
Ticona has introduced eleven grades of Celcon
(R) MT[TM] acetal copolymer and four grades of Celanex(R) MT[TM] polybutylene terephthalate (PBT), calling the MT line of FDA-compliant engineering resins strong candidates for use in medical-technology applications such as drug-delivery systems, medical devices, and packaging.

Said to be the first acetal developed specifically for commercial meltblown nonwoven fabrics, Celcon
acetal copolymer grade FG40U01 is designed to exceed conventional acetals in the ability to provide greater stability in extrusion on both older and the most up-to-date equipment, especially equipment for processing polypropylene (PP).
